Inside Virgin Voyages’ new Scarlet Lady cruise ship – which will have drag shows and 20 different restaurants and bars

The ship will have 20 different restaurants and bars on board and is certainly a place for foodies to indulge.


From Italian to Mexican food, there will be something for everyone – and the ship is certainly aimed at younger passengers.

The cruise line company will be putting a “Virgin twist” on the cruises and ditching more traditional dining experiences that guests might expect to find on board, such as huge dining rooms and buffets.

There will also be a lack of formal dinners, set dining times and assigned seats, for a more relaxed holiday for the 2,700 passengers on board.

Passengers can also expect mixology classes and “coffee labs” at the Test Kitchen and a tattoo parlour on board the ship. It certainly screams the word “millennial”.



The Wake restaurant will be 5,886 square feet and will offer up steaks and seafood, as well as cocktail carts and a champagne experience lead by sommeliers.

Head over to the Geonbae restaurant on board the ship, which is a Korean barbecue where guests can cook their dinner themselves on the table.

There will also be Korean drinking games and free soju for the table, a type of spirit that will certainly get passengers feelings merry.

Then there’s the Razzle Dazzle restaurant, which will be the venue for drag-themed brunches.



It will serve up cocktails with names like “Yasss Queen” and the “Razzle Dazzle”, as well as vegetarian and vegan food.

Meat eaters can ask for meat added their dishes – and there are also alcoholic smoothies on offer.

Other restaurants to try out include Extra Virgin, an Italian, Pink Agave, for Mexican food, and Dock, a beach club-style restaurant serving up Mediterranean mezze.



The ship will sail in 2020 in the Caribbean and will sail from Miami to Havana in Cuba.

Sun Online Travel previously headed to Genoa to get the scoop on the new ship.

Sir Richard said: “It's for the young at heart. If you're going on and don't want to have a good time don't come.”

First coming up with the idea of a cruise liner when he was 27, he had initially wanted it to be “a cruise ship for under 30s.”

While there's no upper age limit, but the features speak to a younger crowd, with a state-of-the-art nightclub with "killer DJs", boxing ring, running track and an oversized gaming area with giant jenga and pool tables.

Not too young a crowd though, as none of those aboard will be over 18 because the cruise will operate a strict adults-only policy.
