Prepaid “Bar Tab”
You can “prepay” for beverage credit in advance and receive a bonus credit. You do so by purchasing a prepaid “bar tab” for $300. Virgin Voyages will then kick in an additional $50 to $100 on your bar tab as a bonus. You can buy multiple bar tabs.
The bar tab is nonrefundable, and you can only use bar tab, including any bonus, on beverages onboard or at the private The Beach Club at Bimini (i.e., you can’t use the bar tab as general onboard credit). You can buy drinks for others with your bar tab.
