Scarlet Night Pool Party: The Centerpiece of a Night to Remember

The Scarlet Night Pool Party is a highlight of any Virgin Voyage. A celebration filled with fun, laughter, and unexpected thrills, it’s an event you’ll remember long after you’ve returned home. Here’s everything you need to know about this unforgettable evening:

A Spectacular Setting

As you approach the pool area, you’ll be struck by the dazzling red LED lighting and the giant inflatable octopus that seemingly reaches its arms around the entire space. The entire area transforms into an undersea fantasy land, creating a magical ambiance that’s perfect for letting loose.

Note: If the weather does not allow the pool party to take place, the cast will take the party into The Red Room.

Kick-off with the Resident DJ

Even before the main event gets underway, the resident DJ starts the party early, filling the air with infectious beats that draw sailors to the pool’s edge. It’s a time for mingling, excitement-building, and perhaps even a bit of anticipation about what the night will bring.

High-Energy Dancing with The Happenings Cast

Leading the way in full ‘Octopus Goddess‘ attire, The Hostess and The Happenings Cast perform fabulous, energetic dances around the pool’s edge. Their enthusiasm is contagious, encouraging guests to join in and set the tone for the celebration.

The Scarlet Night’s Theme Song

The Hostess’ rendition of the Scarlet Night’s unique theme song is a much-anticipated moment, marking the official start of the party. As her voice fills the air, the excitement builds, and the atmosphere becomes electric.

Dancers in the Pool

Watch for dancers splashing in the shallows of the pool, kicking up water, and raising the temperature. Their performance signals the time is near for guests to join in the fun.

Join the Dance in the Pool

Keep an eye on staff personnel entering the pool area, as this heralds the invitation for sailors to dance in the pool. Whether you choose to dance on the shallow-water platforms or take a daring run and jump into the pool, the choice is yours.

Tips for Pool Party Fun

  • Clothing Consideration: You can dance in the pool fully clothed, but it might be wise to change into Scarlet Night swimwear to minimize the wet clothing in your suitcase later.
  • Safety First: Security is present to ensure everyone’s safety, so keep any wild antics fun and considerate of others.

After the Pool Party

The pool party continues with the resident DJ, and some members of The Happenings Cast may continue to join guests by the pool. Eventually, though, the event winds down, leading to the Scarlet Night: The Afterparty at The Manor Nightclub. It might be wise to dry off and change before joining this final celebration, which continues until the early hours of the morning.


The Scarlet Night Pool Party is an extraordinary experience that embodies the spirit of Virgin Voyages. It’s a celebration of freedom, creativity, and the joy of being with others who are ready for an adventure. If you have the chance to participate, don’t miss it. It’s a night that encapsulates the very essence of what a Virgin Voyage is all about – unexpected surprises, uninhibited fun, and memories that last a lifetime.
