Sailing has become one of the world’s most popular forms of vacationing. Every year there are new cruise shops released, hoping to capture the adventurous minds of millions worldwide. Instead, it’s a shopping centre, multiple high-end restaurants or entertainment facilities; there’s something for everyone on a cruise ship. One of the newest movements in this industry is embracing eco-friendly technologies. The Costa Smeralda will operate off liquefied natural gasses, as will another unnamed boat in the Costa Cruise’s Lineup.
Those seeking adrenaline and excitement on their cruising adventure are best suited for the Norwegian Encore. This upcoming vessel has created a new entertainment facility, which holds the largest racetrack of any cruise ship. Norwegian Cruise Lines is offering an augmented reality centre on the Encore, giving younger guests a virtual reality space to experience. Laser Tag is also implemented in this arena, allowing for NCL to compete with Royal Caribbean. However, most of these features are also available on Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas.
2020 marks one of the most significant years in cruising history, with two new cruise liners coming to the Pacific Ocean. These include Virgin Voyages and The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. It’s known that Virgin Voyages will resemble Carnival Cruise Lines, providing large alcohol packages and plenty of bars for millennials. However, the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Club is taking another direction and appealing to a sophisticated sailor. The finest wining and dining will be available, with some of the best Broadway players presented on the seas. With this industry growing ten-fold, multiple options cater to every walk of life. Below we have listed the most highly anticipated cruise ship in 2020.
Virgin Voyages: Scarlet Lady
The first vessel releasing on the Virgin Voyages lineup is the Scarlet Lady. Built by Sir Richard Branson, this cruise ship looks to have a sex appeal for all visitors. It’s slated to be released in April, holding a maximum of 2770 passengers. The Scarlett Lady is one of four planned vessels for 2020 -21, with advertisements catering to younger crowds wanting to mingle and have the time of their lives. Ensuring that these consumers would be acquired, Virgin Voyages used designers that had no previous experience in the cruise lining industry.
The Scarlett Lady has subsequently become one of the freshest looking cruise ships in recent memory. It has everything from a Vinyl Shop to a Tattoo Parlor, with the suits being themed around Rockstars and the party lifestyle. The sundecks will focus on female hot yoga, with bars centred around the main pools. There’ll also be vegan menus, full-meat menus, and non-alcoholic drinks as well. Consumers can sail with Virgin Voyages for three to several nights.
