What's it like to cruise with Virgin? Find out in our Scarlet Lady Cruise Vlogs!

We spent 4 nights on the brand new Virgin Voyages Cruise Ship Scarlet Lady. The cruise started in Portsmouth a new cruise port for us on the south coast of England.

We had heard a lot of differing opinions about this new cruise line and ship and really thought that they were definitely not the cruise line for us. We are a married couple in our late 50’s and this cruise line is definitely not targeted at our age group. They also made the bold statement that they would revolutionise cruising, which did intrigue us. The cruises were for only 4 nights and with the cruise line normally being based in the US, it was a rare opportunity. So we thought what have we got to lose, and booked it. Worse case scenario was that if we don’t like it we just won’t cruise with them again.

In this post we share our vlogs so when you watch them you can make the decision whether cruising with Virgin Voyages would be for you!
