Scarlet Lady was not only supposed to have its inaugural season in April 2020 but Virgin Voyages as a whole was supposed to have its inauguration during the 2020 season. As we all know, that was delayed due to the pandemic. Personally, I have been chomping at the bit to get on board this ship and I will finally get my chance!
Now that vaccinations are readily available and a good portion of the population has been vaccinated, the CDC has announced it will start allowing cruising to take place as early as this summer. Virgin Voyages has just announced that it will start its summer season with exclusive, limited-time three and four-night voyages from the UK for UK sailors, before bringing Scarlet Lady to her homeport in Miami.
We’re thrilled that Scarlet Lady is making her return to sea this August along the shores that birthed the Virgin brand. She’ll be sailing off the southern coast of England on exclusive, limited-time three and four-night voyages for UK Sailors only.
Afterward, she’ll make her way back to Miami to start exploring the warm waters of the Caribbean with you — turning all the dreams of the past year into a sun-drenched reality.
I am very excited by this news as I was scheduled to sail on Scarlet Lady back in April 2020, then again August 2020, and now have a reservation for November 2021. This has been a long time coming and I’m excited to try this new brand with its innovative way of looking at cruising.
Even though the CDC is easing restrictions, this pandemic has made all businesses look at how to keep people safe while enjoying their time and not feel too restricted. Virgin Voyages has implemented its Voyage Well program to meet these needs.
This means that Virgin Voyages will be utilizing advanced cleaning tools like fogging and UV technology to clean every piece of luggage that is to come on board the ship. Every stateroom and public area will also be fogged prior to Sailors stepping on board. Crew members will also be increasing the availability of hand sanitizing stations to include all public areas.
Join me in November
I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some revenge cruising! I miss being on a ship and how I get pampered when I’m on board. I miss waking up, opening my blackout curtains to a different port every morning, or just relaxing on the balcony while sipping a glass of wine and watching the sea sail past. I miss the parties, the shows, the nonstop entertainment, and the ability to just relax.
If you’re like me and you want to get back on a ship, let’s sail together! Join me on board Scarlet Lady for their 5 night Dominican Daze sailing. Plus, for the month of May, you can get 10% off your sailing, an additional $200 onboard credit and an extra $100 if you pre-purchased a bar tab.
If you’ve never been to the Dominican Republic, the beaches there are some of the most gorgeous beaches, and the people are warm and friendly. Plus, there’s the added bonus of visiting Virgin Voyages private beach club in the Biminis. Plus, if we get a minimum of 10 cabins booked, there will be extras in it for us!
On top of what’s already included On Us — all food at 20+ eateries, crew gratuities, WiFi, basic bevvies, group fitness classes — Sailors in Circles benefit from additional perks, including onboard credit (what we affectionately call “Sailor Loot”) for them to spend on extras like Shore Things, drinks, spa treatments, personal training, and onboard retail.
This is the perfect cruise for adults (no kids, no kidding) looking to get away and relax after a year-long quarantine with kids.
…I’m exhausted just typing that!
