Virgin Voyages will debut in 2020 and sail four and five night cruises to the Caribbean. This new adults only cruise line has released cabin renderings of their first ship, Scarlet Lady. The cruise ship will feature the first transformational cabin beds at sea, single cabins for solo travelers, and 86% of cabins will have a balcony.
While at sea, sailors can enjoy all of the action of the Scarlet Lady and retreat to their private hideaway overlooking the ocean with 93 percent of cabins offering an ocean view and 86 percent featuring a Sea Terrace. The sea will be the headlining star of the cabins aboard the Scarlet Lady with Virgin Voyages’ exclusive patent pending cabin layout designed by PearsonLloyd with Virgin Voyages’ Design team, which uses intelligent architecture to optimize space and views of the ocean.
The cabin is custom-created to accommodate the Seabed, the first-ever transformational cabin bed at sea, specially engineered and handcrafted by Walter Knoll in Germany. The concept of the Seabed came from the convivial nature of cruising, and gives Sailors more space for social gatherings in the cabin– and eliminates the unspoken awkwardness of inviting new friends over with no place for them to sit but on the bed. Instead, Virgin Voyages Sailors can enjoy their cabin in two distinct ways as a place to revel or a place to relax.
With clever cabin lighting, the mood lighting will automatically adjust to enhance the time of day based on where the ship is in the world, reflecting the blue seas and the gold to purple sunsets of the Caribbean waters. The cabins will feature PIR presence sensors that automatically detect when someone has left the cabin and go into energy saver mode, where blinds will close and air conditioning will adjust to an eco-saver temperature, conserving energy to support the company’s commitment to operate one of the cleanest fleets at sea.
With thoroughly thought through design, Virgin Voyages deliberately chose to use top quality materiality throughout the cabins, like a saddle leather chair, complete with with refined stitch detail. Most standard cabins will have transitional Seabeds, in-room entertainment with 43″ + 4K flat-screen HDTVs, mini bars, glam areas and flexible wardrobes. All cabins were engineered to optimize bathroom space featuring rain shower heads for a spa-like wash.
All terraces aboard Scarlet Lady will feature custom-designed hammocks, handwoven by artisans from Yellow Leaf a social enterprise that fosters women’s empowerment and community transformation in rural Thailand.
With several cabin categories to choose from, there are 1,330 cabins aboard the Scarlet Lady and 78 RockStar Suites. Every sailor wishing to voyage aboard the Scarlet Lady can find their special hideaway with roomy XL Sea Terrace cabins, Sea Terrace cabins Sea View cabins, Insider cabins, Social Insider cabins that sleep up to four in a chalet-style bunk, and Solo Insider cabins designed and priced exclusively for the solo traveler.
