Virgin Voyages’ first ship Scarlet Lady will call at Dover and Liverpool before homeporting in Miami next year.

The 2,700-passenger ship will sail from Genoa where it is being built before arriving in the UK in late February.

Agents – known as First Mates by the line – will join media and VIPs at several exclusive events on Scarlet Lady before the vessel sails to Miami.

The news was part of an announcement made by former Spice Girl Geri Horner at a press conference in central London today (May 21).

It comes as Virgin Voyages also revealed it was expanding its partnership with music producer and DJ Mark Ronson.

The British artist has joined the Virgin Voyages’ Creative Collective – a group of artists and designers which has collaborated with the line.

Ronson will create a series of pre-voyage and onboard playlists for passengers, as well as curating the vinyl record selection in the ship’s RockStar Suites and the onboard music shop called Voyage Vinyl.

Ronson is also scheduled to play four times at The Beach Club, Virgin Voyages’ private beach in the Bahamas, starting on July 9, 2020.

“Sir Richard Branson and the Virgin brand were legendary game-changers in the music industry and it’s a thrill to join them as they bring that same spirit to sea travel,” Ronson said.

DJ and record producer Diplo will also perform at The Beach Club next year.
