The Scarlet Lady Taino Bay itinerary brings Virgin Cruises passengers to the heart of the Caribbean, visiting the Puerto Plata port several weekends each month. The cruise ship is a luxury cruise ship concept aimed at an adults-only clientele, inspired by mega yachts, a boutique cruise for adults only designed for all those who have prejudices with this type of travel. From the beginning, Virgin CEO Richard Branson had pitched it as the cruise for those who don’t like cruising.
The Scarlet Lady has 1,330 cabins, as well as 78 Rock Star suites that have a more exclusive touch with a more transgressive air: it even has guitars hanging on the wall. 86% of its rooms have a balcony and almost all (93%) have views of the sea.

The cabins are designed with ‘smart architecture’ guidelines, which involves mobile-controlled lights and temperature, and which are calibrated with the ship’s navigation system. This is a frequent ship at the Puerto Plata Taino Bay port, seen almost every weekend.
Gastronomy at the Scarlet Lady
On board you will find 20 bars and restaurants, such as the “only Korean barbecue of the seas” to others that offer dishes at any time of the day. At the Scarlet Lady there is no free buffet, no turns to eat, and no dress code for the lounges
To reinforce your sustainability message at the Scarlet Lady, there is no all-you-can-eat buffet (a good way to avoid wasting food), nor will it be necessary to set lunch or dinner times. Dress code? In Virgin Voyages’ concept of ‘rebel luxury’ that doesn’t exist.
The most elegant of all the restaurants is the Wake, located at the stern and with 546 square meters, which presents everything from meat to fish and seafood.

Razzle Dazzle specializes in vegetarian food and healthy juices. In the place a resident drag-queen will offer complex cocktails while she performs her performances.
The Test Kitchen, decorated with a periodic table of elements, invites you to experiment through cooking classes, cocktails or coffee. Here nobody chooses dishes but ingredients, and they will prepare them guided by the master chefs on duty.
The Scarlet Lady Taino Bay shore excursions list includes an array of thrilling experiences that cater to diverse interests. One of the highlights is the Monkey Jungle excursion, where passengers have the chance to interact with playful monkeys in a natural and picturesque setting.
For those seeking a more relaxed adventure, the catamaran tour provides a scenic cruise along the stunning coastline, complete with opportunities for snorkeling and enjoying the Caribbean breeze.
Wellness & Fitness
Adrenaline enthusiasts can embark on the Damajagua 27 Falls excursion, an exhilarating journey through the lush tropical landscape to experience the breathtaking series of waterfalls, perfect for cliff jumping and refreshing dips.
Relaxation and unique details
The gastronomic display is balanced by the Vitamin Sea programme, a series of exercises to recover your figure, combined with relaxation and rejuvenation routines.
