Virgin Voyages has officially opened their sailings for bookings (for pre-sale deposit holders, they will open to the general public on February 14) and the new adults only cruise line has announced what will be included in cruise fares.
Virgin Voyages’ first cruise ship, Scarlet Lady, will begin sailing to the Caribbean from PortMiami in April 2020. The cruise ship will sail four and five night cruises to Cuba and the Western Caribbean. Since there will be no nickel and diming on board, here is what will be included in cruise fares on this new cruise line.
Gratuities or tips, whichever you like to call them, will be included in the price of your cruise. This means that your onboard account will not be charged a daily service fee.
Unlimited WiFi will come at no extra charge. For those who want the ability to stream, you will be able to upgrade to a premium plan.
There will be 20+ places to eat onboard Scarlet Lady and every single one of them is included in your cruise fare. The following is just a few of the restaurants that will be on the cruise ship:
- The Wake – steak and seafood
- Pick Agave – upscale Mexican
- Razzle Dazzle – vegetarian
- The Test Kitchen – cooking lab and restaurant
- Gunbae – Korean BBQ
- Extra Virgin – Italian
- The Galley – food hall
- The Dock – Mezze Lounge
A few of the restaurants will be open 24 hours a day.
All fitness classes are also included and will come at no extra charge.
Basic beverages such as teas and sodas will also be included.
Reservations are now open to those who put down a pre-sale deposit. Bookings will open to the general public on February 14, 2019. Sailings from April through October 2020 have been released.
On February 14, the cruise line will also reveal more details relating to the ship’s onboard experience as well as an additional destination to be featured on all voyages. What will this destination be? We’ll all find out on Valentine’s Day.
Details about on-shore experiences offered by Virgin Voyages, or Shore Things as they refer to them, will be released in late 2019.
