Virgin Voyages will enable guests to order Champagne anywhere on the ship at the push of a button.

The "Shake for Champagne" service on the Scarlet Lady, Virgin Voyages' first ship, will be activated through the cruise line's Sailor app. When a smartphone is shaken while using the app, a Virgin Voyages Champagne button is revealed. With just one press of the button, a bottle of Moet Chandon Imperial will be delivered.

The bottle will come in a red Champagne bucket with two glasses. The service will cost $95.

Virgin Voyages also unveiled details of its Champagne bar called Sip. It will serve glasses of Champagne starting at $9 and prices will range up to $1,000 for a vintage bottle. Sip will also be the site of afternoon high tea.

The contemporary design of the room includes a long marble bar with rose-gold inlay, offset by a wall of deep ocean-blue banquettes and blue carpet. The banquettes will each have an oversized round porthole window.

Through November 30, those who book April or May sailings will receive a complimentary Virgin Voyages limited-edition bottle of Möet Chandon Imperial in their cabin upon arrival.

The Scarlet Lady sets sail in April 2020.
