Prepare for a major dose of nostalgia courtesy of an epic 80s’ themed cruise complete with a star-studded line-up sure to transport you back to the iconic decade. 

Imagine Cruising has pulled out all the stops for the Rock and Retro: 80’s Extravaganza Sailcation, which includes an 11-night sun-soaked holiday to Spain, the Canaries and Portugal. 

As for the 80s’ throwbacks? 

We’re talking exclusive performances by Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley, ABC’s lead singer Martin Fry, as well as music from Toyah, T’Pau and Altered Images and DJ sets from Bruno Brookes and Gary Davies. 

Each of the acts will perform multiple times throughout the sailing so there’s ample opportunity to enjoy the music, all while also making the most of the luxury on Virgin Voyages’ Valiant Lady ship. (The second cruise ship for Richard Branson’s new venture).

Passengers – dubbed ‘sailors’ by Virgin Voyages – can dance under the stars at the Aquatic Club, relax poolside, indulge at the Redemption Spa, or make the most of the activities programme inspired by fringe festivals. (The ship even has its own tattoo parlour!).

As for dining, you’ll be spoiled for choice whether you tuck into à la carte steak and seafood at the Wake, indulge in some plant-based treats at Razzle Dazzle, or fill up on some mouthwatering Mexican delicacies at Pink Agave. For something a little different, head to The Test Kitchen, an onboard culinary laboratory and restaurant!

Highlights on the itinerary include the Spanish city of La Coruña, a trip to Madeira, time to explore the Canary Islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria, and a port of call at Portugal’s bustling capital Lisbon.

Prices start from £1,499pp for the 11-night Rock and Retro: 80’s Extravaganza Sailcation, based on a March 21, 2022 departure on a roundtrip from Portsmouth.
