Virgin Voyages Champagne
Virgin Voyages, the new lifestyle brand set to shake up the travel industry, has announced its exclusive on-demand champagne delivery service – ‘Shake for Champagne’. Continuing to create the most irresistible experiences at sea, Virgin Voyages is enabling Sailors (their term for passengers) to request champagne, anywhere on board the adults-only Scarlet Lady, with a simple shake of their phone. Those looking to take indulgence to the next level, can also treat themselves in the newly revealed luxurious champagne lounge and caviar bar - Sip. On schedule to enter service next April, the 2,750-guest Scarlet Lady is the first of four identical ships for Virgin Voyages.
“It is never too early for champagne and there is always something to raise a toast to while aboard Scarlet Lady. We want our Sailors to enjoy a glamorous holiday and what better way to feel like a rock star than a sip of bubbly whenever and wherever you want it,” said Tom McAlpin, president and CEO of Virgin Voyages.
Virgin Voyages is giving its Sailors one more reason to celebrate all of life’s moments with its ‘Shake for Champagne’ delivery service. When the Virgin Voyages Sailor App is shaken, a secret Virgin Voyages Champagne button is revealed and, with just one press, a bottle of Möet Chandon Impérial will be delivered to the Sailor. Delivered in an eye-catching, gleaming Virgin red champagne bucket, which is sure to make everyone around envious, the service includes a 750ml bottle of Möet Chandon Impérial with two glasses - perfect pairing for a day or evening sailing in the warm Caribbean Sea.
All cruises aboard Scarlet Lady will include a stop at The Beach Club on Bimini – a tiny island in the Bahamas. The resort will feature beach clubs that Virgin claims will rival those in Ibiza. After a morning filled with yoga and meditation, the afternoon cranks up when DJ-led pool and flotilla parties get underway. At night a beach bonfire will add to the chillaxed vibe of live acoustic music. When not partying, Sailors will be able to socialise at one of the island's six bars, rent a beach or pool-side cabana, or cut loose in the warm ocean before joining in some beach sports.
