Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady Exclusive Virtual Ship Tour!
December 10, 2019
Virgin Voyages is set to debut its first
ship, Scarlet Lady, in early 2020. Bookings for this forward-thinking ship have just
opened this past week. If you haven’t been keeping up with all of the reveals
and updates about this brand-new ship, don’t worry we have you covered.
I’m DB from EatSleepCruise.com and here’s everything you need to know about
Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady. Scarlet Lady is breaking the cruise mold and is
restricting the age of its sailors to 18 plus. While some cruise lines are more
family-friendly than others, Virgin Voyages is launching as an adults-only
cruise with a design aimed to appeal to the 18-plus crowd. Scarlet Lady will
depart from Miami, Florida with all sailings leaving at 7 p.m.
Virgin’s new terminal which is in the works will face downtown Miami with a
design inspired by Miami Beach palm trees. The rooftop will resemble a palm
tree grove allowing natural light into the building. The state-of-the-art
terminal set to be finished by 2021 will be aimed at providing a seamless shore
to ship experience. Thus far, Virgin Voyages has announced three
distinct itineraries that will allow sailors more time to visit and explore
the ports of call. The Havana After Dark itinerary will include four and five
night sailings that will feature an overnight in Havana, Cuba. There will also
be a Mayan Sol itinerary that will feature a stop at Costa Maya. Finally,
there’s the Dominican Daze itinerary that will feature a stop in Puerto Plata,
Dominican Republic. Each itinerary will also visit the second port of call
Bimini, Bahamas. This destination includes access to the Beach Club at Bimini, a
private beach exclusive for those sailing on the ship.
jJust a short ride away from the pier, the beach club at Bimini will rival the best
beach clubs in the world. The private paradise will overlook the ocean and
offer an expansive lagoon-style pool. The club’s vibe will transform throughout
the day with yoga and meditation spots in the morning to a high-energy DJ led
pool party during the day and a beach bonfire to end the evening. Grammy
award-winning DJ, Mark Ronson, will be among the first to perform. The club will
also offer plenty of hammocks and beach loungers to relax as well as some
private poolside and beach-side cabanas for rent. It’ll also include
complimentary food options, active areas for watersports, and an exclusive area for
those staying in the Rockstar Suites. Imagine a cruise with no main dining
room, no buffet, and no set dinner times. Well, look no further than Virgin Voyages.
Scarlet Lady is set to revolutionize the whole dining experience on a cruise ship.
There will be 20 plus dining options on the ship that will all be included in
your cruise fare. From casual options to upscale dining experiences, there will be
no up charges to dine at any of the restaurants.
Virgin Voyages has announced several of these eateries that will debut on
Scarlet Lady. Perhaps the most talked-about venue is Razzle-Dazzle, this
upbeat dining spot which gets its name from the practice of camouflaging ships
during World War I and World War II. The restaurant offers a naughty and nice
take on dining as well as an infamous drag brunch. The Test Kitchen set in a
laboratory like environment will be part cooking school and part restaurant. Gunbae will be a Korean barbecue that is sure to have a lively atmosphere.
Complete with a complimentary round of soju, you’ll be encouraged to participate
in Korean drinking games throughout the night. Extra Virgin will be an Italian
eatery serving handmade pasta while Pink Agave will be an upscale Mexican
restaurant. There will also be casual options which include the Dock, a beach
club inspired al fresco eatery offering small plates. The Galley will be a quick
service spot with stations and food carts serving up burgers, paninis, tacos, sushi,
and more. Virgin Voyages has made the claim that there will be no nickel and
diming on Scarlet Lady. All cruise fares will include basic beverages like soda,
bottled water, coffee, and tea. Cruise fares will also include all gratuities,
even on services such as spa treatments. Virgin Voyages will also not charge
additional fees for other cruise add-ons like fitness classes as many rival
brands do. Wi-Fi will also be complimentary on the ship. Now, you can
share all the highlights of your voyage on social media at no additional charge.
When she debuts, Scarlet Lady might have some of the most lavish suites at sea.
With 78 Rock Star Suites in total, there will be eight different suite categories.
All suites include fully stocked bars, peekaboo showers, and access to exclusive
areas on the ship. Sweet-Aft Suites will feature large balconies and great views
from anywhere in the room, with the Cheeky Corner Suites boasting open
concepts also overlooking the wake of the ship. There will be even larger suites like
the Gorgeous Suites, Posh Suites, and Fab Suites, offering distinct living and
sleeping quarters as well as an outdoor shower. If you want to really party like
a rock star and can afford it, you’ll want to book one of the two Massive
Suites on board the ship. These suites feature a music room with guitars and
vinyl turntable, a hot tub, and outdoor dining area. If you can’t afford that
lavish lifestyle, there are other stateroom options as well. All rooms
including the Sea Terrace, Sea View, Insider, and Solo rooms will feature
flexible furnishings. These rooms will also feature sleek and stylish decor, a
4k HDTV, and rain shower heads in the bathroom. There will also be
technological and energy-saving settings that will sense your presence in the
room. When you return, the room will adjust a/c and lighting based on the time of day and open the blinds to welcome you back home. Many staterooms will also
offer the new sea beds which are transformational pieces that convert
from lounger by day to bed at night. Virgin Voyages has also announced that
93% of all cabins will have an ocean view, and 86% will have a balcony complete
with hammocks of course! Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady will be home
to the first ever tattoo studio at sea. The cruise line has teamed up with the
world-famous Tattoo Ink, Soho Ink, and Freshly Inked Magazine to create
lifelong memories for their sailor.s Squid Ink will have two resident tattoo
artists and among them will be some of the best world-renowned guest artists.
The shop will also offer body piercings and permanent makeup treatments. In
keeping with its theme of throwing all of the cruise rules out the window, Virgin
Voyages’ Scarlet Lady will take entertainment to the next level, offering
alternative happenings around the ship. The Red Room will be the
transformational theater with four different configurations to allow for
completely different experiences throughout the cruise. Scarlet Lady will
feature six original shows by award-winning producers including
Phantom Folktales, Ships in the Night, and Dual Reality, a modern twist on Romeo and
Juliet. There will even be the Never Sleep Alone with relationship therapist
Dr. Alex Schiller. These shows promise to be engaging, participatory ,and unlike
anything you’ve ever experienced on a cruise before. Virgin Voyages is set to
offer a unique, boutique take on cruising that is rooted in the modern romance of
sailing. Along with a more all-inclusive feel and an array of dining experiences,
this cruise line will have many firsts at sea. These include the Athletic Club,
an adult playground complete with a boxing ring, gymnastics equipment, outdoor
yoga classes, and a halo-like jogging track on the top of the ship. In addition
to tossing the traditional dining concept out the window, Virgin voyages
will have no formalities, so you can cruise however you choose.
Virgin Voyages not only values passenger well-being but also aims to provide
sustainable experiences. While many cruise lines are also moving in this
direction, Scarlet Lady will have no single-use
plastics including straws, bottled water, coffee cups, and more.
