The Massive Suite includes an expansive sea terrace complete with outdoor Jacuzzi, a dining table for six with a staircase to help sailors make their way to dance on top of the table, a private outdoor shower, hammocks and a catamaran net for stargazing.

Virgin Voyages said its first ship will debut in 2020 with 78 Rock Star Suites, featuring a retro-futurism design with a palette of deep blues used with iridescent dichroic elements to echo the deep blue sea.

The suites, designed by Tom Dixon's Design Research Studio, come in eight versions and range from a 352-square-foot Serious Suite to the 2,147-square-foot Massive Suite.

Each suite comes equipped with a VIP perks such as a personal assistant "Rockstar Coordinator," private transportation, a personal wardrobe team to help guests pack and unpack, complimentary pressing service, nightly express swimsuit drying service and exclusive early access to onboard entertainment and restaurants.

Another perk is exclusive access to Richard's Rooftop -- a secluded, members-only club for guests in the RockStar Suites to bask in the sun or have a drink under the stars.

The Serious Suites feature an open-plan lounge and bedroom, sea terrace with chairs, plus a luxurious bathroom with a window to see the sea.

A step up, between 416 and 661 square feet, the Sweet Aft Suites are positioned centrally at the aft of the ship. Virgin said they provide "the most Instagrammable wake view directly from the bed or even from inside the shower."

The 482-square-foot Brilliant Suites have an open plan featuring a stocked bar with record player and sea terrace complete with a hammock swing chair.

And the 570-square-foot Gorgeous Suite features an open-plan lounge and bedroom, a bathroom with a window to the sea, an expansive sea terrace featuring an outdoor shower, lounge chairs and a hammock.

Ranging between 607 and 848 square feet, the Cheeky Corner Suites' wrapping panoramic views from the corner of the ship provide views of the sea, larger balconies with sofa loungers and interconnecting doors to adjacent sea terrace cabins. 

Further versions include the 833-square-foot Posh Suite and the 950-square-foot Fab suite. 

The Massive Suite includes an expansive sea terrace complete with outdoor Jacuzzi, a dining table for six with a staircase to help sailors make their way to dance on top of the table, a private outdoor shower, hammocks and a catamaran net for stargazing.

"Virgin has always avoided stuffy formalities and brought lot of excitement and a bit of rebelliousness to our customer experiences," said Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group. "With these glamorous suites, Virgin Voyages is bringing rock-and-roll to the high seas and spoiling our sailors like the rock stars they are."
