Introducing Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady – Adults Only Cruising

Virgin Voyages is ushering in a new age of adults-only cruising with their first ship, Scarlet Lady.

Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady

They call their guests, “Sailors” who seek Adult-by-Design experiences. They’ll defy the rules and catch you delightfully off-guard, so that you can build your experience, moment by moment, exactly as you want it.

This yacht inspired, mid-sized ship homes 2,770 sailors and 1,150 crew on 4 and 5 night sailings.   You’ll find 17 decks with 20+ eateries, as a matter of fact, they are re-thinking how people eat and drink at sea.  No buffets.  No cover charges.  And no main dining room.  Eat where you want, when you want.

Virgin is completely re-thinking how they do entertainment at sea.  The entertainment is intimate, fun, surprising and at times weird (in a good way).  Their goal is to change views and perspectives.  They are working with some of the brightest up and coming creative minds, who push boundaries, to create uniquely Virgin Voyage parties, music and shows to inspire and enthuse.

The clever cabins on board Scarlet Lady are personal retreats with modern aesthetics, yacht-like sensibilities and functional details.  A boutique hotel feel with a focus on functionality – auto sensory lighting and ac settings for energy conservation.  86% have balconies – or “sea terraces” in Virgin terms.

There are some things you need to see to believe, like the cabins & suites on board Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady.  The cabins are transformed from day-time functionality mode perfect for lounging and relaxing while enjoying the ocean views – to evening mode – for ultimate rest and relaxation.

So where will this magnificent ship take you? 

4 & 5 night itineraries offer plenty of time in port to explore and promote self-discovery in places like Costa Maya, Mexico, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, Key West, Florida, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Cozumel, Mexico. 

Each itinerary also makes a day trip to Virgin’s exclusive Beach Club at Bimini, Bahamas.  There’s something about a twilight beach bonfire with the
right Sailors that can’t be put into words…

When it comes to sustainability, Virgin Voyages wants to set a new standard, not only for ocean voyages, but for all travel.

They are using state-of-the-art technologies to optimize fuel and energy performance. Their aim is to reduce their fuel demand with smart itinerary planning and energy efficient technologies. Roughly 60% of their fuel consumption is for propulsion and 40% is for powering on board operations.

The best kind of waste, is the kind that doesn’t exist.  That’s why they are reducing waste by not generating it in the first place.

  • No single use plastics – That’s not just straws, it’s plastic water bottles, coffee cups, ketchup packets, cutlery, bags, coffee stirrers, and more
  • Landfills with less “fill” –  DIVERTING WASTE FROM LANDFILLS. The onboard recycling program collects metals, paper, plastic and glass to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill. 
  • Going Re-usable as much as possible – Reducing disposables by more than 60% in comparison to standard operations. Disposable items that couldn’t be eliminated are sourced responsibly to include TreeFree™ and plastic-free items. Refillable, rather than disposable, soap and shampoo dispensers are available in the cabins. 
  • Eliminating Food Waste – This is a BIG one – They’ve ELIMINATED FOOD BUFFETS!!!!! All food is made-to-order, preventing an estimated 225 tons of food waste per ship each year. 

Sound intriguing?   Now is the time to book your adults-only cruise during Virgin Voyages’ inaugural season!
