Richard Branson is building a luxury cruise ship for adults only

Virgin Voyages, the cruise line launched by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, has released renderings of its new adult-only cruise ship.

The Scarlet Lady will have an 18-year-old age requirement and will feature a nightclub, a thermal spa, two restaurants, athletic clubs and a barbershop.

The interior and exterior have been conceptualised by some of the world’s most successful design firms, including Tom Dixon Design Studio of London, Roman and Williams of New York and Concrete Amsterdam.

“Our design partners together with our internal design team have dreamed up eye-catching, intimate and alluring spaces that we can’t wait to see come to life,” said Tom McAlpin, President and Chief Executive Officer for Virgin Voyages, in a statement to Business Insider.

There will also be an exclusive outdoor lounge called Richard’s Roof-deck for suite guests.

Inside the ship, guests can choose between two restaurants, Pink Agave and Test Kitchen.

The ship will have an outdoor athletic club for guests who are interested in joining a boxing class or running track. The indoor gym will offer group fitness classes, yoga and stationary bicycles.

There will also be a thermal spa called Redemption that will have a hydrotherapy pool, mud room, salt room, cold plunge rooms, quartz beds and other spa treatments.

For those looking for furthering pampering, there will also be a nail salon, a barbershop and a hair salon.

The ship is expected to arrive in Port Miami in 2020 for its maiden journey.

It will hold 2,700 passengers and 1,150 crew members.
