Valiant Lady is the name of Virgin Voyages’ second ship and it will sail seven-night Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona when it debuts in May 2021.
“We are thrilled to unveil the name of our second ship, Valiant Lady, and to deliver on our commitment to offer travelers a sea change in how they can experience cruising in this fantastic part of the world. Our sailors will fall in love with the places we go and the moments and memories they will be able to create on our gorgeous ship. After all, there is no better way to sail the seven seas than doing it the Virgin way,” said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, in a statement.
Valiant Lady will dock just steps from Las Ramblas at the World Trade Center in Barcelona, in the heart of the port city and within walking distance of the city’s diverse neighborhoods.
Although it sets sail in May 2021, bookings open on December 19th, 2019. Three different itineraries will be offered from Barcelona, all offering overnight and late night stops in some of the hottest destinations in France, Italy and Spain. The three itenaries from Barcelona are: Barcelona, Ibiza, Monte Carlo, Marseille and Olbia; Barcelona, Ibiza, Toulon, Ajaccio, Marina di Carrara and Cagliari; and Barcelona, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga and the British port of Gibraltar. All sailings feature a Friday overnight stay in Ibiza.
