Virgin companies have been named among the best in the world in Travel + Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards.

Voted for by readers, the World’s Best Awards survey asks Travel + Leisure readers to share their opinions on top hotels, resorts, cruise ships, airlines and more. Nearly 165,000 people shared their thoughts in the 2023 survey and Virgin Voyages, Virgin Limited Edition and Virgin Atlantic all made the final lists.
