The Scarlet Lady will sail a variety of four and five-night Caribbean voyages, 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 sailaway on all voyages.

Cabin design

Ninety-three percent of cabins offer an ocean view and 86 per cent feature a Sea Terrace. 

A new patent pending cabin design includes a Seabed, a bed that converts into a lounger and allows travellers to transform their cabin from a quiet hideaway to a place to relax and converse with friends.

The cabins will feature PIR presence sensors that 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.

With thoroughly thought through design, Virgin Voyages deliberately chose to use top quality materiality throughout the cabins, like a saddle leather chair, complete with with refined stitch detail. Most standard cabins will have transitional Seabeds, in-room entertainment with 43”+ 4K flat-screen HDTVs, mini bars, glam areas and flexible wardrobes. All cabins were engineered to optimize bathroom space featuring rain shower heads for a spa-like wash, and all terraces aboard Scarlet Lady will feature custom-designed hammocks.

With several cabin categories there are 1,330 cabins aboard the Scarlet Lady and 78 RockStar Suites. Every traveller 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.

The Scarlet Lady’s inaugural 2020 season will open for bookings this Valentine’s Day, February 14. On this special day, 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. Details about on-shore experiences offered by Virgin Voyages, or Shore Things as they refer to them, will be released in late 2019.

Last week, Virgin Voyages announced that agents can earn 10 per cent commission on all elements of a Virgin Voyages sailing, as they pledge to do away with non-commissionable fares.
