When it comes to enjoying a drink, Virgin Voyages new ship, Scarlet Lady, offers cruisers a variety of bars and lounges. Not sure where to start? We have just returned from a sailing and have put together this Virgin Voyages Bar Guide with all the specialty drink menus to help you make the difficult decisions.
Virgin Voyages Bar Guide With Menus
Unlike other contemporary cruise lines, Virgin Voyages does not offer drink packages. Instead, the cruise line allows sailors to pre-load money into a “bar tab”, offering a $50 bonus for every $300 purchased prior to the cruise.
If you are looking to calculate the costs for your drink preferences, or want to know all the specialty drink offerings, you are in luck. We have the bar menus below.

Red Bar (Deck 5)
Tucked in the back of the Razzle Dazzle Vegan-friendly restaurant, the Red Bar serves up some Instagram-worthy cocktails. So, whether you are dining at the restaurant or just want to grab a drink at the bar, be sure to sample some of these crazy concoctions. Perhaps, the goldfish or the popcorn old-fashioned.

This 2-story space, named after Branson’s first recording studio, is home to three bars. This venue offers live music as well as the Never Sleep Alone show in the evenings. It also transforms into the ship’s club later in the night.
Of course, you will likely want to grab a drink while while enjoying the entertainment in the Manor.

On the Rocks (Deck 6)
This mixology bar features martinis and cocktails with an emphasis on aged spirits served “on the rocks”. Given its central location in the Atrium, or Roundabout, this is a popular spot on Scarlet Lady.
You will certainly want to enjoy a drink while listening to the VV Band or while watching one of the many “happenings” that occur here.

Wine Bar (Deck 6)
Located in Extra Virgin, this Wine Bar is the perfect spot to grab a pre-dinner or post dinner drink. With an extensive wine menu, as well as some craft cocktails, like the Godfather, there are plenty of libations to pair with your meal as well.

There is also a second coffee spot in The Galley food court.

The Loose Cannon (Deck 7)
This nautically inspired bar features a signature drink menu with hits like the El Capitano’s Gun Powder or the Shoctopus (shots for 5 people). It is located in a secluded corner through the Social Club, where there are games and good times. Come for the drinks, stay for the fun.
This bar did seem under-utilized to us. So, hopefully the cruise line figures out a way to showcase this venue a bit more.

The Social Club Bar (Deck 7)
The Social Club is an American diner serving classic carnival eats like hot dogs, popcorn, and pretzels. The venue also serves spiked milkshakes!
Not to mention, there is air hockey, foosball, and shuffleboard to keep you entertained for hours.

The Dock House Bar and Dock Bar (Deck 7)
The Dock House Bar is the indoor bar, while the Dock Bar is its outdoor counterpart is this quiet retreat area on Scarlet Lady.
Both bars offer the same menu with a specialty in rosé wines. The venues also offer a great sangria, my favorite cocktail the grapevine, and even pressed juices.

Aquatic Club Bar (Deck 15)
The Aquatic Club Bar is your pretty typical pool bar. Located right next to the ship’s main pool, this will be your go-to spot while lounging poolside on a sea day.
The Aquatic Club bar serves up some great mojitos and frozen cocktails like the skinny pina and the frosé all day.
