Setting sail in 2020, you can now book your spot on serial entrepreneur, Richard Branson's latest undertaking, Virgin Voyages. The first ship, the Scarlet Lady, promises the ultimate high-end, luxury sailing experience - and it's adults-only. 

This is an exclusive experience, catering to those who are fans of the old-school glamour associated with sailing.

“We were inspired by historic vessels of the past that exuded charm and luxury,” Dee Cooper, senior vice president of design for Virgin Voyages, said.

“We wanted to inject a bit of exclusive, distinctive, luxurious feeling nostalgia in a contemporary way that speaks to today’s traveller more.”

The luxe Scarlet Lady will feature 78 RockStar Suites, including 15 Mega RockStar Suites, known as the Massive, Fab, Posh and Gorgeous Suites – all in prime locations on deck 15. This is just one deck below Richard’s Rooftop, a Richard Branson-inspired top deck cocktail lounge, which will be exclusive to RockStar Suite Sailors.

Booking a suite unlocks access to Richard's Rooftop - a lavish, elaborate and members-only outdoor space for stargazing parties and pre-dinner cocktail hours for you and the other 'rockstars'.

So, you are basically partying in Sir Richard Branson private pad. 

Where are we sailing to? The cruise will head to various island destinations, including the Caribbean ports, Miami, Havana, The Beach Club in the Bahamas, Puerto Plata and Costa Maya.
