Virgin may already be a pretty big name in the aviation game but from 2020, they will be aiming to take a slice of the ever-growing cruise market with the launch of their new venture, Virgin Voyages and their first ship, the Scarlet Lady.
As you would expect from a Virgin brand, they aim to shake things up a little and will be looking to offer a cruise holiday like no other, wooing a whole new generation of cruise fanatics to the seas.
The Scarlet Lady will sail a variety of Caribbean voyages befitting of any curious traveller’s tastes, with four and five-night Havana After Dark itineraries featuring an overnight stay in Havana, Cuba; five-night Mayan Sol voyages to Costa Maya, Mexico and five-night Dominican Daze voyages to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Sailors will be able to explore more with extended hours in port with an overnight or a late-night sail away on all voyages.
The cabins have been styled to look more like a boutique hotel room than traditional ship cabin. They’lll feature the ‘Seabed’, a new design that converts from a full-sized bed to a lounger. This means that you can make the best use of the limited cabin space and provides a space to socialise with friends too.
As well as all of the usual hotel room amenities that you’d expect, your Virgin Voyages Cabin will all feature clever mood lighting to automatically adjust depending on the time of the day and a whopping 93% of them will offer ocean views!
Roll on 2020 launch!
