A new air purification system will be installed onboard Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady
Virgin Voyages has released its ‘Voyage Well’ plan, which outlines several measures the cruise line is taking to ensure the safety of passengers when sailings begin in October 2020.
The plan will introduce pre-boarding health checks and screenings for passengers and see the installation of thermal camera technology in terminals and onboard the ship. The number of passengers onboard Scarlet Lady will be managed to ensure appropriate physical distancing, while technology such as The Band will be used to limit unnecessary contact.
A new bow-to-stern air purification system will also installed be onboard Scarlet Lady and her sister ships, which the cruise line says has been shown to kill 99.9 per cent of viruses.
“The health and well-being of our sailors is our number one priority, so we rolled up our sleeves with leading experts to further innovate and create an even healthier way to travel and still have an incredible vacation,” said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages. “We appreciate some people will be apprehensive about travelling, so we are committed to being led by science and creating ways to give people the confidence to explore the world while feeling safer, more relaxed and free to enjoy themselves.”
