Enjoy two nights in New York City then sail on Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady from vibrant Miami to the pastel-hued streets of Key West, with a day and night (10 am to midnight) spent at The Beach Club at Bimini, Bahamas — complete with Virgin Voyages signature bonfire bash under the stars.
This four night voyage is a soirée of lights — sunsets on the horizon, private parties, unexpected surprises, and late nights under the Bahamian sky. Arriving at 8 am in Key West and leaving at 7 pm, you'll have plenty of time to explore the shops on Duval street, visit Hemingway’s house and snorkel in the famed coral reefs.
Day by day itinerary
Fly directly to New York from Gatwick where you will arrive mid-morning. You will be met and transferred by private car to The Lotte New York Palace Hotel for a two night stay in a double superior room on a room-only basis.
A stately and historic landmark in Midtown Manhattan, Lotte New York Palace has long reigned as New York City’s most iconic and instantly recognisable hotel. A peerless address for business, a glamorous setting for society gatherings, and a treasured retreat for holidays, Lotte New York Palace is woven into the fabric of New York City.
Relax into your room and then explore the city, maybe find a local restaurant for lunch or take in a show in the evening.
Today is yours to explore New York and do as you please. Contact us for bespoke travel arrangements and private tours.
Check out of your hotel and take your included private transfer to the airport and fly to Miami, where you will be transferred to the port to embark Scarlet Lady.
Miami is one of the world’s most popular holiday spots. It has so much to offer; from its countless beach areas, to culture and museums, from spa and shopping days out, to endless cuban restaurants and cafes. Miami is a multicultural city that has something to offer to everyone.
Located closer to Havana than Miami, Key West is synonymous for all that is fabulous. Whether it’s beaches, back country or just a brilliant time that you’re after, Florida’s most southern point holds a wealth of intrigue, both past and present.
Famous for its crimson and gold-hued sunsets, Key West is more than just a spot to admire the painted skies (but of course, it is that, too). An adopted home to some of America’s most seminal writers (Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, & Robert Frost — to name a few), Key West is an apex of gorgeous cultural collision and celebration. Bahamian Conch, Cuban and African-American cultural heritage create the backbone for the inclusive and accepting philosophy of Key West’s “One Human Family”.
The lovely little dual islands of Bimini consists of two main islands—North Bimini Island and South Bimini Island— as well as countless cays. Located just 50 miles off Florida’s coast, Bimini is the closest Bahamian island to the United States, and as such is the most “American” if all the Bahamian Islands. Yet, the miles and miles of pristine beaches are witness to the fact that yes, this is the Bahamas and yes, this is paradise indeed.
See-through water and sandy white shores punctuate this geographically poetic port. And like any good haiku, it's cloaked in seductive mystery. Besides having access to the island’s incredible biodiversity in marine life, boating, snorkeling and even historic shipwreck diving, sailors get exclusive access to The Beach Club — Virgin's private beach club experience. Peaceful mornings and restorative days or amplified afternoons at the DJ-led pool party —this club is designed to answer whatever your specific mood is calling for. But regardless of your energy level, the bonfire finale will be nearly impossible to pass on.
Debark and take your included private transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK, arriving the following day. Want to linger longer? Contact us for post-cruise hotel stays and tours.
