The first ever Virgin Voyages cruise ship will have free dining venues. The cruise line also revealed that there will be no buffets or dining rooms as featured traditionally on most other cruise ships in the industry.
Virgin Voyages Reveals Innovative Dining
When the first Virgin Voyages cruise ship named Scarlet Lady arrive in 2020 she will bring a new way of dining with no traditional buffets or dining rooms. The cruise line will have plenty of specialty restaurants but they will all be included in the cruise fare with no additional fees during the cruise.
There will be more than twenty dining venues providing international choice and partnerships with leading chefs. These restaurants are going to bring outstanding taste at sea to the adults-only cruise ship.
Here are the details revealed from Virgin Voyages about the venues which will be on Scarlet Lady:
Glamour is on the horizon at the aft of the ship. Designed by Roman and Williams, Wake offers sailors a dramatic view of the ship’s wake while serving a sophisticated take on steak and seafood as well as a Sommelier led Magnum menu. Cheers, Sailor!
Designed by Concrete Amsterdam, Razzle Dazzle is the place where your vegan friend, your carnivorous friend, your vegetarian friend, and your friend who hasn’t bought groceries in two years can all enjoy their favorite dish. Feeling a little bit cheeky? Sashay over to the Red Bar for a few extra surprises.
In this Concrete Amsterdam designed experimental, lab-like restaurant, chefs will have carte blanche. They’ve hand-picked all the ingredients and written them down on your menu. As for how those ingredients will come together, you won’t know unless you dare to dine with us.
In Korea, you’re not drinking right if you’re doing it alone. In Geonbae, we believe the same goes for eating (and drinking, of course). Enjoy the best Korean BBQ on the seven seas with the first round top-shelf soju shots on the house.
Tom Dixon didn’t hold back when designing this upscale and refined Mexican restaurant. Fueled by the power of simple and fresh ingredients coming together for an explosion of flavor. Salty rim, anyone?
Feeling a bit peckish? The Galley, a made to order food market with options galore, is our answer to sailors’ concerns over wasting food. Instead of buffets, you have a variety of options for whatever meal or craving you’re feeling at the moment. From early breakfast to late night munchies, relax in one of the top communal spaces on board while you enjoy beautiful views and even better food.
The Pizza Place
The perfect spot for people watching and made to order pizza. At The Pizza Place, you have complete control over your pie, from the dough to the cheese, a little cracked pepper, a little ricotta, and any other topping you want, watch it come to life right before your very eyes.
Very few things in the world rival an exquisite dish cooked with a mother’s touch. For Extra Virgin, our pasta-focused eatery deeply rooted in Italian traditions, we felt the same goes for your surroundings. With communal tables and a private dining room inspired by a “mobster’s lair,” this is the perfect space to enjoy top-tier dining that feels like a home-cooked meal.
