Virgin Voyages has released all the juicy itinerary deets and cabin design pictures for its first ship, Scarlet Lady.
The highly anticipated ship will sail a variety of Caribbean voyages with four and five-night Havana After Dark itineraries featuring an overnight stay in Havana, Cuba; five-night Mayan Sol voyages to Costa Maya, Mexico and five-night Dominican Daze voyages to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
Travellers will be able to explore more with extended hours in port with an overnight or a late-night sail away on all voyages.
The company also revealed 93 per cent of cabins will offer an ocean view and 86 per cent will feature a Sea Terrace.
The cabins will also be decked out with exclusive patent pending layouts designed by PearsonLloyd with Virgin Voyages’ Design team, which uses intelligent architecture to optimize space and views of the ocean.
The cabin is custom-created to accommodate the Seabed, the first-ever transformational cabin bed at sea, specially engineered and handcrafted by Walter Knoll in Germany.
The concept of the Seabed came from the convivial nature of cruising, and gives Sailors more space for social gatherings in the cabin– and eliminates the unspoken awkwardness of inviting new friends over with no place for them to sit but on the bed.
“We didn’t want to create the same old box of a bedroom that our Sailors would only use to lay their head down at night, we wanted to reshape the entire cabin experience,” said Dee Cooper, senior vice president of design for Virgin Voyages.
“Whether it’s sleeping, socialising or stargazing they desire, our cabins will transform to match our Sailors’ whims. Stylish yet somehow still informal, these cabins change the face of modern sea travel.”
