Re-shaping cabins at sea
The Scarlet Lady’s sleeping quarters are a cut above. Cabins are designed not just to be a cosy bolt-hole with a porthole, but a space where you can truly relax and unwind.
At Virgin Voyages, they’ve thought about every little detail in their luxury cabins. A Scarlet Lady voyage is the treat of a lifetime, so you can be sure it’s amazing from the second you wake up to the second you go to bed.
Choose from several cabin categories across 1,330 rooms that include sea travel suites. Give yourself plenty of room with an XL Sea Terrace cabin, stare across the waves with a Sea View cabin, find your own little special space with an Insider cabin, or team up on your travels with three mates and book a Social Insider cabin.
Nine out of 10 of the luxury cabins have an ocean view, and most of them include a Sea Terrace, so you can soak up those incredible Caribbean sunsets from the comfort of your cabin.
A seabed that gives you more room
Forget the traditional layout of cruise ship cabins – Virgin Voyages have changed the game on that one too. Instead of fixed beds, they’ve developed transformational cabin beds: a luxury cruise interior first. Relaxing doesn’t always mean sleeping, so the Seabed transforms to give you the space to entertain, do some early morning push-ups, or dance like nobody’s watching. Add in sensory lighting, a 43” 4+ flat-screen HD TV, a minibar, vanity areas and bathrooms with a rain shower, and you’ve got cruise ship cabins you’ll probably want to move into permanently.
The ultimate ship suite: it's Rock 'n' Roll, baby!
Live life like a rock star in the (appropriately named) RockStar voyage ship suites. Onboard the Scarlet Lady are 78 of the most insanely glamorous suites on the high seas, and every single one is different. Retro chic furniture mixes with futurism décor, and strangely enough, it really works! Legendary designer Tom Dixon has put his own unique flourishes into each room, always challenging but never straying too far from that Rock Star brief. From lavish marble bathrooms to plush velvet cushions, no expense has been spared to make you feel like an A-lister.
Want to go all out? 15 of the suites make up the top tier Mega Rockstar Suites. If you want to feel like David Bowie or Adele on tour, book a Scarlet Lady voyage in the Massive, Posh, Fab or Gorgeous suites. Massive lives up to its name – it’s the ‘penthouse’ suite of the ship with its own private terrace, hot tub, and music room. This is a suite fit for true rock and roll royalty.
It’s big, it’s beautiful, it certainly lives up to its name – the Massive Suite is, well, massive! This is a top-of-the-range luxury cruise cabin, and as cruise ship suites go, this one’s a doozy. Sitting right at the front of the ship for those uninterrupted sunset views, it’s tricked out so you’ve got everything you need if you’re rock & roll royalty, right down to the private music room, personal terrace, hot tub and open-air Peak-a-View shower
The Scarlet Lady’s nautical theme continues into the suite, so expect plenty of brass knobs and leather, but you’ve also got 850 square feet of space over three rooms, a private lookout point, a bathroom that’s wall-to-wall marble, and even a hammock. The Massive Suite sleeps up to four people in complete comfort. Scarlet Lady cabins don’t come much better than this.
Are you the host or hostess with the mostess? Then the Fab Suite’s perfect for you. Serve up killer negronis from your very own in-room bar or take your guests out onto your private terrace and watch the sunset. The Scarlet Lady decor features a bit of a nautical theme, and that’s the case with the Fab Suite too, with lots of brass fittings and decorative features that remind you of life on the ocean waves.
Start the day with a yoga session on the terrace and finish it with a glass of bubbly under the stars. Freshen up in the Peek-a-View shower (if you’ve never experienced showering outdoors before, it’s amazing) or chill in the suite and listen to the vinyl record player – so retro, so sophisticated. This spacious 689 sq. ft suite sleeps four people and has a 261 sq. ft terrace.
No, not one of the Spice Girls, but this suite would certainly be posh enough for Victoria and David. Totally glam, utterly bling, and seriously sophisticated, this is the suite for the Instagram generation. You’ll feel like proper A-listers in this 572 sq. ft suite with its own 261 sq. ft terrace. Start the morning in one of two showers (try the Peek-a-View if you’ve never showered outdoors before) and limber up for the day with a yoga session, before heading off and exploring everything that the Scarlet Lady has to offer.
Cruise ship cabins should be all about maxed-out comfort and style, and the Posh Suite has that in bucketloads. Chillax on a sun lounger with your champagne flute sitting on the appropriately-named champagne bucket style table or mix up a mojito from your very own and generously stocked in-room bar. The Posh Suite sleeps up to four in luxurious comfort.
The Gorgeous Suite is exactly as its name implies – utterly gorgeous. Fabulous views from the private terrace are the perfect way to start the day with a sunrise yoga session, followed by the heavenly experience of an outside soak in your very own Peek-a-View shower. Head into the 396 sq. ft suite and grab some breakfast, or wait until the sun is over the yardarm for the first cocktail of the afternoon from your own in-room bar.
All Scarlet Lady cabins are designed with that wow-factor, but the Gorgeous suite takes it to a different level, showing off Tom Dixon’s designs. Your bathroom is floor-to-ceiling marble with a dichroic glass window, while you can let the motion of the ocean lull you into a state of zen-like relaxation in your very own deck hammock, or from the comfort of a massive European king bed. The Gorgeous suite sleeps up to four people.
Unleash your inner rocker in the Brilliant suite, thanks to its retro record player, top quality selection of tunes, its own well-stocked bar, and a 174 sq. ft terrace where you can hold your own private after-show party. Whatever you want on your rider, you’ve got it, whether that’s a bowl of red M&Ms or a penguin (and we’re not talking chocolate biscuits here).
The Brilliant suite picks up on the Scarlet Lady’s nautical theme with brass fittings throughout, as well as extra luxurious touches like the champagne bucket table on the terrace, a Peek-a-Boo shower and a super-comfy European King bed. Make the most of the Rockstar life by cranking up the music and partying under the stars all night on the private terrace. The Brilliant suite sleeps four rock gods and goddesses in lavish style.
How serious are you about living life to the max? The Seriously Suite is everything you need for a rock & roll cruise onboard the Scarlet Lady. This cosy suite is designed for two people, so it’s intimate, luxurious, and ideal for that rockin’ voyage where the champagne corks just keep on poppin’.
On the private terrace you’ve got your very own hammock, champagne bucket table, and insanely awesome ocean views. Inside you’ve got your own bar, a Peek-a-Boo shower, and every Rockstar’s must-have, a retro record player and a selection of banging tunes. Start the day with some self-care yoga on the terrace, and finish it gazing up at the stars with your favourite hits playing in the background. Sounds seriously sweet to us.
