8 April 2021: Have you been waiting to experience a taste of what it’s like to Set Sail the Virgin Way? Since Virgin Voyages can’t sail out of PortMiami just yet, they’re taking this opportunity to do a homecoming tour, heading back to where the Virgin brand first got its start. Sailing out from Portsmouth, England! This summer, after a year filled with adversity and stillness, it’s time to reward yourselves with outstretched horizons and unrivalled experiences — making a years worth of unused luggage in memories along the way, in a relaxed adults-only environment at sea.
For only three weeks in August, Scarlet Lady will be making six, short and sweet sailings around the southern coast of England — giving you a sneak-peek of who she is and what she’s all about. It’s the staycation-at-sea you’ve dreamed about all year, all while being the first to set sail on Scarlet on either a four-night Summer WeekDaze voyage, a three-night Long Weekender voyage, or book both sailings back-to-back for a full week at sea.
From 20+ unique eateries to getting a proper dose of Vitamin Sea at the spa or any of the fitness spaces, Virgin Voyages are ecstatic to finally show a select group of Sailors what makes them really stand out from the rest. The entertainment line-up will be a showcase of the very best experiences — giving you a glimpse of the immense talent they’re so thrilled to have on board.
As an ode to Virgin’s roots, both the United Kingdom and rock’n roll, they’re also tweaking their entertainment programming slightly for these sailings to highlight some local musicians and artists who haven’t been able to go on the road (or sea) over the past year.
The Summer Soiree sailings are on sale now!
Full payment will be required at time of booking.
And as with all Virgin Voyages, these sailings are adult-only and include access to all of the restaurants, group fitness classes, WiFi, tips, and all basic bevvies.

Vaccinations or Tests?
Most importantly, Virgin Voyages are committed to a healthy and safe start at sea, and would never set sail without the proper precautions and considerations in place. With their Voyage Well initiative — which includes, but is not limited to, enhanced cleanings, contactless experiences, a new air purification system, reduced capacity, and frequent testing and vaccine requirements — they’ve made sure sailing safely is top priority.
Based on their own assessments, the UK has determined that its citizens can safely sail this summer. So at this time, only residents of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland (British Passport holders) will be sailing on the Summer Soirée Series — with Sailors aged 18+ vaccinated against COVID-19. Additional testing and protocols will be confirmed closer to sailing — all in line with the most up to date recommendations from the UK government.
