Richard Branson’s new Virgin Voyages cruise line has arrived in The Bahamas.
The company’s new Scarlet Lady cruise ship made its first call on the island of Bimini in The Bahamas this week, with a stop at the Beach Club at Bimini.
Virgin will be making weekly sailings that include stops in The Bahamas, both at Bimini and Nassau.
“The weekly cruises will positively impact the local economy, and cruise guests will get to experience all the joys of a day on a small tropical island, from luxuriating on a gorgeous stretch of powder-soft, white sand beach, to expeditions that take them big game fishing, deep-sea diving, kayaking, and interacting with dolphins,” said Bahamas Tourism Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Chester Cooper.
The adults-only cruises accommodate 2,770 passengers (including crew).
“Virgin Voyages itineraries featuring a day in Nassau and a day in Bimini will allow for your over 2,700 guests to experience a taste of The Bahamas as they explore some of The Bahamas’ premier historical sites and attractions and interact with our warm, hospitable people,” said Bahamas Tourism Director General Joy Jibrilu.
Sailings that stop in Bimini and Nassau will run out of Port Miami through May 2022.
