Geri Halliwell gives first tour of RockStar Suites on Richard Branson’s new Virgin Voyages cruise ship Scarlet Lady – The Sun

SPICE Girl Geri Horner has given the first look inside the new RockStar Suites on Richard Branson's Virgin Voyages cruise ship.

The new cruise liner, Scarlet Lady, is due to launch next year.

Geri, who has recently finished the Spice Girls tour around the UK, tried out some of the newest suites and everything they offered in a new promo video.

The long-time friend of Richard Branson can be seen trying out the in-room record player, testing out the guitars and sipping champagne on board.

Each room will now feature a dedicated hair and make up crew on request for Mega RockStar guests.

Complimentary services will also include access to the on board Redemption Spa thermal suite, unlimited food and drink at all of the restaurants and a personalised bottomless mini bar in the rooms.



Designed by Tom Dixon, the mega-yacht inspired rooms will include ocean-view marble showers and terraces equipped with hammocks overlooking the sea.

A rockstar theme features throughout, and you can even find vinyl turntables in the rooms.

But the real experience of the suites start before guests even board the ship.

Guests are offered private transfers and VIP pathways onto the ship, and they're allowed early access to the restaurants and entertainment.

There's even a private member's club just for guests staying in the suites.

As part of the rockstar experience, there's also a wardrobe team to help you pack and unpack.


The wardrobe team even offer an express swimsuit drying service and a complimentary pressing service.

There are 78 RockStar Suites on board, with 15 being more premium ones, but the Mega RockStar Suites are the stand out spaces on board.

Measuring 2,147 square foot – compared to a standard cruise ship room, which is under 200 square foot – the Mega RockStar Suites are the most luxurious accommodation on board.

They feature a hot tub, a personal music room with guitars, a stargazing lounge and a private outdoor terrace with a table that's made for dancing on.


Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, said that the new RockStar Suites are spaces where guests "can live out their fantasies aboard the Scarlet Lady".

Last year, Sun Online Travel revealed that the Scarlet Lady can hold up to 2,770 passengers.

It will include a nightclub, an oversized gaming area with jenga and pool tables and an outdoor workout space with a boxing ring.

Wellness is a theme throughout with Venice Beach-esque juice bars, wellness spas and free exercise classes such as sunrise yoga on the agenda.

Drag shows, tattoo parlours and 20 different restaurants and bars will also feature on the ship.

Virgin Voyages will also be eco-friendly, with plastic bottles, straws and food packaging banned on-board.

The cruise ships will sail from Port Miami around the Caribbean, with two more ships set to follow in 2021 and 2022.
