Rev: July 1, 2022
1. Offer Terms. At our discretion, Virgin Voyages will offer onboard credits (i.e., “Sailor Loot” in our brand voice) when a Guest (or “Sailor”) refers an additional Sailor to book a cabin on the same voyage using an assigned unique referral link. We call this program the “Sail With Friends” offer.
FOR A LIMITED TIME the promotional offer of a Sailor Loot referral was increased from the usual $50 to $200. The $200 amount is for new referral links created between May 24, 2022 and June 30th 2022, and is not available for existing sailors who are linked in the “Sail With Friends” program.
These terms and conditions detail this offer.
2. Eligibility / How the Program Works
a. Anyone who books a voyage (i.e., places a deposit) with Virgin Voyages will receive a Referral Link. This Referral Link may be shared with another individual who is booking a cabin on the same voyage. We’ll refer to the initial Sailor, who offers their Referral Link, as a “Base Sailor.” We’ll refer to the individuals who book a voyage using the Referral Link from the Base Sailor as a “Referred Sailor”. The offer is based per cabin (regardless of the quantity of sailors booked in each Base or Referred cabin booking).
b. If an individual uses the Referral Link from a Base Sailor to book a cabin on the same voyage as the Base Sailor, $50 in Sailor Loot will be credited to the Base Sailor's cabin. The Referred Sailor who used the referral link will receive $50 in Sailor Loot credited to their cabin as well (“Transaction #1”). The Sailor Loot will be automatically applied upon completion of the booking using the Referral Link.
c. The Base Sailor may be eligible for Sailor Loot for a maximum of sixteen (16) Referred cabin bookings. This means a Base Sailor can receive up to a maximum of $800 in Sailor Loot (that is, sixteen (16) Referred Cabins, multiplied by $50 Sailor Loot, “Sail With Friends” offer from each referral) under this “Sail With Friends” offer.
d. On the ninth Referred Sailor booking using the Base Sailor’s referral link, the collective group will have the option to be converted to a “Circle,” our brand name for group travel with at least ten (10) booked cabins. See [Circle Terms and Conditions].
e. When a Referred Sailor books a cabin, he/she/they will also receive a personal Referral Link. The Referred Sailor may share their Referral Link, and when a new individual book using this second Referral Link, the said Referred Sailor will become a Base Sailor (we’ll call this “Transaction #2”). The Referred Sailor that becomes a new Base Sailor (from Transaction #2), will receive the $50 Sailor Loot from the Transaction #1 and another $50 Sailor Loot from Transaction #2. The new Referred Sailor from Transaction #2 will receive the $50 Sailor Loot. The original Base Sailor from Transaction #1 will not receive any Sailor Loot from Transaction #2.
3. Exclusions / Caveats
a. The Sailor Loot is standard across all cabin/suite categories. If the Base Sailor books a “Sea Terrace” cabin the Sailor Loot they receive under this offer remains unchanged regardless of whether his/her Referred Sailor books a cabin, a RockStar Quarters, or Mega RockStar Quarters.
b. Group / “Circle” Reservations. When a group of Sailors has reached a party of 10 or more booked cabins on the same sailing, they hold the right to convert their party into a “Circle” (as stated in section 2.d) . By converting the group, all booked and linked reservations will forfeit (lose) the Sailor Loot associated with the “Sail With Friends” offer but will be eligible for the associated Circle benefits.
c. Canceled Reservation. If either linked Sailor cancels the bookings 120 days before the voyage starts, both Sailors will forfeit (lose) the Sailor Loot associated with the “Sail With Friends” offer, from the associated link from the canceled booking. If the Base Sailor has multiple referrals, the forfeited amount would only be from the one linked Sailor canceling. If either a Referred Sailor or Base Sailor cancels their booking within final payment (120 days prior to their voyage) after having paid the non-refundable deposit, then the remaining Sailor (either the Base or Referred Sailor) is eligible to keep the Sailor Loot on the booking from referring the other Sailor (Base or Referred) and using the referral link.
d. Applicability to Travel Agents. Travel Agents registered with Virgin Voyages (i.e., “First Mates” in our branding voice) may link bookings under this program on behalf of a Sailor who booked through that First Mate. The First Mate is responsible if at any time the link “breaks,” meaning any of the linked reservations cancel, resulting in the Sailor Loot dropping off of the canceled reservations and the Base Sailor's reservation. All Sailor Loot increments received from “Sail With Friends” are non-commissionable.
e. This Offer can change at any time, without notice. We reserve the right to remove the Sailor Loot from bookings in relation to this program for any Sailor or prohibit any Sailor from participating in the program for chicanery, gamesmanship, or should signs of abuse be present.
f. Combinability. The “Sail With Friends” offer is combinable with most other promotions, particularly individual and public, non-circle promotions. “Sail With Friends” offer is not combinable with Circle offers, Interline rates, Tour Operator rates, sailors traveling on Friends and Family, gifted, or charter voyages, or who travel on a deeply discounted voyage fare (i.e., voyage fares of $100/day or less). Shipload of Love offer, and First Mates’, no-charge access keys, are also excluded. Persons boarding for solely pier-side events do not qualify.
g. Eligible voyages. The higher promotional Sailor Loot amount is available on select revenue voyages on or after May 24th, 2022. Any full-ship accommodation voyages (i.e., Charter voyages) and contractual Circles are excluded from this offer.
