In efforts to be on the cutting edge of the cruising industry, Virgin Voyages have announced wearable technology made from recycled ocean plastics that will feature on their new ship.
Onboard Scarlet Lady ‘The Band’ will enable passengers to access their cabins acting as a cabin key, pinpoint passengers locations for delivery of ‘Shake For Champagne’, be a VIP pass for Suite Sailors to enter Richard’s Rooftop and make payments at any onboard retailer or bar.
To complement The Band’s ease of navigation for passengers, Virgin Voyages will also be launching The Sailor App in the next few weeks, so guests can complete the check-in process, book ‘Shore Things’ and more.
The Band and The Sailor App will enter use onboard from Scarlet Lady’s maiden voyage in April 2020.
The rope material for The Band is constructed using BIONIC yarn, with each strand containing six grams of marine and coastal plastic, which is equivalent to one half of a plastic water bottle that would otherwise wash ashore.
“Just like our stunning fleet of Lady Ships, and through our partnership with BIONIC, our wearable technology marries sustainability with smarts and style, which is quintessentially Virgin,” said Virgin Voyages CEO, Tom McAlpin.
“The Band will be our seamless and worry-free way for Sailors to not only unlock their cabin with ease, but to explore all of the thrills and great experiences that Scarlet Lady and the rest of our fleet will have to offer.”
