Virgin Voyages has released designs and images of its RockStar Suites. The new, adults-only cruise brand says it is striving to bring "Rebellious Luxe" to life at sea with its RockStar Suites, which are designed by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
Highlights of the Massive Suite, the top suite aboard the Scarlet Lady, include its very own guitar-clad music room, views of the ocean from every corner of the suite, and a terrace complete with its own Peek-a-View outdoor shower, hot tub, hammocks and a runway outdoor dining table.
RockStar Suite Design
Inspired by mega yachts and rock and roll style icons like Grace Jones, the RockStar Suites feature Tom Dixon’s retro-futurism designs with a palette of deep blues used with iridescent dichroic elements to echo the colors of the sky and sea when sailing. Touches of yacht materiality are sprinkled throughout the suites with real leather finishes, marble-clad bathrooms and Terrazzo flooring. The suite’s design also incorporates nautical nods with a brass glam station and accenting beauty counter and bedhead lighting. Each suite is equipped with a vinyl turntable.
The RockStar’s View
All suites are configured to maximize the view of the ocean. Many of the ship’s suites have a Peek-a-Boo shower, an all-marble shower with a dichroic glass window carved in the center. Rockstars who opt for the ship’s top Mega RockStar Suites, can bathe under the sun or stars with their very own Peek-a-View outdoor shower.
The sea terrace for each suite will have a specially designed champagne table able to fit an ice bucket at the center next to loungers, as well as Yellow Leaf brand, sustainably sourced terrace hammocks.
In terms of perks, RockStar Suites guests will be able to enjoy early access to onboard entertainment, restaurants, Shore Things, a private transfer to and from the ship in Miami and an exclusive express VIP pathway to the ship during embarkation. RockStar Suites Sailors will have their own wardrobe team to help unpack and repack, complimentary pressing service and nightly express swimsuit drying service.
In "Rebellious Luxe" fashion, Virgin Voyages has reimagined the mini-bar for its rock stars; instead, suites will have a full bar and cocktail kit, with the first round on the house.
All RockStar Suite guests will have access to Richard's Rooftop, their very own private members' club.
All suites have mood lighting that automatically adjusts to match the time of day and in-room tablets that allow travelers to adjust the room’s lighting. Travelers will get premium linens and a European king bed in every suite, as well as upgraded bath amenities for pampering.
Sailors can opt for one of the Scarlet Lady’s Mega RockStar Suites on deck 15. Virgin Voyages says Mega RockStar Suites will receive a personalized bar filled with their favorites, and the RockStar Services Crew will tend to their "rockstar rider list," digging up whatever they desire -- all red gummy bears, an electric guitar and beyond. With only 78 RockStar Suites aboard the Scarlet Lady, among them are 15 Mega RockStar Suites, named the Massive Suites, Fab Suites, Posh Suites and Gorgeous Suites.
The Massive Suite
There are only two Massive Suites aboard the Scarlet Lady, each sitting atop the ship’s bridge. These 2,147-square-foot suites have their own music rooms, which double as an extra bedroom and are stocked with guitars and an amplifier. At the center of the Massive Suite is a circular couch set up for conversation and cocktails from the suite’s adjacent in-room bar. The suite’s bath and dressing room area are complete with a hot tub, vanity area, two full-sized wardrobes and a marble-clad bathroom with a Peek-a-Boo shower area that overlooks the bedroom and out to the ocean. The Massive Suite’s terrace will be where friends and family can experience a private hot tub, a Peek-a-View outdoor shower, a circular conversation pit, a lookout point with loungers and two full-length hammocks. Sailors in the Massive Suite can climb a staircase to the top of the runway outdoor table for dining and dancing.
