Not top heavy, it's the angle of the pic.

This is about the most top-heavy ship I've ever seen! I'd hate to be aboard this one out at sea in a storm. Looks unstable even if it was tied to a dock!

Love 'em or hate 'em, more to come from Sir Richard. (First of three). According to on line sources, when launched (April) Scarlet Lady will be under the command of Wendy Williams. The first Canadian woman to be at the helm of a ship among the major cruise lines.

I am very satisfied of great interest of my pictures. Thanks M.C.

There's no doubt that I am from a bygone age and I suppose my design preferences remain there too, regardless of any economic or planet saving mitigation made for the present crop. I'm with Derek on this (Hi Derek I'm still breathing) on apparent seaworthiness. AS for the design, well it made me think of a new steam iron that my wife has bought.

Well i like this ship. Apparently some folks are not getting used to new gen ships with their new appearances. Even the MSC Seaside and her sisterships are almost design the same way as this ship which i also like. There are worst ships out there, honestly this is not one.

It seems I'm the only who who likes it :)

The foreshortening effect of the telephoto lens certainly makes the ship look a bit weird in this photo

The overwhelming majority of cruise ship guests care very little about a ship's outward appearance, and why should they, it's about the overall cruise experience. I predict that Virgin Voyages will be a big success, they've got a lot of things right.

From a different point of view, it does get more people talking than a run of the mill design and controversy is good for public exposure.
The grey tone got me thinking of Central Mare's grey tankers which definitely rise above the rest in terms of unusual livery. Brgds, Michael

Yuk and looks unseaworthy

Hey men! Come down! You like the ships and remember the real "Ship's shape". Hull is fitted for container carrier, funnel for ro-pax ferry... Passengers are really care about cabins, ports of call and service. They don 't care what their ship looks like outside. This is new era of "box shaped barges"

I totally agree with you Michael, I've been following the progress of Virgin Voyages SCARLET LADY and now that we see the final product I have to agree it's a totally hideous design made even worse by the after end of the ship.

Today's cruise ship designs come in all shapes and forms and not all of them are pleasing to the eye but Virgin Voyages have to be congratulated for bringing out what has to be the worst of them all.

Virgin Voyages along with Fincantieri should have designed their ships in a similar fashion to the Disney Cruise Line vessel's.

The SCARLET LADY and her upcoming sister ships are without doubt the most awful looking cruise ships yet designed although I'm not really looking forward to the upcoming NCL "world class" or the new MSC class either.
Michael Wirth on Jan 19, 2020 21:56 (1 year ago)
Who cut the ship in half? Or are they sending the first half on trial before building the rest?

Ridiculous 'design' ...

But thank you for the pictures!

Best regards,
