Shake for champagne aboard Virgin Voyages

Imagine if you could just shake your phone and champagne appeared. It sounds like something out of a dream, but Virgin Voyages are making it happen on their ships.

Thanks to Shake for Champagne, Sailors will be able to order champagne wherever, whenever they need it with a simple shake of their phones.

“It is never too early for champagne and there is always something to toast to while aboard Scarlet Lady,” Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, said. “We want our Sailors to enjoy a glamorous holiday and what better way to feel like a RockStar than a sip of bubbly whenever and wherever you want it?”

Sailors will be able to celebrate all of life’s moments with Virgin Voyages’ on-demand champagne delivery service. When the Sailor App is shaken, a secret champagne button appears and, with just one press, a bottle of Möet & Chandon Impérial will be delivered in a Virgin red champagne bucket. We make no promises about Richard Branson being the one to deliver it, however.

“We are committed to creating the world’s most irresistible travel brand, so we thought long and hard about how to help our Sailors effortlessly get a sip of the good stuff during their voyage, and presto Shake for Champagne was conjured up!” said Nathan Rosenberg, CMO at Virgin Voyages.

The Shake for Champagne app

The Shake for Champagne service includes a 750ml bottle of Möet & Chandon Impérialwith two glasses. Möet & Chandon Impérial is a blend of over 200 crus, mingling the full body of pinot noir with the suppleness of Meunier and the finesse of chardonnay – the perfect pairing for a day or evening sailing in the warm Caribbean sea. 


Virgin Voyages has also announced a brand new champagne lounge and caviar bar, Sip – the perfect place to enjoy a chilled glass of bubbles. Here Sailors will find a diverse range of champagne labels, including Möet & Chandon – Virgin Voyages’ featured champagne house. Sailors can opt for a glass of bubbly from $9 or splash out on a $1,000 vintage bottle.

Sip will also play host to a signature afternoon high tea, in a nod to Virgin’s quintessential British heritage. This will delight the eyes as well as the taste buds.

The vision for Sip was inspired by the glamour and effervescence of champagne. It features a long marble bar, with decor in gold and rose pink hues that echo the colour of the champagnes that will be served.
