In a press release, Virgin said the program was designed to “recognize those who have had a significant impact on our lives” and that nominations will soon be opened for those who may deserve a free vacation.
Shipload of Love will be officially launched on Valentine’s Day, which coincides with the anniversary of the delivery of the Scarlet Ladies, the brand’s first ship.
Those wishing to nominate must record and upload a short video to the Shipload of Love website, stating who they are nominating and why. The first 1,000 applications are already open. More will follow in the coming weeks, which will be announced on their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

“No good deed is too small, and no one should be neglected,” the company said. “Love and beauty are in the eye of the beholder, including our unsung heroes who have shown us that their embrace makes the world a better place.” To honor the personal heroes who exist in so many ways in our lives, Virgin Voyages offers a true vessel of love. We are calling on you to nominate someone who has inspired you in the past year, cared for you and helped you have the journey of a lifetime.”
Applications will be accepted until March 16, 2021.
The cruise industry closed in 2020, just as Virgin Voyages was about to unveil the first Scarlet Lady to the public. Today, the ship is finally ready to begin her maiden voyage in May 2021. The ship will call at the Port of Miami for Caribbean cruises, including a stop at the Beach Club in Bimini, the company’s private destination in the Bahamas.
