PLEASE DON'T STOP THE MUSIC - VIRGIN ENSURE MUSIC FEATURES HEAVILY ONBOARD

March 27, 2019

Virgin Voyages latest announcement is a hugely welcome one... they will lean heavily on their substantial musical history when it comes to music onboard! This manifests itself in many ways...

Sailors can let loose at The Groupie, Virgin Voyages’ bookable karaoke, gaming and movie lounge. Designed by Roman Coppola, The Groupie was designed as a modernist take on a Japanese-style karaoke room for Sailors to enjoy singing along to their favorite tunes with friends. 

Voyage Vinyl is a record shop aboard Scarlet Lady. Voyage Vinyl will be the go-to spot on board for Sailors to experience music from all eras and genres. Voyage Vinyl features personal listening stations for Sailors to enjoy their favorite albums both current and classic. Sailors looking for something unique can also shop for limited-edition curated albums and special editions of classics. Sailors can also purchase music magazines, headphones and record players.

Voyage Vinyl will also double as a performance spot for live sets mixed by Scarlet Lady’s resident DJs.

Virgin Voyages’ residency program will feature performances by world-class talent on ship, in-port destinations and at The Beach Club at Bimini including already confirmed Mark Ronson! 

Sound like your jam? Definitely sounds like ours... 

DREAM DESTINATIONS? VIRGIN REVEAL MORE ITINERARIES!

February 01, 2019

In an interesting development it seems that stays on Scarlett Lady may be sweet but will be short as Virgin Voyages announced that the itineraries out of Miami will be 4 & 5 night sailings. 

We knew that we would be sailing out of Miami and that Havana would feature but now we can add Costa Maya, Mexico and Puerto Plata, Domincan Republic! All itineraries will include an overnight stay or a late night departure as Virgin want to ensure that you can enjoy the destination day....and night! 

What do you think? Are these dream destinations for you? 

VIRGIN RIP UP & REDESIGN THE STATEROOM AS WE KNOW IT!

February 01, 2019

Virgin Voyages, as we've come to expect at thist stage are looking at staterooms differently! They've deconstructed the existing stateroom and rebuilt it, releasing images today of what their 'standard' staterooms will look like. (Although standard is not a term to use for Virgin Voyages)

The big idea here is the idea that the space is transformable - a bedroom at night but a space to have the crew round to, an area to get looking fabulous in during the day! So, while you head out for the day your room gets itself ready for your return and the bed transforms into a sofa, your bedroom turns into a party space, a make up place - a place to revel or a place to relax! 

Although maximising space the staterooms will minimise enivronmental impact with energy saving features often triggered by you leaving your room - blinds will close, temperature will adjust and the room will go into energy saving mode! 

Virgin have also confirmed that 93% of staterooms will have an ocean view with 86% featuring a balcony (or sea terrace as they put it) complete with hammock! 

LIVE LIKE A ROCKSTAR ON THE HIGH SEAS - VIRGIN REVEAL FIRST SUITE IMAGES!

January 17, 2019

Virgin Voyages have revealed the first images and details surrounding their high end suites onboard Scarlet Lady! There are 78 Rockstar suites in total onboard and within these there are 15 suites named The Massive, The Fab, The Posh and The Gorgeous Suites. These are all located on deck 15 which is a private area with access to Richards Rooftop - a top deck cocktail lounge at the front of the ship! 

While the suites vary of course you can expect music inspired nods, nautically inspired features, touches of brass and leather with all the modern features you might expect...creating what Virgin call a retro-futurism design! You'll have premium product mini bars, turntables, sensor controlled mood lighting, sustainably sourced hammocks, peek-a-boo indoor showers and interestingly peek-a-view outdoor showers! 

Of course you'll be treated like rockstar royalty even before you arrive with private transfers, luggage assistance, private embarkation, anytime boarding and personal rider sheets!! It's all shaping up nicely and goes on sale NEXT MONTH! 

Have you seen enough to get onboard?

GIVE EM THE NEW RAZZLE DAZZLE...RAZZLE DAZZLE THEM...VIRGIN VOYAGES REVEAL EXCITING DINING OPTIONS!

November 08, 2018

These Virgin Voyages shipteases are coming thick and fast and the only place in Ireland to keep up with them is with The Cruise Room!

Last night we had an insight into the dining options on board...everything will be made to order, there will be no buffet, there will be a bar in every restaurant and your cruise fare will include over 20 dining options covering every corner of the cuisine world!

You'll dine wherever you want, wherever you want, however you want. One particular venue that was revealed was Razzle Dazzle complete with the Red Bar where twice a voyage there is a drag brunch takeover where "our 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)".

For Virgin it combines perfectly naughty and nice.. one thing is for sure...it's going to be a cruise experience like no other!

VIRGIN VOYAGES ARE HERE TO STAY WITH A FOURTH SHIP ON THE WAY!

November 01, 2018

Despite being 2 years away from the launch of Scarlett Lady Virgin Voyages have signed an agreement for a 4th ship to be built with famous Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri! 

Scarlett Lady launches 2020 with sisters being launched in 2021 and 2022. The new ship, also a sister of Scarlett Lady will launch in 2023! All ships will carry approx 2770 passengers in 1400 staterooms. They will be well looked after by the crew of approximately 1150!

 

Little else is known at this stage about the new ships but work is well under way! There is no doubt that Virgin Voyages are here to shake up the cruise industry and are here to stay... 

VIRGIN VOYAGES REVEAL ANOTHER FIRST AT SEA - WELCOME TO SQUID INK!

October 23, 2018

We knew before the latest Virgin Voyages 'shiptease' reveal that they would be different to anything else on the seas at the moment. If you needed some confirmaton then the announcement of 'Squid Ink' was it...welcome to the worlds first tattoo parlour at sea! 

Virgin tell us that for generations sailors have believed in the power of tattoos to shield them against the dangers at sea and that tattoos were often used to celebrate certain milestones or reminders of family & loved ones. Now you will have the opportunity to mark your Virgin Voyage with your own tattoo as Virgin have partnered with World Famous Tattoo Ink of NYC with the onboard Squid Ink parlour... 

 

What do you think? Would you like to mark your next cruise with a tattoo?  

FIRST DESTINATION ON MAIDEN VOYAGES REVEALED!

October 31, 2018

This week Virgin Voyages revealed their latest 'Shiptease' and it turned out to be the 1st reveal around destination! Now we know that Scarlett Lady will be cruising out of Miami on Caribbean voyages when she sets sail in 2020 but Richard Branson himself has now revelead that one of the first destinations will be Havana, Cuba! 

According to Virgin this decision is based on customer research and all visits to Havana will be overnight stays meaning you can truly enjoy this vibrant energetic colourful city both day and night! 

Let us know what you think...is Cuba somewhere you'd love to visit? 

SUSTAINABLE SAILING AT SEA - VIRGIN WAGE WAR ON PLASTICS

August 09, 2018

When Virgin Voyages launches in 2020 it intends to do so as the most ocean friendly cruise line at sea. 

Take the Virgin approach to plastics...Virgin's goal is to take the amount of plastic used by a 'traditional ship' and reduce that amount of plastic by at least 50%, while diverting remaining plastics to recycling. So expect not to see single-use plastics like plastic straws, water bottles, stirrers, condiment packs and other unnecessary food packaging. They also plan to provide all sailors with reusable drink bottles and will offer complimentary still and sparkling water throughout the ship! 

With further innovations in purifying waste water and reducing carbon dioxide emissions working with industry leaders to do so...Virgin are determined to lead the way in ethical environmental sailing! Virgin, we salute you!
