Virgin Voyages’ new ship Scarlet Lady has completed sea trials
Virgin Voyages’ first cruise ship Scarlet Lady has successfully completed sea trials, announced the company.
The vessel began its first phase of sea trials between November 15 and 18, sailing from Genoa to Marseille, and then a second phase from Marseille to Genova from November 27 to 30.
“We’re thrilled to have completed such a significant milestone with our Sea Trials and have our amazing crew to thank for their passion and tenacity in this achievement. We’re one step closer to getting our sailors on the Scarlet Lady and are grateful for all that have chosen to join us on this adventure,” said Virgin Voyages’ CEO Tom McAlpin.
To mark the occasion, Branson ceremoniously painted the outline of the Virgin flag on the hull of the ship where the Virgin Voyages logo will appear.
When the first Virgin Voyages ship prepares for its maiden voyage, the brand announces its second ship, Valiant Lady. Debuting in May 2021, Valiant Lady will have a base port in Barcelona, Spain, and will sail on 7-night Mediterranean itineraries.
