Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady is the first ship in the Virgin fleet and offers a luxury cruise experience that looks to redefine what cruising is all about.

Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady left Miami Wednesday evening for its long-awaited debut after a 17-month long delay as a result of Covid-19.

The ship promises an entirely new experience for passengers with an adult-only restriction, and a base fare that includes wi-fi, all food onboard, group workouts, and beverages. And the ship did not disappoint.

Embarkation was not without hiccups, as all passengers were required to be vaccinated and show proof of a valid covid test before boarding. Once onboard the atmosphere was welcoming, relaxed, and sophisticated.

What is it like onboard Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady?

The uniqueness of Scarlet Lady is its approach to how cruises look and feel. The ship incorporated a balanced mix of high-energy activities and entertainment while providing plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind. Having the chance to let loose is a large part of cruising, and Scarlet Lady provides passengers the opportunity to do so while encouraging social interactions, and the chance to make lifelong friends through engaging group activities.

Scarlet Lady is a mid-sized ship carrying up to 2770 passengers, so you won’t be overwhelmed by the large crowds seen on today’s mega-cruise ships

How is the food on Scarlet Lady?

Scarlet Lady did away with the mass buffets and replaced them with more than 20 dining spaces each with a unique look, menu, and experience. With all of the dining options included in the base fare, you can dine at any of the incredible restaurants with menus designed by Michelin-star chefs.

What about the entertainment?

Scarlet Lady offers an abundance of onboard entertainment. From nightclubs, to live shows, and even gaming areas, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
