Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady will visit Dover and Liverpool early next year before heading to the US for its maiden voyage.
Travel agents will be invited onboard the line’s first ship during both calls in late February before the vessel repositions to its homeport of Miami to sail the Caribbean.
Virgin Voyages confirmed details of Scarlet Lady’s UK visit during a press conference in London today (21 May).
The news followed a number of teases around a visit to British shores in recent weeks from Virgin Voyages chief executive Tom McAlpin, who told TTG in February the line would host “a series of events” when visiting the UK.
“It will be more than you expected,” he said, before last week at the 2019 Clia Conference in Portsmouth adding that Scarlet Lady “could visit multiple UK ports”.
