Virgin Voyages, the cruise line company launched by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, has released renderings of their new cruise ship, the Scarlet Lady, and they are pretty remarkable. The brand's design concept is "The Modern Romance of Sailing," and it features both interiors and exteriors imagined by a handful of the world's most successful design firms. The Scarlet Lady will be geared toward adults, as an year-old age requirement will be held in order to board.
Thankfully, a lot of cruise lines have adults-only areas where passengers can have some peace and quiet during the day while they rest up for a night of barhopping, casinos, or broadway-style entertainment. My children are grown and it is nice to be able to get away in an area that is exclusive for adults. Wonderful area for relaxing and reading, and it's adults only.
Virgin Voyages has released designs of its "rock star suites'' that will be on its first adults-only ship, the Scarlet Lady. Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson said his cruise venture would bring rock and roll to the high seas. The company, hoping to cash in on the booming cruise market, says it was throwing out traditional cliches on luxury and formalities, instead bringing ''rebellious luxe'' to life at sea with the 78 suites. Highlights of the Massive Suite, the top suite aboard the Scarlet Ladyinclude its very own guitar-clad music room, views of the ocean from every corner, and a massive terrace complete with its own Peek-a-View outdoor shower, hot tub, hammocks and a runway outdoor dining table.
In conjunction with opening bookings for sale, Virgin Voyages announced that its first cruise ship, the adults-only Scarlet Lady, will feature stops at The Beach Club, a Virgin Voyages private experience in Bimini, Bahamas. The destination allows travelers the chance to enjoy the island flavor and culture of Bimini and its turquoise blue waters or entertainment from a rotating cast of DJs set to be kicked off by Grammy-winning DJ Mark Ronson. To complete the Virgin experience consumers may have come to expect from other Branson-owned entities, the Scarlet Lady is leaning heavily on entertainment at sea.
