With its bold presence at the Port of Miami, the Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady is more than just another cruise ship sitting at the dock. Beyond the signature red hue that announces its connection to the Virgin brand, the cruise ship looks to set a tone before, during and after that voyage. The experience might be “Adult By Design,” but the childlike sense of wonder is celebrated at every turn.

Over the years, the cruise industry has seen an uptick in popularity. From the mega-ships that seem like floating cities to Disney cruises to carefully curated adventures on a smaller scale, the idea of unpacking once yet traveling from locale to locale captivates many adventures. While the concept is intriguing, finding the right fit for the traveler might not be quite as simplistic.

With Virgin Voyages, these adventures capture the sentiment and the concept that has made the Virgin brand stand out in a crowd. Anyone who has walked into a Virgin hotel appreciates that a stay is not the typical overnight experience. It is about leaving behind the mundane and appreciating the spirit of the moment.

How does Virgin Voyages Adult By Design set a new course for travel?

During a recent media preview in Miami, guests were able to explore the Scarlet Lady and experience some of the restaurants, bars and entertainment of the new cruise ship. From the initial greeting to the last goodbye, one thing was clear. Every sailor was encouraged to embrace the moment, push away the common place and be open to the possibilities that await.

Even though cruising can satisfy that sense of adventure, the Virgin Voyages concept is more than just a journey. It appeals to total lifestyle. For people who work hard to play hard, this escape appeals to that mindset. From shaking for champagne to resetting the mind and body at a yoga class, the whole person experience is addressed at every turn.

Overall, the experience seems to appeal to the well-balanced lifestyle. From the design of the ship to addressing sustainability, including the banning of single use plastics, the approach seems to capture the “Modern Romance of Sailing.” Whether it is the specially designed Seabed to the glam station to group of sailors helping to guide the experience, that first visit will definitely not be the last.

What is unique to the Virgin Voyages experience?

While travelers have many reasons to choose one cruise ship over another, Virgin Voyages might be the exceptional option for the foodie. With all dining options included in the vacation, guests will appreciate that the menus feature elevating dining, food trends and unique experiences that will satisfy every craving.

Whether it is a nod to the Michelin Star tasting menu dining experience to an interactive Korean meal to a classic steakhouse, it might be hard to sample all the deliciousness. Even the beverage program is unique. With the ability to shake a smartphone and have champagne delivered anywhere on board, this experience is about letting go yet never wanting for anything.

From entertainment to pampering, guests can make their time aboard the Virgin Voyages their own. Guests might step aboard just a traveler, but they will leave appreciating what it means to be a sailor on journey to enjoyment.

Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady is one of four ships that will be part of the fleet. The Scarlet Lady departs from the Port of Miami for various duration cruises throughout the Caribbean. For more information on the cruise line and bookings, please visit the company’s website.
