While it might not be the Love Boat, there is much love between two entrepreneur icons, Richard Branson and Ryan Reynolds. In a recent announcement, the pair shared that Aviation Gin will be served on Virgin Voyages ships. After soaring high with success with shaking up cocktails on Virgin Airways, the pair are setting a new course for adventure. Whether there is a mind for a new romance on this ship or just a promise of a little extra playfulness, the cocktail glass will never be empty.

Now that the Scarlet Lady has set sail from the port of Miami, many people have fallen in love with this new style of sea adventure. Described in many ways, the adults-only cruise creates a playground where stress floats away on an ocean breeze and voyagers are encouraged to embrace the experience.

From exquisite dining options to the dance filled nights, the “sailors” are sailing the sophisticated seas. Forget checking off the boxes, this lifestyle focused escape is one that has people running to jump aboard.

According to the recent announcement, Aviation Gin will be featured in a variety of specialty cocktails. From classic gin cocktails to specially created options from the mixology team, the shaker is waiting to be put to use.

Check out this Virgin Voyages video from the Reynolds and Branson.

While Reynolds longs for those kid-free moments of bliss, he is coming close to his “childhood dream was to have a guest role on ‘The Love Boat’ alongside Vic Tayback.” Although the mixologists on Virgin Voyages might not have the vintage Issac look, they can shake up a great cocktail and a spirited conversation.

Virgin Voyages has sought to creating a food and beverage program unlike any other ship. From the multi-course tasting menu of the Food Lab to the interactive experience in its Gunbae restaurant, sailors feast on a plethora of food options that never leave them waiting.

As the Aviation Gin is woven into the bar program, many people will be mixing up their shaking for champagne with a expertly crafted gin cocktail. From twists on classics to innovative offerings, sailors will be toasting to the good life at every turn.
