Virgin Voyages is hosting a three-day cruise event in New York City, featuring exclusive access to the latest in technology and entertainment. The company will be providing guests with complimentary breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and more.

Virgin is holding a series of activities onboard Scarlet Lady while the ship is in Manhattan before heading to Miami, Florida, to begin revenue sailings. 

Although the ship will not be leaving the dock, visitors who pay between $1000 and $1200 may buy overnight accommodations onboard the ship on Saturday, September 18, including in the distinctive Rock Star Suites.

Six of Scarlet Lady’s restaurants will accept dining reservations. The event costs $100 per person and includes meals and beverages at the selected restaurant, drinks at either of the open bars on board, and tickets to one of the two after-dinner performances — Duel Reality or UntitledDanceShowPartyThing.

Reservations are offered on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday nights only; overnight stays are not included.


One of the venues on the Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady is Razzle Dazzle.

On Saturday, though, the real party begins with Trixie Mattel’s Feeling Nauty Drag Pool Party, which runs from noon to 3:30 p.m. The event costs $100 per person and includes limitless food and drinks.

The ship will hold a music festival on Saturday evening, with three separate parties taking place across the ship. A Disco Prohibition Dance Party (with House of Yes) and a performance by Major Lazer Soundsystem will take place on the top deck, with an 80s and 90s theme.

The celebration starts at 9 p.m. from 1 a.m. to 1 a.m. For $150 per person, you get limitless beverages.
