Virgin Voyages reveals name of third ship, launching 2022

Virgin Voyages third ship, Resilient Lady

Virgin Voyages has announced the third ship in the fleet will be called Resilient Lady.

The ship, which is scheduled to join the fleet next year, will sail the Mediterranean in 2022 on two seven-night itineraries from its homeport of Athens.

Resilient Lady – which will join Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady in the Virgin fleet – will embark on a Greek Isles itinerary, taking in Santorini, Rhodes, Crete and Mykonos, as well as an Adriatic voyage, sailing out of Athens to Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu and Argostoli.

The line said: “With a 2:00 a.m. departure from Dubrovnik, sailors (guests) will be afforded plenty of time to experience the rich history of Croatia during the day and take part in the active nightlife along the Adriatic Sea.”


Virgin Group founder Richard Branson said: “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.

“I’m so proud of the incredible work the team has accomplished to introduce Resilient Lady.”

Virgin Voyages president and CEO Tom McAlpin added: “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.”

Scarlet Lady is scheduled for a soft launch this summer, while its sister Valiant Lady is expected to join the fleet in November 2021.

Earlier this year the line unveiled a new training platform to help travel agents learn about different areas of the brand, ranging from destinations to on-board activities.

Virgin Voyages AVP international sales Shane Riley said: “The development of our E-Learning platform is in direct response to requests from our First Mate partners, offering them a meaningful format to learn at their own pace with clear bitesize modules.”
