The ship, due for delivery in Miami in 2020, has 78 suites, with two levels – Mega RockStar and RockStar.

The Massive Suite, says Virgin Voyages, ‘is the place that legends dream of, replete with its own music room, which seconds as an extra bedroom, and is stocked with guitars and an amplifier with a vinyl turntable in the adjacent living room’.

There’s also a hot tub, vanity area, two wardrobes and a marble-clad bathroom with a peek-a-boo shower area that overlooks the bedroom and has views out to the water.

And there’s more.

The suite, of which there are only two on board, also has ‘a lookout point with stargazing loungers and two full length hammocks’ – and a runway outdoor dining table for six with its own staircase, ‘to help sailors make their way on top for dancing’.
