    (Monaco – April 2019) Silversea Cruises announces 54 new winter 2020/2021 voyages and opens an exclusive pre-sale for its Venetian Society members. The remarkable range of voyages will unlock more immersive experiences for the cruise line’s guests, with an increased number of unique ports for the winter season and 20 maiden calls. Silversea’s team of destination experts has crafted the voyages to incorporate both iconic and rare travel experiences, enabling guests to travel deeper into the authentic beauty of the world in luxury. 

    Comprising the winter itineraries of Silver Muse, Silver Whisper, Silver Shadow, Silver Spirit and Silver Moon ­­­– an ultra-luxury sister ship to Silver Muse, due to join the fleet in August 2020 – the new collection of voyages will showcase the wonders of the Caribbean, springtime in Asia, and the best of both Australia and South America on respective circumnavigations, among other remarkable experiences. Simplifying guests’ journeys, travellers will enjoy complimentary round-trip economy class flights, or business class upgrades starting from USD 199 per leg, and transfers on virtually all voyages in the new collection (exceptions and market-specific conditions may apply).

    A combined total of 26 voyages aboard Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper and Silver Moon will enable guests to form meaningful connections with 46 destinations in the Caribbean. In addition to many quintessential experiences—such as immersive journeys into the rainforests of St. Lucia, opportunities to explore the chic boutiques of St. Barth, and tranquil moments spent in the Spanish-tiled courtyards of San Juan—Silversea’s guests will discover more intimate, lesser-visited ports, such as Jost Van Dyke, Bequia, and Mayreau. Guests will also have the opportunity to travel deeper into the vibrant culture and spectacular landscapes of Cuba. For guests’ convenience, many Caribbean voyages will depart and/or culminate in Fort Lauderdale. A sample itinerary from the new Caribbean voyages on offer includes:

A rich variety of immersive shore experiences in each destination will complement Silversea’s trademark level of luxury on board to make for a unique voyage.

    In Asia, Silver Muse and Silver Spirit will unlock 58 spectacular destinations in 18 countries for guests, with each ship completing seven voyages between September 2020 and May 2021. In addition to calls in the major ports of Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo, the new collection’s Asian highlights include multiple overnights calls in various Vietnam destinations and roundtrip voyages from Tokyo during the cherry

    Virgin Voyages spills the beans and announces Intelligentsia Coffee as exclusive coffee provider with a custom Virgin Voyages blend and expert baristas crafting beverages at Ministry of Ground

     

    SOURCE: VIRGIN VOYAGES

    CHICAGO — April 22, 2019 — When Virgin Voyages’ first ship, the Scarlet Lady, embarks on her inaugural season in 2020, Sailors will have access to extraordinary brews from Intelligentsia Coffee. The specialty coffee pioneer and Virgin Voyages’ partnership will be rooted in shared values of commitment to quality and responsible sourcing.

    Coffee lovers should rejoice because Virgin Voyages Sailors will never have a bad cup on their holiday. Virgin Voyages’ exclusive Intelligentsia blend will be available complementary at all eateries on board Scarlet Lady and her sister lady ships. The Virgin Voyages Blend sources fresh coffee year-round, from Intelligentsia’s Northern season menu in the summer and fall and Southern season menu in the winter and spring. Throughout the year, Intelligentsia’s team creates a consistent flavor experience, balancing the comfort of familiar flavors with a spirit of adventure and discovery. Look for caramelized sugars, a touch of roastiness, and the natural sweetness that is the hallmark of Intelligentsia’s very best coffees.

     

     

    In addition to a constant supply of freshly brewed coffee in all eateries aboard Scarlet Lady, Ministry of Ground and Ministry of Ground Too powered by Intelligentsia will serve as the ship’s coffee bars, fully equipped with expert baristas and made to order beverages. Intelligentsia’s renowned coffee educators will provide extensive training to all Virgin Voyages baristas.

    "I judge a city by the quality of its coffee as social conversations cannot start before I've had my daily dose of personality juice,” said Chris Stubbs, Senior Director of Sailor Experience at Virgin Voyages.” We all knew Scarlet Lady needed a special coffee partner prepared by exceptionally trained baristas who can create the perfect cup of coffee to fuel our Sailors' voyages with us.

     

     

    Environmental sustainability and social impact are at the core of Virgin Voyages’ values. The brand’s purpose is to create an Epic Sea Change for All and use business as a force for good, creating positive changes for people and the planet. Those values are shared by Intelligentsia’s team, who focuses on making extraordinary coffee an agent of change.

    Chicago-based Intelligentsia is a pioneer of coffee’s “third wave”, and the ideals of exceptional quality, transparency, and innovation that define specialty coffee today. Best known for being the first to adopt the direct trade model, a progressive sourcing method where their buying team travels directly to coffee-producing countries to source and collaborate with partners, paying well above fair trade prices. Intelligentsia continues to innovate the industry, elevating every cup to a curated, culinary experience and working with partners to grow the world’s most exceptional coffees.

    Located in the heart of the ship on deck 7, coffee lovers can gaze out at the sea through a porthole-style window while enjoying their coffee. Designed by Softroom of London, Ministry of Ground features large porthole-style windows designed with their very own window seat so Sailors can gaze out at the ocean while sipping a single-origin coffee. Ministry of Ground has been designed with soft earth-tone finishes and furnished with aquamarine and purple hues for seating, tables and loungers. In addition to great hand-crafted specialty coffees, Sailors visiting Ministry of Ground can indulge in complimentary light cakes and bites with retail items like bags of Intelligentsia Coffee and JoJo loose-leaf teas, coffee cups, kettles and more available for purchase. Ministry of Ground Too is located in The Galley food market, so Sailors can sip their favorite specialty coffee while grabbing a quick bite.

     

    ABOUT INTELLIGENTSIA COFFEE

    Intelligentsia Coffee was founded by Doug Zell and Emily Mange in 1995, in the pursuit of extraordinary coffee. 24 years later, Intelligentsia remains one of specialty coffee’s most pioneering and innovative companies. The Intelligentsia Direct Trade sourcing model has created opportunities for thousands of smallholder coffee farmers around the world and has been adopted by specialty coffee roasters everywhere. Known for their In-Season program and unique single-origin and rotating blends, Intelligentsia provides exclusive, remarkable coffees consumers won’t find anywhere else. There are 13 Intelligentsia coffeebars around the country, six located in their hometown of Chicago, four in Los Angeles, two in Boston and one in New York City. 2019 will welcome three new coffeebars: Hollywood (now open), TWA (spring 2019) and Austin (summer 2019).

    MIAMI, Fla. — March 27, 2019 — Virgin Voyages, the new lifestyle brand set to disrupt the travel industry, is returning to its Virgin brand roots and creating an incomparable music experience on their first ship, Scarlet Lady. Due to set sail for its inaugural season in 2020, Scarlet Lady will be equipped with an on ship record shop called Voyage Vinyl, The Groupie, a private karaoke and gaming lounge, and perfectly curated music and performances by up-and-coming artists as well as music trendsetters for Virgin Voyages’ Sailors to enjoy. 

    Virgin Voyages’ residency program will feature performances by world-class talent on ship, in-port destinations and at The Beach Club at Bimini. Just last month, Virgin Voyages announced that the Grammy and Oscar-winning DJ, songwriter and record producer, Mark Ronson, has committed to four performances at The Beach Club at Bimini in 2020. Based on Sailor demand, the company has expanded the star-studded residency music lineup to include the multi-platinum chart-topping artist, DJ, producer/ remixer, MK (Marc Kinchen), who has committed to one performance in 2020. The Grammy-nominated electronic music duo Sofi Tukker, known for their smash-hit Best Friend, will also join the Virgin Voyages residency program. 

     

     

    With the Virgin brand’s deep-rooted history in music, Virgin Voyages’ sonic identity will come to life aboard Scarlet Lady. Each space on Scarlet Lady will have a unique energy, thoughtfully developed by industry tastemakers and brought to life by up-and-coming talent and special guest performances. The Virgin Voyages sonic identity will have a home in electronic music, but will also incorporate other music genres, ensuring that all Sailors will find a sound they love. The brand defines electronic, as not solely a traditional “EDM” sound, but will incorporate all electronically programmed sounds, even those of more classic eras, and the early innovators of the sound from rare disco tracks, through to 80’s sounds and other important periods of electronic sound. That means timeless classics from varying genres will be artfully blended with new and rising artists. Calming sounds will be incorporated at the appropriate times, to ensure moments of relaxation and rejuvenation are in ample supply.  


    As part of Virgin Voyages’ fierce approach to music, the brand also announced the expansion of their Creative Collective from design, food and entertainment to now include music. Virgin Voyages’ new music Creative Collective will include WhiteLabel Creative, a group of music industry insiders that specialize in sensory branding and cultural programming for hospitality and lifestyle experiences. WhiteLabel Creative is responsible for developing the background sonic palettes across the ship and securing DJs for The Beach Club at Bimini’s residency program. 

    Leaning into Virgin’s history in music, something old is new again with Voyage Vinyl, the record shop aboard Scarlet Lady. Voyage Vinyl will be the go-to spot on board for Sailors to experience music from all eras and genres. Voyage Vinyl features personal listening stations for Sailors to enjoy their favorite albums both current and classic. Sailors looking for something unique can also shop for limited-edition curated albums and special editions of classics. Sailors can also purchase music magazines, headphones and record players.

    Voyage Vinyl will also double as a performance spot for live sets mixed by Scarlet Lady’s resident DJs.

     

    Sailors can let loose at The Groupie, Virgin Voyages’ bookable karaoke, gaming and movie lounge. Designed by Roman Coppola, The Groupie was designed as a modernist take on a Japanese-style karaoke room for Sailors to enjoy singing along to their favorite tunes with friends.

  • The sky is no longer the limit with Virgin Voyages' new private jet transfer

    Plantation, Fla. — April 1, 2019 — Virgin Voyages, the new lifestyle brand set to disrupt the travel industry, today announced it is upping the ante, and means of transportation for its RockStar Suites Sailors.  

    Inspired by The Runway, the red running track that sits atop of the ship like a halo, on Scarlet Lady, Virgin Voyages will soon give its Sailors the runway they deserve on its second ship. All Sailors staying in RockStar Suites will now arrive and depart via private jet transfer– so pop the champagne because the sky is no longer the limit with Virgin Voyages.

    “From the sky to the sea, our RockStar Suite Sailors will truly live the glamorous life of a rockstar icon from the moment they begin their holiday. Why walk aboard the ship when you can fly,” said Tom McAlpin, president and CEO of Virgin Voyages.

    Virgin Voyages has thrown out traditional clichés – and modes of transportation – on stuffy luxury and formalities with their RockStar Suites designed by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio. The Suites bring a fresh take to yachting glamour steeped in the Virgin brand’s rock and roll heritage. Inspired by mega yachts and the glory days of rock and roll where stars like Queen, The Sex Pistols and The Rolling Stones reigned supreme, the RockStar Suites feature a retro-futurism design with a palette of deep blues used with iridescent dichroic elements to echo the deep blue sea. 

    RockStar Suites Sailors will live their best lives all taken care of with VIP private jet transfer, early access to onboard entertainment, restaurants and Shore Things. Upon disembarking the jet, Virgin Voyages RockStar Suites Sailors will have their very own wardrobe team to help unpack and repack, complimentary pressing service and nightly express swimsuit drying service-- because no rockstar should ever have a wet bottom.

    Virgin Voyages is a global lifestyle brand committed to creating the world’s most irresistible holiday. With operations in the US, UK and Europe, Virgin Voyages currently has four ships on order with master shipbuilder Fincantieri. 

    With its inaugural season scheduled for 2020, Virgin Voyages’ first ship the Scarlet Lady was designed to reflect a yacht’s sleek luxury.

  • SILVERSEA’S GUESTS ENJOY UNPRECEDENTED LUXURY AS A RESULT OF PROJECT INVICTUS

    4/3/2019 2:45:08 PM Link |  | Add comment

    Silversea Luxury Cruises

    (Monaco -- April 2, 2019) The first initiative launched by Silversea Cruises in partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Project Invictus has increased Silversea’s luxury offering to enhance guests’ cruising experiences further still.

    As part of the largest investment in the company’s history, the cruise line is growing and improving its ultra-luxurious fleet of ships. In addition to Silver Moon and Silver Dawn, which were announced prior to the launch of Project Invictus and are expected to join the fleet in 2020 and 2021, respectively, Silversea has ordered three new ships as part of Project Invictus: Silver Origin, which will be primed for cruising in the Galapagos Islands, and two Evolution-class ships. Extensive refurbishments were also made to Silver Whisper in December 2018, while an augmented refurbishment of Silver Wind – planned for the summer of 2020 – will improve the ship’s cruising versatility, thanks to a strengthened ice-class hull and the addition of Zodiacs.

    A number of enhancements are being implemented to upgrade the cruise line’s already exceptional culinary offering. In addition to being welcomed by chilled champagne in their suites upon embarkation, guests always have complimentary sustainable Ars Italica caviar at their fingertips 24 hours per day, thanks to an enhanced caviar offering. Available both in-suite and in all restaurants throughout Silversea’s ships, complimentary caviar is offered to guests by the tin and as a garnish for meals, such as tartare and lobster. Preserving a centuries-old tradition, Ars Italica is a leading producer of caviar and uses sustainable techniques to farm the highest-grade product and support the repopulation of sturgeon to northern Italy. Caviar is among the top-grade ingredients that distinguish Silversea’s onboard canapé selection, along with foie gras, truffle, tiger prawns, and macarons.

    The quality of ingredients is as high as ever, yet guests’ preferences are better anticipated with increased quantities: across Silversea’s fleet, around 180,000 bottles of champagne and 2,400kg of caviar are consumed by guests each year—a 340% increase of the latter. Approximately 66,100kg of lobster is consumed yearly, along with an increased abundance of other seafood delicacies, 66,100kg of tenderloin steak, 33,100kg of striploin steak, and 58,000kg of fresh berries, including strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Guests are particularly enjoying the remarkable variety of meats on offer, from the ‘Italian Piemontese’ served in the Italian La Terrazza restaurant to the ‘French Limousine’ served in the French La Dame restaurant and the ‘American Angus’ served in Atlantide.

    Comprising between 50 and 70 labels, the largest complimentary wine list at sea has also been upgraded, as Silversea adds more variety to its industry-leading selection, including more regional options to immerse guests in the culinary culture of sailed regions. On Silversea ships, more than 670,000 bottles of wine are consumed each year, including the most reputable labels from iconic wine producers and lesser-known bottles of extraordinary quality, as selected by Silversea’s expert Wine Ambassador. Every major wine grape is represented, as part of a collection that comprises both ‘old world’ and ‘new world’ wines, from champagne through to dessert wines. Many premium wines are also offered alongside the complimentary list, at unusually competitive prices.

    Another enhancement made possible by Project Invictus, offered aboard Silversea’s expedition ships only, guests on expedition voyages will receive a complimentary DVD package that will depict the highlights of their voyage. Produced by a professional onboard videographer, the DVDs will showcase the immersive experiences unlocked by the cruise line, capturing unforgettable memories for Silversea’s guests.

    Moreover, the cruise line’s television programming has been upgraded, meaning its in-suite entertainment is among the best at sea. As part of the enhancement, guests will now be able to watch the most in-demand live football and basketball fixtures, among other significant broadcasts. In addition to approximately 100 blockbuster movies, including roughly 20 new releases each month, 90 hours of tailored destination and documentary content is now enjoyed by guests, plus a further 150 hours of television shows.

    “I am very pleased to hear such positive feedback on Project Invictus from guests,” says Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO. “I am receiving emails on a daily basis from guests who appreciate the enhanced offering, as well as the exceptional service for which Silversea is renowned. It is clear that Project Invictus has made a significant impact since its implementation. I take pride in being the CEO of a cruise line that is so committed to the enjoyment of its guests.”

    Silversea  Cruises, in which Manfredi Lefebvre d'Ovidio serves as Executive   Chairman, is recognized as an innovator in the ultra-luxury cruise line 
    industry, offering guests large-ship amenities aboard its intimate, all-suite vessels: Silver Wind, Silver Shadow, Silver Whisper, Silver Spirit and Silver Muse – all designed to offer an atmosphere of conviviality and casual elegance. With the inclusion of the expedition ships Silver Explorer, Silver Galapagos, Silver Discoverer, and with Silver Cloud recently joining the Expedition fleet, Silversea's itineraries  encompass all  seven continents and feature worldwide luxury cruises to  the Mediterranean, Caribbean, both Polar Regions and hundreds of fascinating destinations in between. Silversea is also looking forward to the  launch of five new ultra-luxury ships: Silver Moon, Silver Dawn, Silver Origin and two Evolution-class ships.
