Castaways Travel invites you aboard Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady
Virgin Voyages launches April 1, 2020, on their purpose-built, aptly named ship, the Scarlet Lady. The decor is sleek, the technology brilliant and the food epic. A milestone design, the ship is eco-conscience...no trash or plastic waste in its wake. This may be the first cruise ship that is...well, you.
Are you are a foodie? Then you'll love the over twenty restaurants, cafes and other eateries and 24-hour room service. Venture out or stay in, your taste buds have nearly endless choices from steak to seafood, BBQ, ethnic delights like Italian and Korean, even vegetarian. Want to learn how to make some of your favorite dishes? The Scarlet Lady has a test kitchen restaurant and cooking school. The Gallery Food Hall replaces the tired buffet and has many choices for sailors on the go.
And the best news of all is Virgin Voyages cruise pricing includes: onboard tips, basic beverages*, internet, and all eateries.
Can't wait to join the party? We got you covered! The Manor has that sexy, yet funky vibe that gets your juices flowing. Dance to one of the top DJ's on the planet and stick around for a show with drag divas that will make you laugh out loud. The deck pool is the perfect place to work on that tan. If you want to minimize the tan lines, come on up to the topless Crow's Nest and bring your sunscreen!
Cruises are great to see the sights, to tempt your taste buds and have supercharged fun, but you can use your cruise to recharge and refresh body and spirit. There's deck yoga, The Runway jogging track is perfect to work up a sweat or feel the burn in the B-Complex Gym. And what cruise would be complete without a spa to indulge all your senses?
The Scarlett Lady even has a tattoo parlor. How about a sassy tat to commemorate an epic vacation at the Squid Ink tattoo parlor?
Virgin Voyages is departing from the port of Miami, the Scarlet Lady will be visiting the following ports of call with 4 and 5-night itineraries:
- Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
- Havana, Cuba
- Costa Maya, Mexico
- The Beach Club (Bimini, Bahamas)
We hope this "ship-tease" has tempted you to book your cruise! But book soon starting on Valentines Day, 2019. With just the Scarlett Lady to launch their brand new cruise line, Virgin Voyages will sell out fast.
With a Virgin Voyages Cruise, you can bring friends and share a cabin so don't be shy.

Scarlet Lady, the first Virgin Voyages vessel to set sail, will be on her maiden voyage April 1, 2020. She will be accompanied by sister ships in 2020 and two more in 2020 - Names to be announced.
Scarlet Lady: She deserved to be built by the best. That means she is taking form in Italy. Even her food, wine and art will be influenced by the romance of Italy.
Virgin Voyages partnered with ship-building aficionados, Fincantieri, to bring the unique vision of her loving designers, Creative Collective into reality, much like the Pygmalion effect. That's when an artist pours their vision, love and talent into a work of art; it comes to life.
In a dockyard in Genoa, over a bottle of fine Italian wine, she was conceived to encompass the most exceptional experiences on the seas. Note: as tempting as it was, no wine was consumed in the making of the Scarlett Lady!
Where did the inspiration for the name, Scarlet Lady, come from you ask? It was in part, in honor of one of the early Virgin Airlines planes, but just as important, it calls attention to the company's commitment to fostering gender equality across Virgin Voyages crews, now and in the future. In addition, to launch the ship, they will be launching of Scarlet Squad program. The mother company notes that females are underrepresented in many roles and leadership positions and plans to give more women these opportunities.
And what about you, the sailors? Fasten your lifevests because Virgin Voyages is creating a ship where you will have the cruise of a lifetime - hold the guilt. You can enjoy the balance of enjoying the beauty of the earth and being a good steward of it. We would not be surprised to see sailors become repeat cruisers.
The ecology is top of mind as well. Single-use plastic is banned and innovation is the source of energy savings, and ecologically sourced food and products are planned.
The Scarlet Lady is currently under construction, so check back for updates!
