Virgin Voyages Valiant Lady Sets Sail

Virgin Voyages has introduced its latest ship, the Valiant Lady. In March, the Valiant Lady will sail around the UK, gracing the ports of London International Cruise Terminal (Tilbury) and Liverpool ahead of its limited bookable MerMaiden voyage from Portsmouth before it docks at its homeport in Barcelona.

Speaking of the arrival of Valiant Lady in the UK, Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, said: “Following the success of our first lady ship, Scarlet Lady, we are so excited to debut Valiant Lady this March and begin our European tour. The lifting of UK travel restrictions has already shown promising signs with 70% uplift in bookings since December – and we can’t wait to welcome Sailors on-board.”

McAlpin continued: “We’ll be showcasing our newest lady in Tilbury and Liverpool, where fans are invited to wave her in before we kick off  our bookable European sailings from Portsmouth in March and our new homeport in Barcelona in May. Our epic sailings have curated itineraries that are unbelievably accessible for those in Europe wanting to cruise differently, and we look forward to hitting the high seas and showing both budding and avid sailors how to voyage the Virgin way.”

Valiant Lady features 1,330 cabins and 78 RockStar Quarters as well as the two iconic Massive Suites, which boast their own turntables and private hot tub.

With 86% of cabins offering a balcony and 93% with ocean views, the cabins feature an elevated design to bring a warmer energy and more sophisticated feel. They also offer increased drawers and storage space, perfect for longer itineraries.

The brand’s newest vessel also boasts first-class entertainment, state-of-the-art health and wellness facilities, and exquisite dining experiences curated by Michelin-starred chefs, giving Sailors the ultimate dose of vitamin-sea.

Valiant Lady has curated itineraries featuring longer port stays and overnighters in some of Europe’s most idyllic islands and effervescent cities, including Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza.

Speaking of the launch, Sir Richard Branson said, “Virgin Voyages has been a dream in the making since my 20s, and today is a momentous day launching our second ladyship, Valiant Lady. It’s exciting to be able to celebrate our continued growth as a brand that’s on a mission to voyage like no other. In our five decades in business, Virgin has always sought to offer our customers something extra special, and Virgin Voyages has worked tirelessly to do just that.”

For a limited time, Sailors can book any voyage on any ship and get 20% off along with a $100 toward their prepaid Bar Tab, plus an extra 10% off if they pay in full.
