Virgin Voyages has announced that Dover will be the first ever port of call for its epic Scarlet Lady cruise ship, in February 2020.

This exciting news was revealed by Spice Girl Geri Horner (Halliwell) at a press conference in London last night and celebrated at a star studded party, which showcased a taste of Virgin Voyages’ signature Scarlet Night on-board events.

After leaving the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, Italy, Scarlet Lady will set sail first to the Port of Dover where she will be hosting a number of exclusive events for First Mates, media and VIPs.

Sonia Limbrick, Head of Cruise at the Port of Dover says: ‘We are incredibly excited to be welcoming Scarlet Lady here for her first ever preview. Set amongst the wonderful backdrop of the White Cliffs (now maybe with a splash of red) and Dover Castle, the Port will undoubtedly give her the first class welcome she deserves.’

Barbara Buczek, Chief Commercial Officer at the Port of Dover adds: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be working work with Virgin Voyages team, who are definitely making waves in the cruise industry. It’s fantastic to see their rebellious approach to creating a unique offer and we are delighted to be part of this extraordinary journey.”
