Virgin Voyages has 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 style with Virgin Voyages’ patent-pending cabin design featuring the Seabed, a transformational bed that converts from full-sized bed to lounger.
Scarlet Lady Cabins
There are 1,330 cabins aboard the Scarlet Lady and 78 RockStar Suites.
93 percent of Scarlet Lady’s cabins will offer an ocean view and 86 percent feature a Sea Terrace. Clever cabin lighting will automatically adjust to enhance the time of day based on where the ship is in the world. PIR presence sensors will automatically detect when someone has left the cabin and go into energy saver mode, where blinds will close, and air conditioning will adjust to an eco-saver temperature, conserving energy to support the company’s commitment to operate one of the cleanest fleets at sea.
Dee Cooper, senior vice president of design for Virgin Voyages said:
We didn’t want to create the same old box of a bedroom that our Sailors would only use to lay their head down at night, we wanted to reshape the entire cabin experience. Whether it’s sleeping, socialising or stargazing they desire, our cabins will transform to match our Sailors’ whims. Stylish yet somehow still informal, these cabins change the face of modern sea travel.
Saddle leather chairs, 43”+ 4K flat-screen HDTVs, minibars, glam areas and flexible wardrobes will feature in these cabins. All cabins were also engineered to optimise bathroom space featuring rain shower heads for a spa-like wash. All terraces aboard will feature custom-designed hammocks, handwoven by artisans from Yellow Leaf a social enterprise that fosters women’s empowerment and community transformation in rural Thailand.
Every guest 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 traveller.
Itineraries for Scarlet Lady
Scarlet Lady will offer four and five-night Havana After Dark itineraries with an overnight stay in Havana, five-night Mayan Sol voyages to Costa Maya and five-night Dominican Daze voyages to Puerto Plata.
Diana Block Garcia, vice president of itinerary and destination development for Virgin Voyages said:
Our research with Sailors unearthed their desire to go to places that allow for a variety of experiences. 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.

Scarlet Lady’s inaugural 2020 season will open for bookings this Valentine’s Day, February 14. Virgin Voyages will reveal more details relating to the ship’s onboard experience as well as an additional destination to be featured on all voyages.
