A cruise ship has broken a world record for the largest gathering of people dressed like mermaids and mermen.

At the Virgin Voyages Beach Club in Bimini, 457 sailors gathered in hundreds of brightly patterned mermaid tails to set the Guinness World Record.

The stunt was pulled to celebrate the Virgin Voyages ship Valiant Lady’s maiden voyage.

In classic Virgin fashion, Richard Branson’s travel brand put together a vibrant event on November 4 this year.

It included music, dramatic makeup, costumes, massive waves and plenty of Champagne – and an official. World record.

As the ship set off from her winter home in Miami, sailors were invited to partake in the incredible attempt to set a world record and to enjoy a collection of mermaid beauty pageants both on-board and at the Beach Club.

Virgin Voyages officially broke the previous record, a gathering of 378 merpeople set in the UK in June of 2022.

Everyone who got stuck in will get a photo and a certificate declaring them part of the record breaking attempt.

Snaps show the many glam mermaids and mermen in shell bikini tops and shimmering tails.

Valiant Lady is Virgin Voyages second ship in the fleet which debuted on October 20.

The ship has touched down in gorgeous ports such as Cozumel, Bimini and Roatán and even the coast of Honduras.

“What a fantastic time,” said Virgin Voyages’ CEO, Tom McAlpin. “Our Sailors really showed up and supported this fun and exciting world record attempt that ties into this legendary brand.

“Each of our ships have a mermaid that guides our Sailors on their journeys, so what better way to celebrate another brand milestone than in sunny Bimini with so many of our Sailors tapping into their mermaid personas.”

From now through April 2023, Valiant Lady will offer a mix of six- and eight-night voyages to some of the Caribbean and Mexico’s most interesting locales.

November also marks the brand’s first-ever Eat & Drink Month in which every cabin will receive a $300 Bar Tab.

Sailors can also take advantage of the Dreamy Getaway offer and snag 25% off and a Bar Tab Bonus on 2022 and 2023 sailings.
