Virgin Voyages have announced a total of 20-plus food choices onboard their first ship, Scarlet Lady.
The company have scrapped the traditional up-charges levied when dining in speciality restaurants at sea and Virgin Voyages have designed all eateries on board to offer made-to-order eats and opted to include all restaurant food in the voyage fare.
And Virgin Voyages will offer sailors a uniquely elevated and boutique Adult-by-Design experience for the 18-plus traveller.
It also aims to be one of the cleanest fleets at sea, with a ban on single-use plastics and no buffets on board and the company believe this will significantly reduce waste. They plan to reinvest savings into clean technology and quality product.
The Scarlet Lady is designed to reflect a yacht’s sleek luxury and will sail from PortMiami for the 2020 season with 2,770 sailors and 1,160 crew to the Caribbean. She will also be the newest ship sailing to Havana on select voyages.
Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, said: “There is a Virgin twist on everything you’ll see aboard the Scarlet Lady, which means there will be no stuffy formalities, boring buffets and no main dining rooms.
“Sailors are not going to want to leave our ship after they experience how we’ve designed our restaurants and tasted the dishes we are going to be serving up in 2020.”
