Customer Reviews

The Norfolk lunch dinner cruise was enjoyable, however, I was disappointed in the Virgin service. Virgin indicated a booking for a food tour was available for March 5th.I requested to book it. However,Virgin delayed the booking for several days and by the time they booked it the date was no longer available. The next available date was 3 weeks later In addition, I was charged an additional $30+ for re-booking an alternate event(the lunch cruise). The vendor indicated the usual ticket price was less than the original price of the food tour. I am requesting that the additional charge be refunded to me since it was Virgin's responsibility for not booking the original event in a timely manner.

The cruise lunch was cancelled by the original organizer. We reached the venue and waited long to board as the cancellation was not informed to us by Virgin Experiences. Our family travelled long distances and we had to bear the travel and food expenses since the cancellation was not informed. Please refund or provide option to rebook. We are totally not satisfied with Virgin Experiences as they do not know till now whether it was cancelled by the original organizer or not.

Great food, great staff. The people and the staff made this event so fun. Would do it again.
Loved the entire experience. Everything was very organized and right on time. They gave us a glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary which was a very nice surprise. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something special to do on special occasions. Very reasonable priced. We traveled from Indiana to do this cruise in Norfolk Virginia and loved every second.
My wife and l had a great time. Every member of the crew was very friendly, therefore creating an atmosphere that was very welcoming. The food also was great. I will highly recommend this to anyone.
