Leave the Kids at Home: Virgin to Launch Adults-Only Cruise Ship

News Staff

Virgin Voyages is the latest travel-related company in Sir Richard Branson’s empire. The inaugural boat, the “Scarlet Lady,” will be an adults-only cruise line sailing from Miami to the Caribbean in 2020. Future itineraries will include trips to Cuba. Amenities on board were designed with the 18+ traveler in mind. A tattoo parlor, mani-pedi spa, nightclub and group fitness classes are just some of the offerings.

Guests can choose from 20+ intimate eateries on board with all restaurants included within the voyage fare.

The Massive Suite’s larger-than-life terrace contains a private hot tub, a Peek-a-View outdoor shower, a circular conversation pit, a lookout point with stargazing loungers and two full-length hammocks.
