Play Like a Virgin
Scarlet Lady is the first ship purpose built for hyper-social, endlessly interactive, original fun -- changing everything you thought about playing on the ocean. You’ll feel like a true sailor on your own massive yacht-like playground. Imagine a pool deck designed for both relaxing and dancing. A gym you never want to leave.

Shows where you’re part of the action and magic in unexpected places. And that’s just the beginning. On top of all Virgin has to offer you’ll be thrilled by even bigger Atlantis parties, our own original entertainment, and so much more. We’ve never played like this before!
Three Magical Days
Set sail from Portsmouth, just an hour from London, for three somewhat crazy, totally unexpected, often wild, and yet purely relaxing days at sea. Settle into a stylish deck chair around the Athletic Club to catch some rays, connect with friends, or just enjoy the views. Drag yourself out to Atlantis’ outrageous drag bingo (yes, that really happens), or savor a leisurely brunch. Just save some energy for our outrageous afternoon T-dances and surprise shows!
When you’re ready to step things up, pop into an inspired fitness class at Training Camp, and afterwards find the perfect treatment at the Redemption Spa.
We’re planning a non-stop festival of entertainment and fun that all of us need right now, with plenty of time to chill, relax, and enjoy the wonders of being at sea.
You’re never far from entertainment on Scarlet Lady, and sometimes you’re literally part of it! From pop-up surprises to sensual dance productions, cutting edge DJs to a sex-themed talk-show, innovative theater to secret stories. All with a little magic thrown in.
We’ll showcase Atlantis’ signature blend of singers, comics, drag queens, and our community’s most talented performers. All appearing in new and creative ways.
All Feet On Deck
There’s never been a pool deck as perfectly designed for the Atlantis style of free-spirited dancing under the sun and stars. From our signature themed t-dances to outrageous nighttime parties we’ll feature the world’s finest DJs with a production unlike anything you’ve ever seen. All we can say is wait until you’re in the middle of it all.
Join us late night for the ultimate after-hours events in the Manor nightclub and Red Room. This weekend the party never really ends!

Virgin Voyages Brand New Scarlet Lady
Virgin Voyages was conceived with a simple idea in mind – redefine what a luxury cruise ship can be to create a radically fun new way to sail. Before a single ship was built, a deeply engaging sailor experience was crafted with an eye towards the future, focused on fun & freedom, discarding legacy cruise elements deeply rooted in the past. Breakthrough design creates a visually stunning and fabulously functional playground, and innovative approaches to entertainment, dining, and wellness will delight you in ways you never imagined.
We think Virgin has created the perfect ship for the Atlantis way to sail, allowing us to offer a bold and unique experience with a sense of freedom and playfulness that you simply won’t see anywhere else.
After all, no other cruise line has full-time drag queens onboard.
