  1. They start at $725 from what I can see. That's $225 more than what you're paying. Pay for WiFi, Specialty Dinners, Soft Drinks and Gratuities and you're easily spending $225 for those 4 nights. For 5 nights they're starting at $825. $325 more than what you're paying. There you might be able to save money vs. VV, but you'll still come close if you pay for WiFi, Specialty Dinners, Soft Drinks and Gratuities. It's really easy to spend $300+ in 5 nights on the same things that are included with VV. 3 Specialty meals alone can run $300 for 2 people.
  2. A meal with Drag Queens. Usually involving performances and oftentimes audience participation. The Queens usually wander around and perform among the diners. Scarlet Lady is featuring Drag Queens onboard the ship with a Drag Brunch and Dinner. A few of the Queens have great Instagram accounts you can follow along.
  3. On YouTube CruiseForSolos posted a series of short videos of the cabins and the solo cabin is one of them. Much larger than I expected. Looks like Virgin is taking good care of solo travelers.
  4. Yeah we just booked on Mardi Gras for 2021 and I don't believe she has an indoor pool area. The rest of it looks great, but that is something we love on the other lines.
  5. That's why we like Celebrity / Princess / Royal indoor pools/solariums. No upcharge. For Princess the Spa Pool isn't even an upcharge, though it's an outdoor pool on most ships.
  6. Here are the four links for anyone in NYC who wants to make dinner reservations for March 7th on board Scarlet Lady. Links were posted on their LinkedIn feed.

  7. From multiple sources onboard the ship in Dover, Virgin Voyages is completely mum on the Captain. Odd since that person is the Master of the Ship. This is a press tour, first ship, new cruise line, the Captain and the Bridge should be a part of any press tour. I know they're disappointed they couldn't steal some thunder from Celebrity and Captain Kate, but no matter, they should be introducing the captain of their first cruise line. Hiding that person doesn't speak highly of their regard for the Captain.
  8. t That's been our only concern since we saw the original 3D renderings, especially for a Caribbean based ship. We would have expected the main pool to be much larger to allow swimming in the morning and probably a lounging ledge the rest of the day (where the loungers are in the water) Also would have expected a true indoor solarium pool area which could have been a really sweet indoor pool / bar area that turned into a late night pool / bar / dance area at night. We'll have to wait and see how this works out but I do agree at first glance, they really didn't think through the water areas based on my previous cruises in the Caribbean. The pools get a LOT of use during the day, even when the ship is in port.
  9. I didn't look at the deck plan, I thought it was closer to aft. So it's midship.
  10. From the rendering. It's right in front of the stacks. I think it's called the "Well Being Pool"
  11. The bar pool, you can't swim but you can lounge in it. It's near the aft,
  12. Wow that's fun. Whoever goes, please take pictures and videos to share!
  13. Thank you so much for this. Here's another good one: https://www.instagram.com/chefsilvana/ A really diverse set of chefs vs. the other cruise lines.
  14. That has been the one area we've wondered about since we saw the original renderings. The pool is small and it looks like they expect folks to hang out at the rear bar pool. The one thing we wish they had was a solarium / indoor pool which is great for the caribbean but the rest of the ship really intrigues us.
  15. I'm going to guess there will be a corkage fee as with all other cruise lines. I'll see if my friend is still onboard in Dover to ask that question.
