Virgin Voyages’ Shake for Champagne delivers the bubbly pronto

Sailors (passengers) can order Champagne delivered anywhere aboard Scarlet Lady with a simple shake of their phone.

Shake for Champagne

When the Virgin Voyages sailor app is shaken, a secret Champagne button is revealed and, with just one press, a bottle of Möet Chandon Impérial will be delivered.

It comes in an eye-catching, gleaming Virgin red Champagne bucket, which is sure to make everyone around envious. The service includes a 750ml bottle with two glasses.

‘It is never too early for Champagne and there is always something to toast to while aboard Scarlet Lady. We want our sailors to enjoy a glamorous holiday and what better way to feel like a rock star than a sip of bubbly whenever and wherever you want it,’ said Tom McAlpin, president and CEO of Virgin Voyages.

Champagne and caviar at Sip

Those looking to treat themselves can also indulge in the newly revealed luxurious Champagne lounge and caviar bar, Sip. It will offer a diverse curation of Champagne labels, including Moët Chandon, Virgin Voyages’ featured Champagne house.

Sailors can opt for a glass priced starting at $9 or splash out on a $1,000 vintage bottle.

Signature afternoon tea

In a nod to Virgin’s quintessential British heritage and eccentricity, Sip will also offer a signature afternoon tea that is promised to delight the eyes as well as the taste buds.

Designed by the Virgin Voyages design team, with spatial design by HKS Hospitality Interiors, the lounge was inspired by the glamour and effervescence of Champagne. Featuring a long marble bar with rose-gold inlay, Sip encourages sailors to indulge in one of the most luxurious pairings of them all, Champagne and caviar.

Gold and rose-pink hues echo the color of the Champagnes that will be served, and are offset by deep watery blues and carrara white marble bars and tables. A deep ocean blue banquette wall and carpet wraps through the space.

Limited-time booking offer

Sailors can toast to Virgin Voyages’ inaugural season now through Nov. 30, as those who book April or May sailings will receive a complimentary special Virgin Voyages limited-edition bottle of Möet Chandon Imperial in their cabin upon arrival. In addition, sailors who book now can snag their voyage with half off their deposit.
