Due to take its maiden voyage from Port Miami to the Caribbean in 2020, the Scarlet Lady is the first of a new fleet of ground-breaking ships created by Virgin Voyages. An adults-only playground boasting high-end “RockStar Suites” with sea views, the ship has plenty to offer travellers looking for a VIP adventure on the high seas, and a first look at what lies in store has just been shared.
Hosting more than 2770 sailors and an international crew of 1160, the Scarlet Lady has been specifically-designed for passengers over the age of 18. The vessel includes “The Massive Suite”, which comes complete with a guitar-clad music room, a large terrace with an outdoor shower and hot tub, as well as an outdoor dining area. Inspired by the design of mega yachts as well as musical style icons such as Grace Jones, the RockStar Suites have been created with modern luxury in mind. They feature leather finishes, marble-clad bathrooms and terrazzo flooring, and each suite comes equipped with a vinyl turntable. The top suites will also have specially-designed champagne tables with in-built ice buckets, stargazing loungers and sustainably-sourced terrace hammocks.
The Scarlet Lady will also offer VIP services for guests renting RockStar Suites, including a specially-dedicated “wardrobe” team to help unpack and repack, a complimentary pressing service and a nightly express swimsuit drying service. Suites also come with a full bar and a cocktail-making kit.
Beyond accommodation, the Scarlet Lady will feature over 20 eateries on board with free dining and free filtered water, while refreshments such as sodas are included in the voyage fare. Wellbeing is also at the forefront of the on-board experience, and guests will be able to take part in fitness classes as well as making the most of relaxation spaces. Classes on offer include yoga, strength conditioning, spinning, and cardio, all of which are held in rooms with ocean views. Other amenities such as whirlpools, two plunge pools, a boxing ring and an outdoor training facility will also be available.
Last October Virgin Voyages announced that the Scarlet Lady will feature Cuba as one of the voyage destinations during the inaugural season.
