While there have been no health concerns on board Scarlet Lady, Virgin Voyages has decided to postpone the ship’s inaugural season until July 15, 2020. Scarlet Lady’s maiden voyage will now take place on August 7, 2020.
In a personal message Richard Branson and Tom McAlpin have announced Virgin Voyages is postponing the showcase tour launch and inaugural sailing season for Scarlet Lady until July 15, 2020. The maiden voyage of Scarlet Lady will now take place August 7, 2020.
Virgin Voyages is offering a range of options from a full refund and a voyage credit to extra special bonuses for guests who book a future sailing.
Branson and McAlpin continued: “We are so excited for the future of Virgin Voyages as an experience for our Sailors and as a business”. Scarlet Lady has three sister ships coming and Virgin Voyages’ fleet will be bold and bright with a focused approach to addressing climate change through a commitment to a net zero carbon future.
“Finally, despite what we are facing, travel will always be a way for us to connect with one another and open ourselves up to new ideas and ways of thinking. So while this isn’t the time for us to meet on the spectacular Scarlet Lady, it will be soon. We can’t wait to see you on board.”
