February 08, 2022 – Virgin Voyages, the lifestyle and travel brand launched by Sir Richard Branson to deliver irresistible vacations, has introduced its latest Lady ship – Valiant Lady.

Unveiled: Virgin Voyages welcomes its second lady ship, Valiant Lady

This March, Valiant Lady will sashay her way around the UK, gracing the ports of London International Cruise Terminal (Tilbury) and Liverpool ahead of her limited bookable MerMaiden voyage from Portsmouth before she docks at her homeport in Barcelona.

Speaking of the arrival of Valiant Lady to 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 to the UK 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. 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.”

Following the globally celebrated debut of her sister ship Scarlet Lady – which holds the most five-star reviews on TripAdvisor and the winner of Cruise Critic’s Best New Cruise Ship of 2021 – Valiant Lady features an impressive 1,330 cabins and 78 RockStar Quarters – not to forget, the two iconic Massive Suites which boast their own turntables and private hot tub – all of which hold industry accolades for the best suites at sea.

With 86 percent of cabins holding a balcony and 93 percent featuring ocean views, the cabins feature a new elevated design to bring warmer energy and a more sophisticated feel, with 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.”
