Virgin Voyages reveals Caribbean itineraries

Scarlet Lady’s much-anticipated inaugural season will take in Costa Maya in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Cuba.

Virgin Voyages has revealed it will sail itineraries from Miami to Mexico and the Dominican Republic as part of its very first season in 2020.

The new adults-only cruise line had already announced that it would feature Cuba as part of its first season in the Caribbean.

Its first ship, Scarlet Lady, will be sailing four-night and five-night itineraries under the title Havana After Dark, which include an overnight stay in the Cuban capital, as well as five-night voyages to Costa Maya in Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

“We set out on an adventure to find overnight destinations that have a combination of opportunities for high-energy exploration and places for relaxation, as the perfect complement to our Virgin Voyages experience,” Diana Block Garcia, vice president for itinerary and destination development at Virgin Voyages, reveals.

“We have composed itineraries that have a sense of palpable culture and history and above all induce that carefree feeling that you only get while on holiday.”

Hammock on the balcony
Virgin has also presented more details about its cabins, with 93% of them offering an ocean view and 86% featuring a terrace which includes a “hand-woven” hammock.

They will also feature the Seabed, designed by Germany’s Walter Knoll – a full-sized bed that folds into a lounger. The company claims that this will make it easier for people to entertain in their cabins.

Bookings for Scarlet Lady’s inaugural 2020 season will open on Valentine’s Day, February 14. More details about onshore experiences, to be known as Shore Things, will be given later this year.
