Virgin Voyages’ first cruise ship Scarlet Lady has successfully completed sea trials, ahead of its inaugural cruise on 1 April, 2020.

The ship sailed from Genoa, Italy to Marseille, France from 15 November to 18 November. Virgin’s founder Sir Richard Branson boarded the vessel in the French port, touring the ship with Virgin Voyages’ CEO Tom McAlpin. 

“We’re thrilled to have completed such a significant milestone with our Sea Trials and have our amazing crew to thank for their passion and tenacity in this achievement,” said McAlpin. “We’re one step closer to getting our sailors on the Scarlet Lady and are grateful for all that have chosen to join us on this adventure.”

Scarlet Lady returned to Genoa on 30 November. She will set sail on her inaugural cruise from Miami, US, to the Caribbean, in a voyage featuring several special events and celebrity appearances.
