Virgin Voyages have released cabin designs for their first ship, the Scarlet Lady when she debuts from Miami in early 2020.
Virgin said that 93 percent of staterooms onboard the 2,770 guest ship will feature an ocean view, with 86 percent featuring a Sea Terrace. Also stated was that the sea will be the star of the cabins with an exclusive patent-pending cabin layout designed by PearsonLloyd in partnership with Virgin Voyages’ Design team.
“We didn’t want to create the same old box of a bedroom that our Sailors would only use to lay their head down at night, we wanted to reshape the entire cabin experience,” said Dee Cooper, senior vice president of design for Virgin Voyages. “Whether it’s sleeping, socializing or stargazing they desire, our cabins will transform to match our Sailors’ whims. Stylish yet somehow still informal, these cabins change the face of modern sea travel.”
The cabins onboard have been custom-created to accommodate the Seabed, the first-ever transformational cabin bed at sea and has been specially engineered and handcrafted by Walter Knoll in Germany.
“The concept of the Seabed came from the convivial nature of cruising and gives Sailors more space for social gatherings in the cabin– and eliminates the unspoken awkwardness of inviting new friends over with no place for them to sit but on the bed. Instead, Virgin Voyages Sailors can enjoy their cabin in two distinct ways as a place to revel or a place to relax,” Virgin said.
Virgin Voyages are set to be on sale from the 14th February 2019 and for more information please call our cruise experts on 03331 224466 or visit or website www.sovereigncruise.co.uk
