If you’ve been following the developments of Virgin Voyages over the past year, you’ll know that it’s the new lifestyle brand set to disrupt the cruise industry. I can now reveal that Virgin Voyages has released the designs and images of some of their RockStar Suites planned for Scarlet Lady that promises to bring Rebellious Luxe to life at sea.
Suites Available on Scarlet Lady
Virgin Voyages will have two main categories of suites on Scarlet Lady:
Mega RockStar Suites (15 suites onboard, Deck 15)
RockStar Suites (63 suites onboard)
Within these suite categories, there are several grades of suites all designed to make you feel like a rock star on your cruise.
Mega RockStar Suite: Massive Suite
The aptly named, Massive Suite, is the top suite aboard Scarlet Lady. It includes its very own guitar-clad music room, views of the ocean from every corner of the suite, and a massive terrace complete with its own Peek-a-View outdoor shower, hot tub, hammocks and a runway outdoor dining table, where a staircase will help Sailors make their way on top of the table for dancing. Hmmm, I wondered where they got that idea from…
“Virgin has always avoided stuffy formalities and brought a lot of excitement and a bit of rebelliousness to our customer experiences,” said Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group. “With these glamorous suites, Virgin Voyages is bringing rock and roll to the high seas and spoiling our Sailors like the rock stars they are.”
There will be just two Massive Suites aboard Scarlet Lady, with each suite sitting atop the ship’s bridge. These 2,147 square foot suites are a place that legends dream of– each with its very own music room, which seconds as an extra bedroom that is stocked with guitars and an amplifier. At the center of the Massive Suite is a circular over-sized couch set up, perfect for conversation and a cocktails from the suite’s adjacent in-room bar.
Rock stars staying in a Massive Suite will be able to enjoy a glamorous bath and dressing room area complete with a hot tub, vanity area, two full-sized wardrobes and a marble-clad bathroom with a Peek-a-View shower area that overlooks the bedroom and out to the ocean.
The Massive Suite’s larger-than-life terrace will be where friends, family and groupies alike can enjoy 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.
Mega RockStar Suite: Fab Suite
There will be two Fab Suites onboard Scarlet Lady. An open wall separates the space in these suites into bedroom and living areas. The living area features room for friends, with a sofa that converts to sleep two, an extra half bathroom and an entertainment credenza (sideboard/cupboard). The suite’s bedroom area features a large wardrobe for extra closet space, while sunning on the terrace is encouraged with a Peek-a-View outdoor shower, stargazing loungers, a sofa, a terrace hammock and champagne table. At 950 sq. ft, it will sleep up to four sailors.
Mega RockStar Suite: Posh Suite
There will be two Posh Suites on Scarlet Lady. This grade of suite can sleep up to four sailors with separate living and bedroom areas. Some suite highlights include a convertible sofa, an extra half bath and a terrace with a Peek-a-View outdoor shower, stargazing loungers, a sofa, a terrace hammock and champagne table. The Posh Suite will be 833 sq. ft.
Mega RockStar Suite: Gorgeous Suite
On Scarlet Lady, there will be 9 Gorgeous Suites, which will feature an open floor plan with a distinct lounge and bedroom areas, plus a luxurious marble bathroom with Peek-a-Boo shower window, and an expansive terrace with a Peek-a-View outdoor shower and more. The smallest of the Mega RockStar Suites at 570 sq. ft. but will still be able to sleep up to four sailors.
RockStar Suites: Brilliant Suite
A ‘brilliantly’ designed suite with an open floor plan. With all of the action facing the sea, this suite features an in-room fully stocked bar, a large convertible sofa, an in-room glam brass vanity station, a Peek-a-Boo shower window, terrace sun chairs and more. The Brilliant Suite will be 481.7 sq. ft and sleep up to four sailors.
RockStar Suites: Cheek Corner Suite
The Cheeky Corner Suite will accommodate two sailors and come in three sizes (Biggest terrace, Even Bigger Terrace and Pretty Big Terrace). Virgin Voyages believes that it will be the perfect suite for those looking to enjoy sunrise yoga on their expansive terrace. I think breakfast on the terrace will also be pretty awesome.
This suite, situated at the back of the ship, will feature an open bedroom overlooking the wake (I love a wake view!) with a large wardrobe for extra space, corner sofa and an in-room glam brass vanity station
RockStar Suites: Seriously Suite
There will be 24 Seriously Suites onboard Scarlet Lady that will feature a fully stocked bar, a plush European king bed, a Peek-a-Boo shower window, and terrace hammock.
RockStar Suites: Sweet Aft Suite
This has to win the prize for the best-named suite! The Sweet Aft Suites will come in three sizes like the Cheeky Corner Suite (Biggest terrace, Even Bigger Terrace and Pretty Big Terrace). These suites will be positioned centrally at the aft of the ship and will offer the most-Instagrammable wake view directly from the bed or even from inside the shower.
RockStar Suites Sailors will live their best lives all taken care of by the RockStar Services Crew, from time of booking, to sail away and throughout their voyage.
There will be backstage access for RockStar Suites Sailors at every corner, with early access to onboard entertainment, restaurants, Shore Things, a private transfer to and from the ship in Miami and an exclusive express VIP pathway to the ship during embarkation.
RockStar Suites Sailors will have their very own wardrobe team to help unpack and repack, complimentary pressing service and nightly express swimsuit drying service– because no Rockstar should ever have a wet bottom.
In Rebellious Luxe fashion, Virgin Voyages has re-imagined the mini-bar for its rock stars, instead, suites will have a full bar and cocktail kit fit for a rock star, with the first round on the house.
All RockStar Suites Sailors will have access to Richard’s Rooftop, their very own private members club – a secluded place for them to bask under the sun or have a drink under the stars.
All suites are clever cabins, with mood lighting that automatically adjusts to match the time of day and in room tablets that allow sailors to adjust the room’s lighting.
Sailors will enjoy luxurious comforts like premium linens and a plush king bed in every suite as well as upgraded bath amenities for pampering.
