Virgin Voyages, the new adults only cruise line from business mogul Richard Branson, has released three new videos showing more features of their first cruise ship, Scarlet Lady.
This first video gives a better look at the outside of the cruise ship. The outdoor decks are lined with cabanas and plenty of chairs, perfect for taking in the view as you cruise the Caribbean.
This video gives us a look at one of the pools onboard that has two hot tubs at the Gym & Tonic bar.
A video giving us an inside look at the Redemption Spa onboard the cruise ship. This area looks like a great place to unwind and relax.
Virgin Voyages also announced that their three cruise ships will be free of single use plastics that include straws, water bottles, stirrers, and condiment packs. They posted the following message on their website this past week when they made the announced about plastics:
“We have committed to vastly decreasing plastic usage and increasing reusable and recyclable materials on all of our ships.
If operated like a traditional ship, we estimate that each vessel would generate 300 tons of disposable plastic per year. Our goal is to reduce that amount of plastic by at least 50%, and divert remaining plastics to recycling.
That means eliminating single-use plastics across a whole range of products sailors will use like plastic straws, water bottles, stirrers, condiment packs and other unnecessary food packaging. We also plan to provide all sailors with reusable drink bottles, and will offer complimentary still and sparkling water throughout the ship. Bye, bye plastic water bottles.”
Scarlet Lady is scheduled to debut in 2020 and will sail cruises to the Caribbean out of the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami. Exact itineraries and cruise lengths will be announced at a later time. Cruise Fever will have the latest when these details are announced.
