In conjunction with Scarlet Lady's opening bookings for sale, Virgin Voyages revealed that its first cruise ship will feature stops at The Beach Club private experience in Bimini, Bahamas. The line's destination allows passengers the chance to enjoy the blue waters and culture of Bimini as well as entertainment from a rotating cast of DJs due to be led by Grammy-winning DJ Mark Ronson.
Virgin Voyages' Beach Club will have complimentary, thoughtfully sourced food. The locally inspired menus will serve up island favorites like banana leaf-wrapped queen snapper, conch and mango salad, and Bahamian rum cake. As Sailors explore the club they will discover 6 bars and creative social spaces featuring hammock groves. They can also enjoy the beach loungers, or opt for a private place to cuddle up, with poolside and beach-side cabanas available for rent. There will also be active areas for beach play and watersports. On the private island, RockStar Suite passengers benefit from complimentary food service, exclusive bar and outdoor terrace lounge, VIP beach cabanas. The 7-mile (11-km) long island offers as activities boating, snorkeling, wreck diving. The partially sunk wreck of SS Sapona (concrete-hulled steamship that ran aground in 1926) is located just a few miles off island's southern coast.
To complete Virgin Voyages experience Scarlet Lady is leaning on entertainment at sea. Aside from musical performances, tattoo parlors, and test kitchens, interactive immersive experiences are due to play a prominent role, such as a yet to be announced show from the producer of NYC’s famed show “Sleep No More.”
To accommodate the variety of entertainment opportunities Virgin created The Red Room. It was designed by theatre consultants Auerbach Pollock Friedlander and renowned architects WorkAC as the first ever transformational multi-form theatre at sea. The Red Room transforms into 4 different configurations: an alley stage used in fashion shows, a traditional Proscenium stage, a dance flat-floor configuration, and a unique reverse stage setup. The first at-sea theatre will enable the cruise line to create different experiences for each day of the cruise. Scarlet Lady will offer 6 original shows that include production by Randy Weiner (The Donkey Show, Queen of the Night, Sleep No More).
