Scarlet Lady

Sail onboard Scarlet Lady in August 2021 on 3 or 4-night staycations at sea departing from Portsmouth. These UK coastal cruises are on sale now so don't miss out!

Designed to entice non-cruisers and first timers to the world of ocean voyaging, Virgin Voyages' Scarlet Lady aims to redefine what it means to be onboard a cruise ship. Not only do Virgin Voyages wish to revolutionise adult-only, luxury cruising in terms of what’s on offer onboard, they also want to set a standard when it comes to the environment, focusing on leaving our seas as clean as possible for future generations to enjoy. From innovative dining options to evening entertainment that will make you feel like you're in Ibiza, you'll fall in love with this exceptional cruise ship the moment you step onboard.

Virgin Voyages do dining onboard their Scarlet Lady cruise ship like no other cruise line. With no buffet, no set dining times and no extra fee for eating onboard, Scarlet Lady provides a truly unique cruise dining experience at each of the 20 dining venues onboard, including:

  • Wake- so named for having a stunning view from the rear of Scarlet Lady, this contemporary venue serves surf and turf steaks along with a portable cocktail cart where your drinks are brought to you.
  • Pink Agave- quality Mexican cuisine that elevates your classic favourites to another level, with themed cocktails to match.
  • The Dock- a relaxed, al fresco space serving Mediterranean finger food such as tapas and mezze.
  • Extra-Virgin- traditional Italian restaurant serving authentic dishes such as handmade pasta, wine/dish matching guides and hourly aperitifs.
  • The Pizza Place- another take on Italian-inspired food where you can pick your toppings and dough to get your perfect pizza made fresh before your eyes.
  • Geonbae- a Korean restaurant where you can barbecue your own steaks at the grills built into the tables.
  • The Galley- an international restaurant where you'll find everything from sushi to burgers to tacos, and more.
  • Razzle Dazzle- a vegan and vegetarian restaurant which even plays host to a bottomless brunch complete with drag performances.

When it comes to evening entertainment onboard Scarlet Lady, expect glamorous live shows, buzzing bars and the Ibiza atmosphere throughout. After a day of relaxation and rejuvenation, the evening takes on a more energetic atmosphere with a focus on letting your hair down and making the most of the ship’s vibrant nightlife.

The headline act has to be the two-storey nightclub with varied DJs playing floor fillers everyone will love to blow off steam to. In addition, in the main theatre venue, the Red Room, Virgin Voyages’ sailors will be mesmerised by no less than six fantastically varied, world class shows. From acrobatic modern interpretations of Romeo and Juliet to adult-themed burlesque, there’s something for every cruiser with Virgin Voyages.

What's more, the show doesn’t stop in the Red Room as small bands of performers pop up on deck during the day, delighting sailors with their playful acts that rip up the fourth wall and throw it overboard! Other top Scarlet Lady venues include:

  • The Dock- in the evening this Mediterranean-inspired al fresco space takes on a more Ibiza-style atmosphere.
  • The Manor- this pumping two-tiered nightclub becomes the centerpiece of your evening thanks to the dancefloor-filling DJs playing top hits until the early hours.
  • Richard’s Rooftop- exclusively for sailors staying in a Rockstar or Mega Rockstar suite, this al fresco lounge area has a bar for your favourite drinks and experimental furniture features.

When it comes to how you spend your time onboard Scarlet Lady between ports, Virgin Voyages again have a philosophy like no other cruise line. Their style sees you not need a break from your break, aiming at relaxing and rejuvenating you from the stresses of life back home. As a result, your time onboard Scarlet Lady is divided into either detoxing - clearing your mind, body and soul of the weights you carry before stepping onboard - and retoxing, to fill you with a new purpose and feeling of energy.

Christened the ‘Vitamin Sea’ concept, examples of how you can spend your day achieving this perfect equilibrium include:

  • Top Dec- a full circle view right from the top of Scarlet Lady where sailors sunbathe in isolation during the day or partake in yoga sessions at dawn and dusk.
  • Athletic Club- outdoor training area with boxing bags, free weights, gymnastic stations and epic views between reps.
  • B-Complex- indoor fitness complex for sessions such as spinning classes, core and cardio and yoga with a theme of burn, build, bike and balance for a well-rounded workout.
  • Redemption- as well as a plunge pool and saunas, this underwater cave theme boasts mud rooms, salt rooms, hydrotherapy pools and a number of spa treatments for the in-depth spa experience at sea.
  • Well-Being Pool- the main outdoor pool and lively social hub during the day, along with California beach style workout stations.
  • Stubble and Groom- hipster-style barber shop.
  • Squid Ink- a tattoo parlour at sea.
