Virgin Voyages reveals second ship, Valiant Lady

We are thrilled to unveil the name of our second ship – Valiant Lady – and to deliver on our commitment to offering travellers a sea change in how they can experience cruising in this fantastic part of the world.
– Tom McAlpin

Virgin Voyages has unveiled the second ship in its upcoming cruise line-up.

Valiant Lady follows the firm's inaugural ship Scarlet Lady and will sail seven-night Mediterranean itineraries out of Barcelona Spain when she debuts in May 2021.

Named after the Latin word 'valere' and from the French origin 'vaillant', meaning bold, strong and courageous, the ship is designed to embody the idea that women design, captain, lead and champion change in the maritime industry.

Little in the way of detail about the ship has been revealed, although renderings appear to show outdoor greenery and planting sunbathing decks and places to eat and drink.

Virgin Voyages has emphasised a focus on design for its ships, having enlisted boutique hotel designers including Design Research Studio (Tom Dixon), Roman & Williams and Concrete Amsterdam.

Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, said: "We are thrilled to unveil the name of our second ship – Valiant Lady – and to deliver on our commitment to offering travellers 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."
