The second and third in this 110,000gt, four-ship series follow 2020's Scarlet Lady.

Minimum noise and vibration

Each has more than 1,400 cabins, including some for solo travelers, with total capacity for more than 2,770 passengers, plus room for 1,160 crew. The ships are certified for minimum levels of noise and vibration.

By installing an app on their smartphones, sailors (passengers) can control a wide range of cabin functions including air conditioning, lighting, opening and closing the blinds, music and television.

Energy savings

Hydrodynamic hull design promotes fuel saving, and cutting-edge technologies reduce the ships' overall environmental impact. For example, they're equippped with a waste heat recovery system that can generate approximately 1 MW of energy. Scrubbers reduce sulfur emissions, while catalytic converters cut nitrogen oxides. LED lights also curb energy consumption.
