Inspired by the modern allure of yachting and the romance of the open ocean, Virgin Voyages has created a boutique hotel at sea. With Richard Branson at the helm, Virgin Voyages is redefining what a luxury cruise ship means by combining premium elements from favorites on land with the freedom and simplicity of a life well lived on the open ocean. Taking cues from the best international cities, Virgin Voyages has curated a getaway at sea with the perfect balance of uptown meets downtown, where paths diverge and choice is an artistic part of the journey. Combining the warmth and luxury of a yacht with the endless options of a much larger ship, we’ve designed an elevated and intimate environment that inspires personal and experiential connection.
Virgin Voyages Cruises is a global lifestyle travel brand committed to creating the world’s most irresistible holiday at sea. With its inaugural season scheduled for 2022 and itineraries planned through 2023, Voyages’ first ship, the Scarlet Lady, was designed to reflect a mega-yacht’s sleek luxury that is Adult-by-Design and a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveler.
Taking a new attitude towards luxury, which the company refers to as Rebellious Luxe, in Voyages will offer incredible value with all eateries, group fitness classes and soft drinks included within the Voyage fare.
The Scarlet Lady cruise ship will have 20+ venues all included in the price. Choices will include The Wake steak and seafood, Pink Agave upscale Mexican cruisine, Razzle Dazzled vegetarian cuisine, Gunbae liverly Korean BBQ, an ice cream ship, coffee bar and the Drought Haus just to name a few.
Virgin Voyages Cruises will have 4 ships in total, with the Scarlet Lady being their first. The 2nd ship came out in 2021, and the 3rd ship in 2022. Their big theme is music. Each ship will feature a record store, live DJ’s, karaoke and each suite will have a record player. No kids, no buffets and no limits.
The ship offers 1,408 cabins with 93 percent having ocean views, and 86 percent with balconies. All standard cabins will have a 43 inch 4K HDTV, mini bar, desk and rain shower heads.
