Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady Cruises

Make plans with us now to meet and experience the Scarlet Lady, a mid-sized boutique ship that will sail from Miami to the Caribbean in 2020 hosting more than 2,770 sailors-(Guests) and 1,160 amazing crew from around the world. The Scarlet Lady will be Adult-by-Design, a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveler. A dose of “Vitamin Sea” will be naturally intertwined across the entire ship, with well-being activated through a mix of high-energy moments coupled with relaxation and rejuvenation.

Virgin Voyages, the new lifestyle brand set to disrupt the cruise industry and owned by Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, recently released itinerary details and cabin designs for the company’s first ship, Scarlet Lady. With four and five night voyages to the Caribbean, “Sailors” will set sail in sleek über yacht style with Virgin Voyages’ patent pending cabin design featuring the Seabed, a completely new transformational bed that converts from full-sized bed to lounger. The Seabed allows Sailors the unique opportunity to transform their cabin from a quiet hideaway to relax to a place to revel among friends.

With several cabin categories there are 1,330 cabins aboard the Scarlet Lady and 78
Rock Star Suites. Every “Sailor” wishing to voyage aboard the Scarlet Lady can find their special hideaway with roomy XL Sea Terrace cabins, Sea Terrace cabins, Sea View cabins, Insider cabins, Social Insider cabins that sleep up to four in a chalet-style bunk and Solo Insider cabins designed and priced exclusively for the solo traveler.  All terraces aboard Scarlet Lady will feature custom-designed hammocks, hand-woven by artisans from Yellow Leaf a social enterprise that fosters women’s empowerment and community transformation in rural Thailand.

Scarlet Lady Seriously Suite

“Sailors” aka Cruise Guests will embark on their journey aboard Scarlet Lady from Miami, where they can toast to the Magic City‟s colorful evening skyline as the ship sets sail at 7 pm.
“Our research with Sailors unearthed their desire to go to places that allow for a variety of experiences,” said Diana Block Garcia, vice president of itinerary and destination development for Virgin Voyages. “We set out on an adventure to find overnight destinations that have a combination of opportunities for high energy exploration and places for relaxation, as the perfect complement to our Virgin Voyages experience. We have composed itineraries that have a sense of palpable culture, history and above all induce that carefree feeling that you only get
while on holiday.”

The Scarlet Lady will offer four and five-night Havana After Dark itineraries that will take “Sailors” on a cultural quest through Cuba, with an overnight stay in Havana that will afford “Sailors” ample time to explore and visit Cuba’s warm and friendly residents through people-to-people exchanges.

Virgin Voyages’ Mayan Sol itinerary will be a five-night voyage to Costa Maya,
Mexico where antiquity contrasts modernism, with Mayan ruins just a stone‟s throw away from the port and colorful coral reefs that lie just off-shore. Virgin Voyages has partnered with ITM Group to bring “Sailors” to this incredible paradise filled with rich history and excitement.

Sea lovers will revel in the Scarlet Lady’s Dominican Daze voyage, where she will
journey to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic on a five-night sailing. Voyages to Puerto Plata will be an ocean lover‟s dream holiday. Puerto Plata is the perfect place for “Sailors” to catch some waves at surf school, explore trekking through canyons or catch a cable car up the mountain to buy handicrafts in an artisan village or enjoy endless island views.
