The third ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet will be called Resilient Lady and sail to the Greek islands and Adriatic coast from next summer, it was revealed today.
Scheduled for completion on July 1, 2022, Resilient Lady will be based in Piraeus, the port for Athens, and will embark on two seven-night itineraries.
One cruise will include Santorini, Rhodes and Crete, with an overnight stay in the party island of Mykonos. On the other itinerary, the ship will head to Dubrovnik in Croatia, staying until 2am, before sailing to Kotor in Montenegro, the island of Corfu and Argostoli on Kefalonia.
Resilient Lady will be Virgin Voyages’ second ship in the Med, after Valiant Lady transfers there next year after a season in the Caribbean starting this November.
The line’s first ship, Scarlet Lady, is due to launch in Miami this summer. Sailings are currently suspended until the end of June.
‘Sailing in the Med is such an extraordinary experience, and we’re so excited to bring the adventure of a Virgin Voyage to this beautiful place,’ said Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group. ‘I’m so proud of the incredible work the team has accomplished to introduce Resilient Lady.’
The CEO and president of Virgin Voyages, Tom McAlpin, said: ‘Welcoming Resilient Lady to our fleet and revealing these amazing itineraries sets the tone for the most memorable summer voyage. We know the time to travel is on the horizon, and Virgin Voyages is here so that we can keep dreaming of irresistible vacations ahead.’
Virgin Voyages ships, which are adults only, can carry 2,800 passengers. For more details, click here
