The most Instagrammable Spots on Scarlet Lady

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.

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.
