Music and aviation mogul Richard Branson celebrated World Pride with an announcement that he would be expanding his new cruise line Virgin Voyages to include a new LGBTQ+ charter cruise. Branson is partnering with well-known gay cruise line Atlantis Events and will set sail on his Scarlet Lady vessel. 

The adults-only cruise ship has a “retro-futurism” design and amenities that make guests feel like they’ve chartered their own luxury yacht. With butler service that includes an in-room tablet and app so you can spend your entire vacation lounging in your Rock Star Suite binging on Netflix series through the ship’s satellite. The cruise line doesn’t let first-class services take away from their commitment to sustainability and single-use plastics are banned from the ship.

The seven-night voyage will depart from Miami on May 31, 2020 and make stops in Key West, Florida; Cozumel/Playa Del Carmen and Costa Maya, Mexico; as well as Bimini, Bahamas, which is home to the Virgin Voyage’s Beach Club, a private club for guests aboard the Scarlet Lady.
