Scarlet Lady Gets Ready For First U.S. Sailing
Virgin Voyages is ready for its long-awaited first sailing from the U.S., as Scarlet Lady is set to depart Miami today on a four-night voyage.
The vessel is scheduled to stop at Nassau, Bahamas as well as Bimini — where Virgin’s exclusive destination The Beach Club at Bimini is located.
Scarlet Lady was originally scheduled to debut from Miami in April 2020, but the inaugural voyage was delayed several times due to the pandemic. Ultimately, the first sailing with paying passengers was August 6, 2021 from Portsmouth, UK.
