Virgin Voyages’ third ship will be named Resilient Lady and sail its maiden voyage from Athens next summer, the line has revealed.
Scheduled for completion on 1 July 2022, the vessel will offer two seven-night itineraries around the Mediterranean and Adriatic.
Resilient Lady’s launch expands Virgin Voyages’ presence in Europe next year – with its second ship Valiant Lady homeporting out of Barcelona.
The line’s maiden vessel, Scarlet Lady, is currently scheduled to start sailing this summer after a delayed launch due to the Covid pandemic.
Two seven-night itineraries will be offered onboard Resilient next summer.
The first features Greek history and culture in Athens before island-hopping to Santorini, Rhodes, Crete and Mykonos, while the second offers a visit to Dubrovnik (with a 2am departure) and a chance to experience the nightlife along the Adriatic coast.
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.”
