Miami - While the first ship of the fleet, Virgin Scarlet, is being born in the Genoa shipyards, the cruise company Virgin Voyages founded by Richard Bransin announced that Marco Carsjens was hired as captain. Before him, Captain Wendy Williams joined the Virgin family.
Carsjens recently worked with the Holland America Line company, where his career began in 1994, when he joined the company as a cadet officer. He has been a captain since 2010. Virgin Voyages will need 12-14 captains in total. The Scarlet Lady ship will debut in 2020, and will be followed by twin ships in 2021, 2022 and 2023. All will be built by Fincantieri.
