Cabin:

We were so excited when Virgin announced this beautiful Scarlet Lady. Obviously, our first booking was cancelled, and we lifted it to this voyage on January 12. Check in was a little unorganized, but only because the Lady had come in late that day and the staff was a little out of sorts. We received our Covid nose swab and were led into the waiting area for results. Once we had the results (within 15 minutes), we were allowed to check in and receive our bands. The bands were awesome. Not too bulky, almost like a nice bracelet. It opens your room, lets you charge whatever you are purchasing to your account, gets you on and off the ship if you're going into port. It's your ID bracelet, so to speak.

We purchased the Rock Star suite at the back of the ship. Now, to say this was a "suite" was really a stretch. This room was so small, we couldn't even stand in front of the closet. What there was of it. And I say that because if this was more than a 4 day cruise, there would be nowhere to put our clothes. Only 4 small drawers inside the closet and a small area to hang clothing. The safe, which is a good size, is in the closet.

The cabin is nicely decorated, however, the storage in the room is just terrible. They took up valuable space with a record player and some albums for your listening pleasure - I don't know of anyone in our circle that would take a cruise and sit back and listen to records. There is a bar in the room and the first round is on Virgin. After that, if you want them to restock, it's on your bill. There are two small tables, one on each side of the bed. No drawers. A glass of water, your phone, eyeglasses...that's about all you can fit on there. The plug availability was very good.
