Being a Lady in Red on the Scarlet Lady

Updated: Jan 20

"Bright reds - scarlet, pillar-box red, crimson or cherry - are very cheerful and youthful. There is certainly a red for everyone." — Christian Dior 

Ahoy from Virgin Voyages' Scarlet Lady! This morning we arrive at Virgin's resort-like, private beach club at Bimini in the Bahamas, where I booked our own poolside cabana for the day - an elevated way to relax VIP style. It's our last shore day before we head back to Miami and leave behind the endless pleasures aboard the Scarlet Lady. I've been eating delicious food, listening to eclectic live music while I work on my laptop and glance out at the ocean, and enjoying excellent entertainment like a fantastic dance/theater/musical show created and produced by Montreal-based The 7 Fingers. I've done yoga at sunrise, sweated to Zumba, got mind-read by a mentalist, took a World Poker Tour training class, blissed out with a reflexology treatment in the spa, and was a lady in red for our ship-wide Scarlet Night, which was a blast! My friend has kept busy with puzzle contests, holiday arts and crafts-making, and reading her book on quiet decks outside before drifting off to sleep, lolled by the sounds and motions of the sea. We come together at meals and random things we both chose like seahorse derby racing, and we love being cozy in our super-comfortable and spacious Sea Terrace cabin.


Virgin Voyages is an adults-only cruise line, and the vibe here is really cool, friendly, fun, diverse, and cheeky with a kind of effortless sexiness. When we'd pulled onto the pier at Puerto Plata, a Royal Caribbean ship was already docked, and guests on board their ship shouted out, "We want to be on YOUR ship! No kids!!" Virgin is great for groups; we had a wedding on board and some birthday celebrations. I keep thinking of all the friends I'd like to sail with on Virgin and might plan to cruise for my next milestone birthday and invite all of you to join me!


If you're curious about Virgin Voyages, let's chat! I'm converted and love Virgin now, and I'm happy to help you decide if it might be right for you too. Sea you later!
