Dominican Daze with the Scarlet Lady

Updated: Apr 1

Join Dean on Virgin Voyages Scarlet Lady as we set sail December 10-15, 2021 from Miami, Florida. Virgin Voyages is shaking up ocean escapes with a revolutionary way to sail, on a brand new ship.

Tempting your taste buds at over 20 eateries. All à la carte and all included. Creating total tranquility in an adults-only haven. And rebelling against environmental impact with a ban on single-use plastic. So forget going with the flow. Are you ready to make waves?


The Dominican Daze sails to the snow-white shores of the Dominican Republic from 9am to 6pm, for plenty of time to lay by the beach and explore the city streets. Add a full day and night (9am to 10pm) spent at the exclusive Beach Club in Bimini, Bahamas, complete with a bonfire party under the stars.

Scarlet Lady Itinerary


Day 1 - Friday, December 10, 2021 - Miami, Florida

(all aboard by 5PM)

Miami can party like Vegas, with beaches like the Caribbean and the backcountry beauty of the Bayou, all with the rich cultural diversity of cities like New York and London. The Magic City isn’t just where your journey takes off from; it’s where it begins. Click here for more details on all the Shore Things available!


Day 2 - Saturday, December 11, 2021 - Sea Day

One of our favourite times on the ship are the sea days. You will have ample time to explore all of the amazing amenities on the Scarlet Lady including the 22+ eateries, the all included group fitness classes to keep your beach body in tip top shape, finding your chakras at one of the yoga classes, or swing out on a hammock. When the sun goes down the ship heats up with some incredible night life.




Day 3 - Sunday, December 12, 2021 - Puerto Plata, Dominica Republic (9am - 6pm)

Tucked between the Cordillera Mountains and Atlantic coast, Puerto Plata embodies geographical duality at its best. A day here can include vegging out on the snow white beaches of Playa Dorada, or hiking through the jungle to the 27 waterfalls of Damajagua and careening down via natural slides. Or you can jump right in. We won't tell you how to live. Click here to learn about all of the amazing Shore Things you can see, taste and experience in Puerto Plata.


Day 4 - Monday, December 13, 2021 - Sea Day

On your final sea day it is time to treat yourself to some pampering time and head to the spa, join in on one of the group workouts, hydrate at the fresh pressed smoothie bar, shake the app and get some bubbles, throw the dice at the casino or immortalize your Voyage with some fresh ink. There is a lot to see, savour, and experience. What will you do with your day at sea? Click here to learn more.



Day 5 - Tuesday, December 14, 2021 - The Beach Club at Bimini (9am - 10pm)

Party like a Rock Star or chill at Virgin Voyages exclusive Beach Club at Bimini, The Bahamas. The island is rife with activity like active, ocean based water sports or even historic shipwreck diving. Of course, you may just choose to spend the day revealing or relaxing, at The Beach Club itself, which takes inspiration from gems of the mediterranean like Mallorca, while retaining a grounded Holbox Beach feeling, (Tulum’s charming, rising hotspot, neighbour).


Day 6 - Wednesday, December 15, 2021 - Miami, Florida

(arrival 6:30AM; must depart ship by 11AM)

Today we say farewell as we make our journey to our next adventure either home or continue onward. We recommend making flight departures to be booked after 10am to ensure you have enough time to travel from the port to the airport.
