“Music is a fundamental element of the Virgin Brand's DNA and we know every world class beach club has an epic DJ line up,” said Chris Stubbs, Senior Director of Sailor Experience at Virgin Voyages. Our On Deck DJ schedule is going to ensure our stunning new beach club at Bimini will be as talked about as the infamous beach clubs of Ibiza, St. Tropez and Mykonos, by immersing our sailors in a hypnotic soundscape as they soak up the Caribbean sun during the day and dance to celebrate the night ahead at our beach bonfire soirees.”
The Virgin brand has a deep-rooted history with music and is not stopping at the On Deck specialty sailings when it comes to making music a core pillar of the Virgin Voyages experience. The brand will carefully curate the soundtrack for The Beach Club at Bimini with founding DJ resident Mark Ronson. Additionally, The Scarlet Lady will feature exciting onboard music experiences for sailors such as Voyage Vinyl, the Scarlet Lady’s record shop at sea. The Scarlet Lady will have a festival of choice in entertainment made up of bespoke intimate and authentic experiences created exclusively for Virgin Voyages. This includes The Red Room, a transformative space for live music and entertainment comprised of a traditional Proscenium stage, an alley stage used in fashion shows, then to a dance flat-floor configuration and finally a unique reverse stage setup.
In addition, Sailors who book one of these On Deck specialty sailings by February 14, 2020 will receive up to $400 in onboard credit, also known as Sailor Loot. Sailor Loot can be used towards all of the amazing splurge-worthy experiences over and above what’s already included in their voyage fare, referred to by Virgin Voyages' as their On Us proposition. This proposition includes the things already included in each Sailor's voyage fare upon booking such as Basic Bevvies, WiFi, Food at 20+ Eateries, Group Fitness Classes, and Gratuities.
