British entrepreneur Richard Branson made Virgin Group famous for the astonishing number of businesses associated to his group. After being envolved in many sectors such as health, aerospace, travelling, retail and communications, Branson now invested in a cruise ship line, which he named Virgin Voyages. We bring you a sneak peak into the interior design of the first of his cruise ships which will only launch in 2020 in Miami. Its construction is still under development at the Fincantieri shipyard in the italian port city of Genoa.
The name will be an homage to women: Scarlet Lady. A mermaid will be its main symbol and the cruise’s employment program will give women more respectable positions in fields that are usually occupied by men.
The ship will have a capacity of about 2700 passengers and has an adult-only policy.
Until now only the interior design of two of the restaurants were previewed: Pink Agave, which is a Mexican Restaurant and The Test Kitchen, which owns a laboratory silver asthetic.
The Manor was the name chosen by Branson for his cruise’s nightclub. The Roman and Williams Building and Interiors put together the interior design of this area. This is the same company that decorated the residences of movie stars like Kate Hudson and Ben Stiller and oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow.
It was indespensible for the team to create a space that would not neglect the health of the passengers. Bearing this in mind, they created the B-Complex which translates to Build, Burn, Bike and Balance. This space will also have a spa, a hydrotherapy pool, a mud room and cold plunge pools, only to name a few.
Among other comodities, the cruise will also include The Athletic Club outdoor lounge, a rooftop and a dock. One of the main goals of this experience is the reduction of plastics. Therefore the use of plastic bootles, food packing, straws or any other use of plastic by the passengers is forbidden.
