A Relaxing Cruise by md90

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Scarlet Lady

I did not know what to expect on my first adults only cruise and was willing to see what the changes to the dining were. I thought it was a very relaxing 5 night cruise, loved the inclusiveness of the cruise fare, Specialty dining, WI-FI, non-alcoholic beverages included, but thought hot chocolate should’ve been included also. I can accept paying extra for all alcoholic beverages since everybody doesn’t drink alcohol. Food was great at every dining venue, so too were the drinks. I enjoyed brunch and High Tea. Beautiful ship, very good entertainment, I thought the music selections by this DJ were great unlike those on the other cruise lines, small pool and hot tub, but all in all, I love the experience, even more so that capacity was capped at 50% and everyone onboard was fully vaccinated. I will be back on another Virgin cruise.

Chill vibe, fantastic food by sandpiper1743

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Scarlet Lady

We really loved the ship and the crew. The XL sea terrace was excellent and the entertainment was great. They need more activities but maybe when the ship is fuller they’ll add more.

An Impressive Start by yensidtlaw1976

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Scarlet Lady

Although there are some hiccups Virgin is a welcome refresh to the standard cruising experience. Many of the things that ruin cruises are not present here. No upcharge restaurants, no tipping (no kidding!), no photo packages, free wifi for the average user, no dress codes, "just drop by" muster drill, simplified processes and experiences. It's easier to stress less and enjoy it more. It's just a great time with no kids and offers amazing food, drink and amazing service. If all that doesn't sell you then I'll say I already booked another one in five months and I can't wait.

Virgin is Spectacular by FrizzyAnya

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Scarlet Lady

Overall this was one of the best cruises I've ever been on. The ship is beautiful, the staff are helpful and seem happy to be there, and the food and drinks are beyond expectation. We were never bored and constantly impressed by the entertainment options. I will absolutely be back.

Virgin Voyages - Mayan Sol by sclarke92

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Scarlet Lady

Virgin Voyages is the cruise line who set out to take cruising to the next level. The level of service and attention to detail is noticed from the moment you get on board. The food choices, the basic wifi and gratuities already included are really major improvements compared to other lines. The technology and modern touches of almost every space of the ship is really cool and useful. The only gripe a person may have is the lack of traditional entertainment. This doesn’t mean there isn’t entertainment, but it is isn’t as “grand” as other lines….but it doesn’t look like it was intended to be that way. It’s different but still good. Overall, can’t wait to go on my next one.

Wonderful New Cruise Line by ToddTravel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Scarlet Lady

We enjoyed the Virgin Voyages so much, that we rebooked while we were on board. It's a totally different experience than any other cruise line that we have been on. The atmosphere was very upbeat yet laid back. No photographers in your face, no standing in line to get dinner and there was plenty to do if you chose to do do.

Fantastic time by Deesse

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Scarlet Lady

Cons: Problems with app, massage price were steep and I felt that it should include use of the spa for the day or at least a few hours. I had an excellent massage but unfortunately the experience was hampered by the fact that the therapist spoke through out the entire time I was there. I could not relax and enjoy her excellent work. There was one guy in the gym on our first morning there who we asked about where we can find water. He did not once take his eyes off of his phone to even acknowledge that we were speaking to him. Poor customer service on his part, but thankfully an isolated incident. All other staff we met were wonderful and helpful. Pros: Room attendants were outstanding. The food/drinks is the highlight of this ship for me. Healthy, clean eating, yet delicious options. So many options. Entertainment was different but very enjoyable. Found lots of activities to keep us busy. We were never bored. The ship is gorgeous and very easy. The bartenders, entertainment staff, and blues singer were fantastic. You can make this cruise whatever you choose...romantic, partying, quie, relaxing lounging, etc.....it all exist in this one ship. You must visit Bimini. My favorite island by far. I loved every aspect of it. Also there are plenty of seating and food is great. I love that they had food available well into the evening. We left around 5pm so I am not sure for how long it lasts. Truly appreciated the late night snacks: popcorn. Staying active is very easy and fun on this ship. Exceptional gym/VHS class. Never saw anyone use outdoor gym equipment though. Love that the loot (tab) can be used for more than just the bar and specialty coffee/juices. It helped offset the cost for the final bill for us. Especially since we invested in upgrading internet for streaming. As well as splurged on spa services. I do wish that I could have had access to the specialty drinks that I only found at the wake and test kitchen at other bars in the ship. The cocktails there were my favorites. Room attendants immediate oriented us to room and were available to answer questions. The ship was not at capacity so we had no issues seeing all the shows that we wanted. Four days was not enough time to sample all the great food. My husband truly appreciated the fact that they broadcasted a football game that he had really wanted to see on our tv in our room. Thank you to the staff that gave us that tidbit of information. Be mindful that a staff might invite you to a secret party.... so take advantage:) Wish: Would like a comedy show. I worry if there be sufficient space/time slots for everyone to see the shows (they are outstanding). Recommend: People should keep reading reviews, Virgin Voyages appears to be making constant changes to improve guests' experience. For instance my embarkation, testing and disembarkation was a breeze. The fastest/easiest experience I ever had on a cruise ship. The app has sooo much information on it that helped guide us. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this ship and are planning to return in 2022. Loved it.

First cruise and now I’m hooked! by esleezer

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Scarlet Lady

Perfect cruise adventure for my husband and myself. We were able to truly relax and just get away from life for 5 wonderful days. I enjoyed everything this ship has to offer. We sailed at 50% capacity which probably spoiled us. Everything we ate was excellent. Staff were attentive. The shows we caught were fantastic. Most of our time was spent lounging and just relaxing though.

Pros- Overall beautiful ship and great food! The staff was friendly. Cons-bathroom in the cabins were small, the app periodically crashes and had to be reinstalled. I wish there was a drink package because the drinks were not cheap. by jdpessa

Virgin No More! by Cruiser60747674

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Scarlet Lady

From the moment that we parked the car at the terminal, we knew the cruise was going to be phenomenal. Embarkation was smooth and rapid. Our cabin perfect and despite what some people said, had plenty of storage space. Our first meal confirmed that we were going to have great food for the next five nights. I should say great food is really not strong enough -- fantastic, some of the best you ever had food. The crew was happy, helpful, and ready to go the extra mile. Our only complaint, the voyage ended and we had to return to normal life. We've already booked our next Virgin Voyage.

Love the Band, made room entry easy and for ordering drinks. App was a pain. Always crashing. Could not use it to order food or drinks. Have to use App to make restaurant and show reservations.

Almost great! by akhazin

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Scarlet Lady

It feels like Virgin Voyages is trying to straddle the line between a mainstream cruise line like Royal Caribbean, and a luxury adults-only line like Seaborn or Oceania, but for a lot less. Overall, I enjoyed my cruise on the Scarlet Lady and would probably cruise with Virgin Voyages again, granted they fix all the annoying minor isssues.
