Along with the opening of bookings to the general public today, Virgin Voyages also announced details of their onboard entertainment program and exclusive island experience on all itineraries.
Previously identified as the “secret location” on initial itineraries, Virgin Voyages has confirmed that they will be stopping in Bimini in the Bahamas on each voyage.
Exclusive Bimini Destination
The Beach Club at Bimini will provide an exclusive experience that will be featured on all Scarlet Lady sailing where sailors can enjoy an epic beach day and/or explore the island flavor and culture of Bimini and its turquoise blue waters.
Just a short transfer from the pier, and built in partnership with Resorts World Bimini, The Beach Club at Bimini is designed with Miami-based architects EOA, Inc. featuring natural materials and soft earth tones that organically blend into the seascape. The Beach Club will overlook the ocean and cascade down to the sea with an expansive lagoon-style pool as the central anchor of the club.
The Beach Club at Bimini, will also have complimentary food that is thoughtfully sourced. Its locally inspired menus will serve up island favorites such as conch and mango salad, banana leaf-wrapped queen snapper, Bahamian rum cake and more. As Sailors start to explore the club they will be pleased to discover creative social spaces with hammock groves and six bars where Sailors can congregate in groups of friends. Those looking for a home base for the day can enjoy the many beach loungers or opt for a more private place to cuddle up with both beach side and poolside cabanas available for rent. The Beach Club will also feature active areas for watersports and beach play.
Sailors in Rock Star Suites will have their exclusive slice of paradise at The Beach Club at Bimini, with a dedicated bar, complimentary food service, an outdoor terrace lounge, sun loungers and beach cabanas.
Onboard the Scarlet Lady, Sailors will experience six original shows that include a soon to be announced production by award-winning producer Randy Weiner (Queen of the Night, The Donkey Show, Sleep No More).
- Phantom Folktales – A collection of song driven, micro plays throughout the ship, that seemingly appear out of thin air, and disappear just as quickly, created by PigPen Theatre Co.
- Ships in the Night – An emotion-filled contemporary experience telling its story through the use of cutting-edge digital projection interwoven with the authenticity of the human condition, and Duel Reality examines the age-old tale of Romeo & Juliet with a modern twist featuring acrobatic storytelling. Both performances were made possible through our collaboration with the innovative circus company, The 7 Fingers.
- Never Sleep Alone – A participatory show featuring the hysterically funny, straight-talking relationship therapist, Dr. Alex Shiller, by producers Roslyn Hart and Alfredo Guenzani.
To accommodate its variety of entertainment opportunities Virgin Voyages created The Red Room– designed by renowned architects WorkAC and theater consultants Auerbach Pollock Friedlander as the first transformational multi-form theater at sea. It will transform into four different configurations – including traditional Proscenium stage, to alley stage used in fashion shows, to a dance flat-floor configuration and finally a unique reverse stage setup.
