Virgin Voyages has revealed that all sailings will feature a stop at The Beach Club, a Virgin Voyages experience in Bimini, Bahamas.
There, passengers can enjoy a beach day or explore the culture of Bimini and its turquoise blue waters.
Meanwhile, Virgin Voyages has also announced that passengers will have a range of original festival-like entertainment to choose from developed by some of the world’s most-talked about producers, directors and artists.
Tom McAlpin, president and CEO for Virgin Voyages, said: ‘At Virgin Voyages we are going beyond just great design, to defy and redefine luxury to be rebellious luxe.

The Massive Suite has its own music room (pictured), which seconds as an extra bedroom, and is stocked with guitars and an amplifier with a vinyl turntable in the adjacent living room
‘This new luxury is about knowing you are taken care of, that you’re never being nickel and dimed, and what you want, even some of the things you didn’t know you wanted, are already taken care of for you.’
It comes just weeks after the first images of the suites on board the Scarlet Lady were revealed.
The ship, due for delivery in Miami in 2020, has 78 suites, with two levels – Mega RockStar and RockStar.
The renderings show the top suite on board – the Massive Suite – and the Gorgeous Suite, which isn’t as big but still has ‘Mega RockStar’ status.
Virgin Voyages currently has four ships on order, due for delivery in 2020 (Scarlet Lady, as previously mentioned), 2021, 2022 and 2023.
Virgin says Scarlet Lady will be ‘a sanctuary at sea for the 18-plus traveller’.
