Virgin Voyages is postponing its Miami launch celebration for Scarlet Lady, planned for this month.

The ship arrived at PortMiami on March 7 and activities were to take place next week.

No health issues on board

Virgin Voyages said it has no health concerns or issues on board.

But, 'in light of the current global headlines, we want to ensure everyone feels it is the right time to celebrate with us ... We feel that postponing our launch celebration to a future date is the responsible thing to do.'

Missed New York

This follows Scarlet Lady skipping a planned call in New York for a showcase event on March 6.

The ship was shown off to first mates (travel agents), media and VIPs during  events in Dover and Liverpool.
