GolfAhoy is inviting loyalty level golf-cruise clients on a Caribbean “sneak-a-peek” sailing onboard the brand-new Virgin Voyages ‘Scarlet Lady’ leaving July 15th, 2020 from Miami, Florida.
GolfAhoy founder Anthony Webber and GolfAhoy co-owner Lori Henderson picked this Virgin Voyages ‘Scarlet Lady’ sailing because it also happens to be Richard Branson’s birthday and he’ll be onboard for this sailing.
Before GolfAhoy formally launches a ‘Virgin Voyages Golf Cruises in the Mediterranean’ shore excursion tour program in 2001, the company is inviting GolfAhoy clientele to help evaluate the Virgin Voyages cruise product “firsthand” on a 4-day Caribbean Cruise from Miami on July 15th, 2020.
“The majority of our GolfAhoy clients were born before 1950. The biggest chunk of our business since 1988 comes from client referrals and repeat business. Our average client investment for a 10 Day VIP Deluxe GolfAhoy Golf Cruise is $20,000 per couple. This new Virgin Voyages cruise liner product might not necessarily appeal to our core demographic – but it might, by word of mouth, attract Baby Boomers or their offspring, or offspring’s children – perhaps GolfAhoy might attract a whole new young demographic to sustain GolfAhoy in the coming 10 to 20 years”, said Anthony Webber.
Disclaimer! GolfAhoy might operate bespoke Virgin Voyages Golf Cruises in the Mediterranean onboard the ‘Valiant Lady’ beginning May 2021.
Valiant Lady Mediterranean Golf Cruises might be coming beginning May 2021.
7 Day Mediterranean GolfAhoy Golf Cruises from Barcelona on ‘Valiant Lady’, might begin with regular departures from Barcelona, Spain from May 2021.
The Valiant Lady will dock near Las Ramblas at the World Trade Center Barcelona, positioning golf cruisers close to the heart of the departure-port-city with pre-cruise golf resort add-on options. This prime location, usually reserved for mega-yachts, gives walking access to the dynamic neighborhoods of Poble Sec, el Raval, Barri Gotic, Port Vell and the famed urban beach of La Barceloneta.
‘Valiant Lady’ might sail three different Mediterranean GolfAhoy Golf Cruise itineraries.
Itinerary One includes bespoke GolfAhoy Golf-Shore Excursions in Barcelona, Ibiza, Monte Carlo, Marseille, and Olbia.
Itinerary Two includes bespoke GolfAhoy Golf-Shore Excursions in Barcelona, Ibiza, Toulon, Ajaccio, Marina di Carrara and Cagliari.
Itinerary Three includes bespoke GolfAhoy Golf-Shore Excursions in Barcelona, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga and the British port of Gibraltar.
Virgin has said it has heard requests for later stays in ports so travelers will have more post-golf flexibility to explore.
Dining is included in any of the ship’s more than 20 eateries.
Captain Wendy Williams is the new skipper of the Scarlet Lady. She will be the first Canadian woman to take the helm of a major cruise ship.
