Why the answer 'No' can be a good thing on Virgin Voyages

Written By:

October 2, 2019

As we get closer to the launch of Scarlet Lady, the first ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet, due in the Spring of 2020, I have been thinking about just some of the questions that sailors (also known as passengers) might ask crew members when they get onboard on one of the first 2020/21 Scarlet Lady Itineraries. Often when you ask a question, you like to hear the answer ‘yes’, however on a Virgin Voyage it can be great to hear the answer ‘no’. To prove a point, I have listed some of the questions cruise ship passengers often ask, and you might be surprised at some of the answers.

Click on the following link to see my ‘Before & After’ photos of what Scarlet Lady looked like mid-construction, and what she should look like when she enters service. For more information or to book your cruise on Scarlet Lady call GoCruise with Ian on 08002922850 or 01455821770. Further down the page you can watch a short video I made onboard Scarlet Lady in February 2019 when I visited her mid-construction in the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa.
