Advisor’s Notes

“The Wake’s interiors looks amazing and the views are incredible. It’s perfect for a brunch or an indulgent dinner. The menu features classics like clam chowder and steak, with a notable raw bar and signature desserts. The chocolate mousse alone is worth the visit!”

The Wake Overview

At the aft of every Virgin Voyages ship, stands The Wake — a two-story homage to the classic transatlantic ocean liners and a nod to old steakhouse, martini-lunch era of Madison Avenue ad men.

It’s the crown jewel of dining experiences aboard, where sailors can indulge in a premium selection of steaks and the fresh seafood.

While most menu items are part of the all-inclusive Virgin Voyages fare, The Wake also offers a selection of experience-enhancing premium items for an additional cost. These include aged Tomahawk steak and a raw bar boasting luxurious selections, from lobster to seafood platters, ensuring that there’s an opulent option for those special nights at sea.

Service and Atmosphere

Type of Service

The Wake is a classic steak and seafood restaurant, and one of the most luxurious experiences on board a Virgin Voyages cruise. It offers a unique dining experience that is sure to please any foodie. The atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated, with a nautical theme that adds to the overall ambiance. The service is impeccable, with attentive waitstaff that are always on hand to offer menu and wine recommendations.

Dress Code

Virgin Voyage’s dress code is “whatever makes you feel like the best version of yourself.” While they don’t enforce any type of dress code (ever!), The Wake’s upscale steakhouse atmosphere so you may want to make an effort. Resort casual for brunch and either resort casual or cocktail attire for dinner seems appropriate.


You know you’re about to embark on a special journey when you enter The Wake. The Wake takes inspiration from the nostalgia of classic ocean liners, with a grand staircase leading to the dining room and incredible views of “the wake” (see what they did there?).

The Wake is the most sought out restaurant on a Virgin Voyages cruise so reservations are recommended, though not required. Walking in might be difficult so show up early to get your name on the wait list and go hang out next door at The Dock House while you wait.

Dinner reservations for The Wake become available via the Virgin Voyages app 60 days before departure for RockStars and Mega RockStars Suites and 45 days for all other Sailors.

Brunch is available daily and you can book onboard.

Virgin Voyages allows one dinner reservation per restaurant on short sailings (1-5 days) and two dinner reservations on longer voyages (6+ days). You can make dining reservations on the Virgin Voyages App. Early booking for RockStar and Mega RockStar Suites 60 days before departure and 45 days for Cabins. Don’t be alarmed if you can’t book ahead of time—only 30% of the seating capacity is available for booking in advance; more slots open up once onboard. If you could not get a reservation or loved a restaurant and want to come back, they do reserve room for walk-ins, so stop by!
