A sad week for the Travel Industry

Exciting Call to be made in the UK in 2020

Virgin Voyages have announced their new first cruise ship will make a stop in the UK next year on her way to the Caribbean.

Virgins new cruise ship ‘Scarlet lady’ is currently being built in Genoa. She is set to sail in 2020 for her first season in the Caribbean from the port of Miami.
