Virgin Voyages has announced that it’s expanding its on-board entertainment offerings, which includes a partnership with Academy, Grammy and Golden Globe-winning artist and producer Mark Ronson.
Ronson will now join the Creative Collective, a group of artists and designers who are collaborating with Virgin Voyages to make sure the Sailors have the best entertainment out there. Ronson will be creating a series of pre-voyage and onboard playlists for Sailors, as well as curating the vinyl record selection in the RockStar Suites and the ship’s vinyl and music shop – Voyage Vinyl.
Ronson has committed to four performances at The Beach Club at Bimini in 2020. Ronson’s July 9 poolside performance can only be experienced by those who book the July 5, 2020 Mayan Sol sailing featuring stops in Costa Maya, Mexico and Bimini, Bahamas.
When Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady docks at The Beach Club in Bimini, the Bahamas, Sailors will also be able to enjoy great sounds on dry land.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the Virgin Voyages’ Creative Collective, helping lead the charge in music. Sir Richard Branson and the Virgin brand were legendary game-changers in the music industry and it's a thrill to join them as they bring that same spirit to sea travel,” Ronson said. Diplo has also been signed to play a dedicated set at Bimini in 2020.
Virgin Voyages entertainment offering was announced at a special launch in London – a Scarlet Party, attended by Mark Ronson, who spun the decks, Geri Horner and Holly Branson.
“We see music as an essential element to a holiday, not just for parties but also as the soundtrack to laughter, relaxation and much more,” said Tom McAlpin, president and CEO for Virgin Voyages. “It’s an honour to have an outstanding artist like Mark Ronson helping us develop our Sailor experience, alongside an exciting lineup of DJ’s joining our On Deck residency program.”
