(5:35 p.m. EST) -- Virgin Voyages is giving cruisers more opportunities to catch a firsthand glimpse of its first-ever cruise ship, Scarlet Lady.

Two short cruises, dubbed "Sneak-a-Peek" sailings, have been added to the ship's schedule, preceding the maiden voyage on April 1, 2020.

Departing Thursday, March 26, 2020, and Sunday, March 29, 2020, these three-night sailings will each feature a day at Virgin's new Beach Club at Bimini in the Bahamas, a Scarlet Night Party, access to all restaurants onboard and complete versions of all entertainment to be offered on the vessel's full voyages.

Typically, short preview cruises like these are open to only media and selected travel partners. Virgin's decision to make these pre-inaugural sailings open to the general public is a relatively new concept.
