Debuting in 2021, Scarlet Lady is the first of four Virgin Voyages cruise ships. Aimed at the 'adult by design' crowd so all sailors are over 18, Scarlet Lady was designed by people who have never cruised themselves, and who are therefore well placed to give first-time and previous non-cruisers the amenities and features to attract them. With her truly unique outline, colour scheme and deck plans, you’re sure to notice her in any Caribbean port - not to mention the iconic mermaid emblazoned on her bow in contrast to the flying lady of Virgin Atlantic airways.

Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady is the first large cruise ship to throw away the idea of providing a buffet dining venue as one of their staple restaurants, as well as having no set dining times or dress code. Instead, sailors will find more than twenty individual, made-to-order restaurants, cafés, lounges and various other dining venues including:
As well giving you the chance to sample fresh flavours from all over the globe while sunning it up in the Caribbean, Virgin Voyages are revolutionising cruise cuisine in more ways too. Banning single use plastics such as cutlery, packaging or straws from their food preparation and serving methods, Virgin Voyages are not only looking to make dining at sea clean for your body, but also for the oceans.
Onboard Scarlet, Lady Virgin Voyages transport sailors to a hedonistic adults’ playground where every moment is filled with excitement or relaxation depending on how you like it. Moving away from classic Broadway productions, the entertainment onboard is more akin to a festival lineup, with immersive, contemporary shows developed by world-famous producers, choreographers and directors.
With Scarlet Lady you’ll find a fantastic variety of entertainment performances in The Red Room theatre, the ship's main performance space. With a retractable stage and varying set ups to host the six shows, you’ll be able to see anything from acrobatics to cheeky cabaret in The Red Room during your adventure on Scarlet Lady.
As if that wasn’t enough, while soaking up the sunshine on Scarlet Lady’s decks, 80 flashmob-style shows pop up throughout the day to bring fun-filled entertainment that truly breaks the fourth wall.
Other venues include:
As well as offering unrivalled dining options, Virgin Voyages also revolutionise how you spend your time onboard. With their new concept Vitamin Sea, Virgin Voyages mix your onboard activities into a balance of detox and retox, to makes sure you go home truly rejuvenated and refreshed.
Examples of retox include:
Meanwhile, detox activities are:
My wife fell over on the ramp that was very steep we were promised special assistance that we asked for but never got it spoilt the whole embarking experience. The restaurant had no mushrooms or asparagus that was on the menu.
Scarlet Lady is designed for young Americans. It's not for experience, senior cruisers unless they want a phone in their hand all day, to do anything and everything on the stupid App. Also, very difficult to find a comfortable chair or a place where one's space is not invaded by loud music.
Everything on Virgin cruises depend on an App which is rubbish. There is no paper on board, no welcome pack, no information about restaurants, no cabin menu's, I am on holiday, I don't want to spend every minute looking at my phone to know where I am or to know what might be happening, to order a drink or food, or to book a table in a restaurant or to book a seat in a show. And why can I only visit a restaurant of my choice once during the 'cruise'. The seating throughout the ship is 50% stools and 50% uncomfortable chairs and the plastic 'garden chairs' in the Razzle Dazzle Cafe, (which is like a prison eating room with long tables seating a dozen people) are a joke, but not funny, nor was the bacon that came in a mug !!!. The 'buffet' facility on deck 15 provides inedible food. (the worst burger I have ever seen and a dead white, leather like omelette, which was served 30 seconds before our starter course of soup which was also inedible).....(The waiter smiled knowingly as she apologized). The public toilets have black floor, black walls, black doors, black urinals, black basins and stupid lighting, I walked into a full length mirror trying to find my way out !!! The man that designed the toilets had obviously never been in a public toilet. The ship was apparently designed by a team who had never been on a cruise, that was quite obvious, they omitted to provide tea and coffee facility in cabins. I was advised that I should order room service at 05.00 am if I needed a drink, but I don't want to be confronted by a waiter at that time in the altogether !!!, A kettle is a fundamental basic in any hotel room, B&B, tent etc, There was no shaver point in bathroom, and so much more that failed to impress. Go to Miami Scarlet Lady and Good Riddance.
Service was excellent, staff was excellent, food when we could get into the restaurant was excellent, the app was absolutely rubbish it kept throwing us out and we couldn’t book anything I was very disappointed and I would not recommend it to anybody else until it has been sorted out properly.
