We'll start with one of the most extraordinary cruise lines of modern times. Yes, of course, we're talking about Virgin Voyages. While the whole cruise world is looking forward to Scarlet Lady's debut, the cruise line officially celebrated its groundbreaking at PortMiami on January 12, 2021. Yes, the construction is already in full swing. However, this event has brought us one step closer to a new page in cruise history.
We remind you that Virgin Voyages will homeport its first representative, Scarlet Lady, in Miami when she begins her cruise career this year.

It's a good start of 2021, isn't it?
Well, of course, we know that cruise companies continue to postpone the resumption of operations, sell their ships, and most regrettably, send our beloved liners to ship scrapping yards. Nevertheless, we believe in our mind's power and want to share more positive and good cruise news with you.
Stay brave and positive. Stay safe and healthy. Stay tuned.
