One less Virgin in Miami this summer
The Scarlet Lady will sail out of Portsmouth, England this year and not Miami.
Virgin Voyages has announced that the yet to be launched Scarlet Lady will sail later this summer from the UK and not from Miami. Joining many cruise lines that have opted to sail outside the U.S., Virgin has cancelled all of its Miami sailings.
Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson said: “Virgin Voyages has been looking forward to sailings and we’re so excited to announce our plans to sail from the UK.
“Our team has curated such a fantastic experience for our sailors [passengers] and know tis will be a holiday they will love.”
Virgin Voyages president and Chief executive Tom McAlpin added:
“After more than a year of waiting and a major emphasis on a safe return, we’re ecstatic to announced these new sailings and bring sailors on board to experience what it’s like to sail the Virgin way.
“We look at our new UK summer voyages as a homecoming to pay homage to our British roots and what an excellent way to kick-off our sailing season before heading to Port Miami.”
