What are the most Instagrammable Spots on Scarlet Lady?
Virgin Voyages first ship can be described as one of the most photogenic ships at sea. She certainly packs a punch when it comes to providing some epic backdrops for Instagrammars. With interiors designed by a ‘Creative Collective’ curated by Virgin Voyages and featuring the likes of Tom Dixon and Roman and Williams to name a few, you can see why.
Even if you don’t get a chance to stay in the 78 rock ‘n’ roll theme suites, every part of the ship oozes style and sophistication with a side order of quirkiness. Every corner pushes boundaries while still remaining aesthetically pleasing.
1. The Iconic Virgin Logo
This is a must have shot for the gram aboard Scarlet Lady. I mean, if you don’t get this shot, were you ever really there? Head up to the athletic club running track to grab this shot. Extra points for a day time and night time combo.
2. Entrance to the Manor Nightclub
You’ve probably seen this shot so many times already but this is another iconic shot on board Scarlet Lady. The entrance to the Manor, the epicentre of nightlife aboard Scarlet Lady, boasting a nightclub over two floors certainly provides a tantalising entrance in the form of an infinite glitter room. Pictured here is Canadian Writer and Actor, Katherine Ryan during Scarlet Lady’s breif visit to Liverpool in February 2020.
3. Scarlet Lady’s Casino
Whilst there are no dress codes aboard Scarlet Lady there is nothing stopping you from channelling some ‘007 chic’ for a classic Bond style photo here. Order a Vespa Martini to complete the look.
4. Secret Scarlet Stairways at the Sun Club
Throughout the ship you will find Scarlet Lady just keeps on giving with the dramatic and quirky backdrops. Yes, there are the more obvious places on board ship but don’t forget about the smaller but nonetheless as aesthetically pleasing places even the staircases in the athletic club are made for the ‘gram.
5. Athletic Club
While this photo was taken on a gloomy evening, the ship positively lights up like a beacon with stunning scarlet tones. You can just imagine how spectacular this is going to be set against the Caribbean blue sky and sea. Extra points for an action shot on on of the swings.
6. Roundabout Sculptures
There are so many spaces in the Roundabout to take Instagram-worthy photos. You’ll be spoilt for choice. Whether you’re opting for the wide shot of the illuminated sweeping staircase or want to focus on more of the quirky details such as this champagne inspired sculpture. There are plenty of appealing spots to choose from.
7. Draught Haus Rainbow Colums
Dee Cooper, Virgin Voyages’ senior vice president of product design purposely chose designers who had never worked on ship before. The results speak for themselves – don’t expect traditional design and expect experimentation, bold colours and fun modern interiors. Just like the Draught Haus, pictured here in the centre of the ship, just off the Roundabout.
8. Vintage Style Beach Chairs at the Sun Club
It’s not only the Caribbean views that are spectacularly stunning from Scarlet Lady but also the places to view them. These vintage inspired beach chairs bring the beach feeling right on deck. They provide an elegantly sheltered place to enjoy the day at sea or just a spot for pure relaxation. The striking red and white stripes provide a vibrant pop of colour too. Pair with you best 40s style swim suits and a cocktail.
9. Sip Lounge Bar
This bar in the sip lounge provides a stunning backdrop of copper and marble with illuminated reflections from the mirrored background. Just make sure you accompany your photo with a glass of chilled champagne.
10. The Wake Entrance and Wave Chandelier
Definitely the place to make a dramatic entrance. The Wake is a sophisticated eatery at the back of the ship and provides stunning views of surprisingly, Scarlet Lady’s wake. Designed by Roman and Williams this grand staircase provides you with fitting entrance that is dripping in cool. The chandelier also provides an elegant backdrop and also provides great lighting.
11. Sip Lounge Port Hole Windows
Sip is the gift that just keeps on giving for Instagram shots. This luxurious champagne lounge provides multiple Instagram opportunities not just at the bar but also in this light and airy section which is just calling out to be shared with a chilled glass of bubbles.
12. The Dock House
The dock towards the rear of the ship focuses on neutral tones and a focus on relaxation. The dock house provides an effortlessly elegant space to retreat to. This is the place to go for a rustic chic resort background that provides full on Ibiza cabana vibes.
13. Scarlet Lady’s Roundabout
The Roundabout is the beating heart of Scarlet Lady. This iridescent atrium of the ship provides a sweeping staircase with ever-changing hues drawn from colours right across the rainbow. You’re always sure to find a colour combination to complement your look.
14. Pink Agave Entrance
Ready for your Close up on Scarlet Lady? The entrance to Pink Agave which is an upscale Mexican restaurant makes you feel as if you could be inside the flashbulb of a camera. This is the place to go for good lighting.
