Virgin Voyages has started taking reservations to sail on its premier ship, the Scarlet Lady, scheduled to launch in April 1st 2020 from the port of Miami. For the most impatient and curious travellers the company announced two sneak-a-peek sailings before the ship’s maiden voyage.

The short trips will run from March 26 to March 29 and March 29 to April 1. Passengers on these cruises will get a ‘selected highlights version’ of the full Virgin Voyages experience including a day at the Beach Club at Bimini, a Scarlet Night Party, access to all restaurants and complete versions of entertainment offered on board. The price for the trip starts from £845 per person including gratitude.

Typically, short preview cruises like the Sneak-a-Peek voyages are open to only media and selected travel partners. Virgin’s decision to offer these pre-inaugural sailings to the general public is a relatively new concept.

Virgin Voyages, the firsts an adult-only cruise line, has been releasing details in the lead-up to Scarlet Lady’s maiden voyage all year long, most recently announcing on-demand champagne delivery and a signature craft beer onboard, unveiling several pieces from its new crew uniform collection designed by British fashion icon Gareth Pugh and promising celebrity-guest appearances during the maiden voyage.
