Virgin Voyages has released itinerary details and cabin designs for the company’s first ship, Scarlet Lady. With 4- and 5-night voyages to the Caribbean. It will sail a variety of Caribbean voyages befitting of any curious traveller’s tastes, with 4- and 5-night Havana After Dark itineraries featuring an overnight stay in Havana, Cuba; 5-night Mayan Sol voyages to Costa Maya, Mexico and 5-night Dominican Daze voyages to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Sailors will be able to explore more with extended hours in port with an overnight or a late-night sail away on all voyages.
Sailors will embark on their journey aboard Scarlet Lady from Miami, where they can toast to the Magic City’s colourful evening skyline as the ship sets sail at 7 pm.
“Our research with Sailors unearthed their desire to go to places that allow for a variety of experiences,” said Diana Block Garcia, vice president of itinerary and destination development for Virgin Voyages. “We set out on an adventure to find overnight destinations that have a combination of opportunities for high energy exploration and places for relaxation, as the perfect complement to our Virgin Voyages experience. We have composed itineraries that have a sense of palpable culture, history and above all induce that carefree feeling that you only get while on holiday.”
The Scarlet Lady will offer 4- and 5-night Havana After Dark itineraries that will take Sailors on a cultural quest through Cuba, with an overnight stay in Havana that will afford Sailors ample time to explore and visit Cuba's warm and friendly residents through people-to-people exchanges.
Virgin Voyages’ Mayan Sol itinerary will be a 5-night voyage to Costa Maya, Mexico where antiquity contrasts modernism, with Mayan ruins just a stone’s throw away from the port and colourful coral reefs that lie just off-shore. Virgin Voyages has partnered with ITM Group to bring Sailors to this incredible paradise filled with rich history and excitement.
Sea lovers will revel in the Scarlet Lady’s Dominican Daze voyage, where she will journey to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic on a 5-night sailing. Voyages to Puerto Plata will be an ocean lover’s dream holiday. Puerto Plata is the perfect place for Sailors to catch some waves at surf school, explore trekking through canyons or catch a cable car up the mountain to buy handicrafts in an artisan village or enjoy endless island views.
The Scarlet Lady’s inaugural 2020 season will open for bookings this Valentine’s Day, February 14. On this special day, Virgin Voyages will reveal more details relating to the ship’s onboard experience as well as an additional destination to be featured on all voyages. Details about on-shore experiences offered by Virgin Voyages, or Shore Things as they refer to them, will be released in late 2019.
