Virgin Voyages has announced that its second ship will be called “Valiant Lady” and will sail seven-night Mediterranean itineraries out of Barcelona, Spain when it debuts in May 2021.
Bookings for the three feature itineraries, that all offer overnight and late-night stops across some of the hottest destinations in France, Italy and Spain, will open Dec. 19.
“We are thrilled to unveil the name of our second ship – Valiant Lady – and to deliver on our commitment to offer 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. 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.
Valiant Lady will dock just steps from Las Ramblas at the World Trade Center Barcelona, positioning Sailors as close to the heart of this departure-port-city as possible. This prime location, usually reserved by luxury liners and mega-yachts, gives walking access to the diverse neighbourhoods of Poble Sec, el Raval, Barri Gotic, Port Vell and the famed urban beach of La Barceloneta. With a weekly Sunday sail away, guests can enjoy extra time in Barcelona and be able to take advantage of many different flight options.
