Virgin Voyages are here and we couldn't be more excited about it! They have 4 ships in the pipeline with the first being Scarlett Lady.
The first thing you'll see before heading off on a Virgin Voyages holiday is the terminal! The design is inspired by Miami Beach’s iconic palm trees and the island’s historical origins as an area intended for harvesting coconuts. The rooftop is designed to resemble a palm tree grove, with rooftop pockets that will allow natural light to flow into the building by day and uplighting by night that will light up the company’s iconic Virgin Voyages red logo and allow the terminal to shine bright, mirroring the skyline. The two-story storm-proof glass facility will be replete with lush landscaping giving the terminal a plaza-like feel with designated areas for drop-offs of VIP’s, ride-sharing and provisioning, designed to provide a seamless shore to ship experience.
Who wants to go on holiday with a boad-load of kids? Nope, we thought not! Even parents could use a holiday from their kids sometimes. To relax with a glass of vino or dance the night away - whichever you choose!
Virgin Voyages have taken great care to design a ship where you, your friends or your significant other can have the best possible holiday, sans the unpredictability of kids.
No kidding, you must be over 18 to sail with them. 😉
Just show up with your dreams, curiosity, and love of all things stress-free!
On Virgin Voyages there will be 78 RockStar Suites include fifteen Mega RockStar Suites, named the Massive, Fab, Posh and Gorgeous Suites - all primely located on deck 15, just a deck below Richard’s Rooftop, a RockStar Suite Sailor only, exclusive Sir Richard Branson inspired top deck (and top-shelf alcohol only) cocktail lounge at the ship's forward facing section.
The mega-yacht inspired rooms will include fully stocked in-room bars, terraces equipped with hammocks overlooking the sea, breathtaking top to bottom marble bathrooms (stocked with premium products of course!). The rains-style showers feature multi-coloured dichroic glass windows and doors, providing a sneaky view either inside the room or outside onto the sea, in the aptly named the Peek-a-Boo shower.
The RockStar service starts before you even step onboard the ship! If you're staying in a RockStar Suite you will be offered helicopter arrangements, luggage assistance, private transfers and VIP pathways onto the ship, and you'll be allowed early access to the restaurants and entertainment, there's even a private member's club just for guests staying in the suites.
As part of the rockstar experience, there's also a wardrobe team to help you pack and unpack (cool, huh!?).
The wardrobe team even offer an express swimsuit drying service and a complimentary pressing service. RockStar Sailors can also receive anytime boarding, early booking access to special events and personal rock & roll style rider sheets (with items delivered pre-arrival of course) meant to satisfy even the most diva-like of requests.
With a total of 20+ food choices onboard, you'll be spoilt for choice. Dine wherever you want, whenever you want, in whatever way you want, guaranteed to exceed your expectations. They do not beleive in paying more for great food and have ditched the traditional surcharges. There are surprises waiting around every corner!
And the best bit... there’s already a bar in every restaurant so enjoy a few drinks before or after your meal, after all, you're on holiday!
The Test Kitchen is a laboratory-like cooking school and restaurant in a clean and modern space. Playing the part of the chef you will be given all the ingredients to discover how the onboard chefs combine the flovours throughout the course of the meal! 👨🍳 The experience doesnt end there! Join in one of their mixology schools, a coffee lab or even a late-night lock-in where you will be able to raid the chef's fridge for a midnight feast (amazing, right?!)!
Head over to the Pizza Place for a quick, easy and deliciously satisfying meal. Choose from the classic menu or design your own, the choice is yours! Comfy couches and hammocks make this the perfect place for a chilled out lunch or, if you dont fancy midday pizza head over in the evening for the perfect post-drink hunger-buster! 🍕
If you wanted to say 'Bottoms Up' in Korean, you'd say Geonbae! Every meal starts with a round of soju shots, a Korean national drink (on the house, of course!) before joining in some Korean drinking games! This is a hands on, interactive, fun, rowdy Korean BBQ dining experience. 👩🍳👨🍳 Cook up a delicious meal on the grill at the centre of your table where you can literally play with your food as it cooks. Bottoms up!
Extra Virgin serves regionally-inspired food including fresh pasta made daily (we know, yum!)! What's more, the wine list will be designed with a unique infographic system to help sailors better understand Italian wines and enable them to navigate to the perfect bottle. 🍷 You'll be a wine pro in no time at all!
Feeling hungry? There’s absolutely no reason to interrupt your inner child at play. The Galley’s concepts include a dedicated bakery and pastry shop, a panini shop, a burger grill, a taco shack, a sushi bar with bento boxes, a noodle bar, a soup and salad stand, and a 24-hour American diner (wow - that's a mouthful, literally!). Nestled perfectly in its own delicious corner of the Rooftop Garden, pop in for lunch or dinner – and the most incredible garden and ocean views around.
Situated at the aft end of the ship, Wake offers a dramatic view of the ship’s wake. Serving a theatrical take on steak and seafood, Wake is the most glamorous restaurant on the ship with an experience inspired by The Wolseley – London and The Grill – New York. Offerings include a raw bar, land and sea classics, a cocktail cart and a Sommelier led Magnum program. 🍾
Razzle Dazzle will be home to a tantalizing Drag Brunch. Nurse that hangover while working on a new one! For two days on every voyage, dashing, delightful, beautiful, sassy, scandalous, and scintillatingly spectacular drag queens will take over this space to provide some entertainment even Sin City wouldn't know what to do with (snaps for the queens, please) 💃.
All the meals in Razzle Dazzle are vegan/vegitarian and will be prepared from consciously sourced ingredients served in a fresh, no frills, and downright delicious way. There's sure to be something here for every sailor from scrumptious toasts to juicy burgers and zesty, vibrant salads. With so much variety, you won't need to worry about checking the menu ahead of time for that one picky eater in every group (you know who they are).
