Just about anything Sir Richard Branson touches in the travel industry turns to gold.

The business mogul and avid explorer has been teasing information about a forthcoming cruise line for quite some time and has officially announced the first details about his next travel venture, Virgin Voyages.

Designed for travelers over the age of 18, Virgin Voyages is hoping that a child-free cruise experience will appeal to a more sophisticated crowd, with Virgin Voyages trading the Vegas-style onboard entertainment common for many contemporary cruise lines for a more relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

When the first ship sets sail from PortMiami, guests can expect a state-of-the-art experience for 2,700 passengers. Virgin Voyages will start with three ships that are expected to cost $3 billion to build, with the ships designed to be more like a yacht versus a traditional cruise vessel. Cruisers won’t have to worry about being stuck without a view since more than 90% of the cabins will have views of the ocean and 80% of the cabins will have a terrace, though there are still no details about what dining and entertainment options will await guests once they set sail.

You’ll have to wait until 2020 to experience Virgin Voyages and the company has yet to reveal the price range for cabins, but sailors can sign up for the pre-sale now with a refundable $500 deposit.
