When I started to put together this guide on the best suites on Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady, I discovered during my research that each Virgin Voyages ship has the same deck plan; So regardless of which ship you decide to sail on in the Virgin Voyages fleet, (Scarlet Lady, Valiant Lady, Resilient Lady, or yet to be named Ladyship number four) this guide will help you.

You might also want to check out my other guides in this series such as: Accessible Cabins on Virgin Voyages and Ultimate Virgin Voyages Cabin Guide. But you’re here for the suites, so let’s start.

What are the different grades of Suites on Virgin Voyages Ships?

There are two categories of suites on Virgin Voyages: RockStar Quarters and Mega RockStar Quarters. ships (Virgin Voyages refers to them as Quarters not suites). Each is made up of four different grade of suite:

  • RockStar Quarters (Sweet Aft Suite, Seriously Suite, Cheeky Corner Suite, and Brilliant Suite)
  • Mega RockStar Quarters (Gorgeous Suite, Posh Suite, Fab Suite, and Massive Suite)
Virgin Voyages Suites deck plan

RockStar Quarters on Virgin Voyages

Rockstar Quarters are the next grade up from the XL Sea Terrace Cabins. Think of them as the ‘entry level’ suites on Virgin Voyages (but they are much more than that).RockStar suites are perfect for sailors (passengers) who want to upgrade their experience on board to the next level and add take advantage of some extra perks.

In total there are 63 RockStar Quarters on board each ship. All RockStar sailors receive a black version of ‘The Band’ (on board wallet and room key) which also acts as the VIP pass to enter Richard’s Rooftop (a members only area the ship). Even at full capacity there will only be a maximum of 162 RockStar sailors on board.

There are four categories of RockStar Quarters aboard Scarlet Lady, Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady.

  • Sweet Aft suite – 416 to 661 sq ft depending on deck (SAP, SAE and SAB Grades)
  • Seriously Suite – 354 sq ft (SS Grade)
  • Brilliant Suite – 428 sq ft (SB Grade)
  • Cheeky Corner Suite – 615 to 848 sq ft depending on deck (SCP, SCE and SCB Grades)

Seriously Suites

Seriously Suite RockStar Quarters are all located on Deck 12, Midship. These are amongst the smallest and least expesive suites on board Virgin Voyages. There are 24 of these SS Grade suites on each ship. All these suites sleep up to 2 people. The interior space is 284 sq ft and the balcony space is 68 sq ft (352 sq ft total). There’s also a large marble bathroom with a peekaboo shower.

There is 1 Accessible Suite in this grade on each ship (12285Z) which is directly opposite the forward lifts.

Cabin numbers run from 12219A to 12285A on the left (port) side and 12219Z to 12285Z on the right (starboard) side. Higher cabin numbers are nearer the (forward) lifts. Cabins 12285A AND 12285Z are directly opposite the midship lifts and stairs giving you quick access to all the midship action on deck and from the roundabout on decks 6 and 7.

All these Suites are located in the Mid Forward section of the ship with cabins above and below. These cabins are perfectly positioned near to all the midship action: the Aquatic Club, Sun Club, Pool and Gym & Tonic Bar – and of course these suites are not far from Richard’s Rooftop. As these are Midship Suites, they will experience somewhat less movement in more choppy waters than aft suites or those right at the front (forward) so these suites might be a good option if you suffer from motion sickness.

Virgin Voyages Aft suite

Sweet Aft Suites

Sweet Aft Suites are located right at the back of the ship, dead centre, looking out over the ship’s wake. If you are partial to an aft view, then these suites provide the best seats in the house (ship).

All these suites sleep up to 2 people and there is a total of 7 of these category suites on board each ship. On the deck plan these suites are SAB, SAE and SAP grades.

None of the Sweet Aft Suites are listed as accessible cabins.

The size of these suites (including the terrace space) ranges from 416 sq ft to 661 sq ft. This is due to the profile of the ship’s stern. All cabins have the same interior space (236 sq ft), but the higher-grade cabins tend to have more terrace space.

The highest-grade cabins with the biggest terrace space are located the higher up on the ship on decks 12-14. These cabins with the largest terrace space are also more expensive compared to those on decks 8 and 9.

For example there’s about a $45 difference per night between the lowest and highest grade of suites in the seriously aft suite category (based on an 11-night voyage on Resilient Lady in 2023 sailing from Piraeus).

Here’s a breakdown of which suite numbers are in each grade.

  • Sweet Aft Suite Pretty Big Terrace Suites (SAP Grade): 8009A & 9009A
  • Sweet Aft Suite Even Bigger Terrace Suites (SAE Grade): 10009A & 11009A
  • Sweet Aft Suite Biggest Terrace Suites (SAB Grade): 12009A, 13009A & 14009A
Aft shot Scarlet Lady

It’s worth noting that all the Sweet Aft Suites are located furthest away from Richard’s Rooftop. They are also slightly more shaded, especially the suites higher up the ship on decks 12-14. Depending on your preferences, this might be either a deal breaker or a much sought-after feature – but it’s good to know before you book.

Despite their shady location, the Sweet Aft Suites are located near the aft lifts and stairs and are perfectly situated for the Wake, Dock House, and Gunbae (for retox activities), and the Perch and Athletic club (for wellness and detox time).

Similar to the Cheeky Corner Suites (see below), it’s also worth bearing in mind that these aft suites might not be the best ones to book if you suffer from motion sickness; in more choppy waters you might find aft cabins experience slightly more movement than midship cabins. If this might be an issue for you, then perhaps opt for a midship suite in this category instead (such as the Brilliant Suites and Seriously Suites).

Cheeky Corner Suites 

There are 14 Cheeky Corner Suites on each ship and these suites can be found on decks 8-14 (2 on each deck). On the deck plan these suites are SCP, SCE and SCB grades. All these suites sleep up to 2 people.

None of the Cheeky Corner Suites are listed as accessible cabins.

The total size of the cabins ranges from 615 sq ft to 857 sq ft. All cabins have the same interior space (311 sq ft), but the higher-grade cabins have bigger terrace space. The highest-grade cabins with the biggest terrace space are located the higher up on the ship you go on (decks 12-14 have the largest terraces).

  • Cheeky Corner Suite Pretty Big Terrace Suites (SCP Grade): 8011A,8011Z, 9011A & 9011Z
  • Cheeky Corner Suite Even Bigger Terrace Suites (SCE Grade): 1011A, 1011Z, 11011A &11011Z
  • Cheeky Corner Suite Biggest Terrace Suites (SCB Grade): 12011A, 12011Z, 13011A, 13011Z, 14011A & 14011Z
Brilliant Suite - balcony

As a comparison, there’s about a $45 difference per night between the lowest deck and highest deck of suites in the Cheeky Corner suite category. (based on an 11-night voyage on Resilient Lady in 2023 sailing from Piraeus)

Just like the Sweet Aft Suites, it’s worth noting that all the Cheeky Corner Suites are located furthest away from Richard’s Rooftop. But again, they are super-near the aft lifts and stairs and are perfectly located for the Wake, Dock House, Gunbae, The Perch, and The Athletic club.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that these aft suites might not be the best ones to book if you suffer from motion sickness, as in more choppy waters you might find aft cabins experience slightly more movement than midship cabins. If this might be an issue for you, then perhaps opt for a midship suite in this category instead (such as the Brilliant Suites and Seriously Suites).

Brilliant Suite - perks

Cheeky Corner Suites are all located at the aft and provide almost 270-degree sea views. These cabins have wrap-around sea terrace balconies which you won’t get anywhere else on any balcony on ship (unless you upgrade to one of the two Massive Suites on board).

If you want the largest sea terrace space for your buck, then these suites offer the best option. Try to get the suites on Deck 14 as they have the biggest space (537sq ft) and have more exterior space than interior space. (if a little shady). However, if you’d rather a balance between both interior and exterior space, then best opt for the suites on the lower decks (Decks 8 & 9).

Brilliant Suite - scarlet lady

It’s worth noting that all the Cheeky Corner Suites have an adjoining door to a Sea Terrace cabin. If you want to book the adjoining Sea Terrace cabin, I’ve included a list of which ones connect below and I would suggest booking through a First Mate Travel Agent to help you get the specific combination of cabins you require (all the blue sea terrace cabins shown sleep up to 2 people):

Brilliant Suites 

There are 18 Brilliant Suites on board each ship. Brilliant Suites are all located on Deck 14, Mid-Forward. These are SB Grade cabins. The interior space is 396 sq ft and the balcony space is 86 sq ft (428 sq ft total).

These are the highest-grade and most expensive suite in this category in the RockStar Suites. The Brilliant Suites have a similar layout to the Seriously Suite but with more space (both are midship). The Brilliant suite has a lounge area and sofa bed whereas the Seriously Suite doesn’t. As a result, these suites are able to accommodate up to 4 people (2 in a double Euro King Bed and 2 in a double sofa bed). You also seem to get a wider balcony space with the Brilliant Suite.

None of the Brilliant Suites are listed as accessible cabins.

Brilliant Suite - Rockstar Quarters (3)

Cabin numbers run from 14221A to 14285A on the left (port) side and 14221A to 14285Z on the right (starboard) side. Higher cabin numbers are nearer the (forward) lifts.

As the Suites are located Mid-Forward they are perfectly positioned near to all the midship action and are just below Aquatic Club, Sun Club, Pool and Gym & Tonic Bar. Richard’s Rooftop is only 2 decks up and can be easily accessed from the Forward lifts. Once again, as these are Midship Suites, they will experience somewhat less movement in more choppy waters than aft suites or those right at the front (forward) so these suites might be a good option if you suffer from motion sickness.

Mega RockStar Quarters on Virgin Voyages

If you want to go large on your suite, then the Mega RockStar option might be for you. These are the highest grade of suites and are therefore the most exclusive cabins you will find on each and every ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet. Staying in one of these suites is about as all-inclusive as you can get.

In total there are only 15 Mega RockStar Quarters on board each ship. All Mega RockStar suits sleep up to 4 people. Mega Rockstar sailors receive a gold version of The Band’ (on board wallet and room key) which also acts as the VIP pass for Mega RockStar Suite Sailors to enter Richard’s Rooftop. Even at full capacity there will only be a maximum of 60 Mega RockStar sailors on board. Quite an exclusive club.

Mega RockStar suites are located at the centre of everything on Deck 15 just a few steps above Richards rooftop.

There are four categories of RockStar Quarters aboard Scarlet Lady, Valiant Lady and Resilient Lady.

  • Gorgeous Suite – 570 sq ft (SG Grade)
  • Posh Suite – 833 sq ft (SP Grade)
  • Fab Suite – 950 sq ft (SF Grade)
  • Massive Suite – 2,147 sq ft depending on deck (SM Grade)

All the Mega RockStar Quarters suites are located in the Forward section of the ship on Deck 15 and directly below Richard’s Rooftop.

Gorgeous Suites 

Gorgeous Suites (SG grade cabins) are the least expensive (and smallest) suites in this this cabin grade on Virgin Voyages. There are 9 Gorgeous Suites on board each Virgin Voyages Ship.

There is 1 accessible cabin in this grade of suite on-board each ship (Cabin 15291Z) which is located directly next to the forward lifts.

The interior space is 396 sq ft and the terrace space is 174 sq ft. (570 sq ft total). These suites are a great option of you want to experience the Mega RockStar life on board Virgin Voyages for the least amount of money (in fact if you’re 4 friends travelling together – staying in one of these suites might be a more cost-effective option for you – taking all the perks into account – than two sea terrace cabins. Want to know how? – then read this post

The Gorgeous Suite includes a lounge area and sleeps up to 4 people (1 double size bed and one double sofa bed). All suites are located on Deck 15 in the forward section of the ship, directly below Richard’s Rooftop and The Sun Club Café.

Fab Suite - Mega Rockstar scarlet lady

Posh Suites 

The next grade up in this category is the Posh Suite (SP grade cabins). There are just two of these suites on board ship (cabin numbers 15315Z and 15229Z) both are located next to each other on the starboard side of the ship in the forward section. The interior space is 572 sq ft and the terrace space is 261 sq ft. (833 sq ft total). The cabin accommodates up to 4 people (2 in a sofa bed and 2 in a double king size bed)

There are no accessible cabins in this grade.

The Posh Suite includes a living room area which is more spacious than the lounge area found in the Gorgeous Suite. Unlike the Gorgeous Suite, The Posh suite also includes a second toilet which is separate to the main bathroom.

Compared to the next grade up (The Fab Suite), The Posh and Fab Suites have the same layout, but the Posh Suite checks in with a slightly smaller interior space at 572 sq ft while the Fab Suite has an interior space of 689 sq ft. Both the Fab and Posh Suites have the same balcony space (261 sq ft).

As an approximate price comparison (based on an 11-night voyage from Piraeus in May 2023) The Posh Suite works out as $340 cheaper per night than the Fab suite.

Fab Suites 

The next grade up in this category is the Fab Suite (SF grade cabins). There are just two of these suites on board ship (cabin numbers 15331A and 15331Z) one on the starboard side of the ship and one on the port side. Both suites are located on Deck 15 in the forward section of the ship, directly below Richard’s Rooftop and The Sun Club Café.

The cabin accommodates up to 4 people (2 in a sofa bed and 2 in a double king size bed) and the interior space is 572 sq ft with the terrace space at 261 sq ft. The Fab Suite also includes a living room area and there is a second toilet which is separate to the main bathroom.

The Fab Suite has the same layout as the Posh Suite, however, the Fab suite is slightly more spacious at 950 sq ft (for comparison, the Posh Suite is 833 sq ft). Both the Fab and Posh Suites have the same balcony space (261 sq ft).

Fab Suite - balcony

There are no accessible cabins in this grade.

As an approximate price comparison (based on an 11-night voyage from Piraeus in May 2023) The Fab Suite works out as $340 more expensive per night than the Posh suite. From the deck plan and cabin renderings, there doesn’t seem to be much between both grades of suite apart from the more spacious interior cabin space.

Massive Suites 

There are only two of these suites on each ship and they provide the largest, most luxurious cabin real estate on board. Both massive suites are located on deck 15 just below Richards Rooftop on Deck 16. Cabin Numbers are 15339A and 15339Z.

With 2,174 square feet of luxe living at sea, each Massive Suite is positioned at the most forward part of the ship to offer the best private panoramic views.

The suite interior includes a soundproofed a music room (electric guitars included) which doubles up as a second bedroom, there’s also a private lounge bar and a double bedroom. Each suite accommodates up to 4 people. (2 in a sofa bed in the music room and 2 in a double king size bed).

virgin voyages massive suite photos lounge

The marble bathroom includes a full-size bath and peekaboo shower. However one thing to consider it that the double bedroom has a window directly through to the peekaboo shower – so it’s worth knowing that if you’re sharing with anyone.

On the expansive terrace (an impressive 1,317 sq ft of terrace) you will find a private hot tub, a table which seats 6 people (with steps to allow easy access to allow for dancing said table), 2 hammocks and two separate seating areas.

Pricewise, this suite comes in around $2,100 per night (based on an 11-night voyage from Piraeus in May 2023)

Despite being at the front of the ship, it’s pleasing to know that there are glass fronted windbreaks on the private sea terrace, so even on the breeziest of days at sea, you won’t feel like you’re in a wind tunnel while you’re on your balcony sipping on something from your bottomless minibar.
