Virgin Voyages' Second Ship Will Set Sail in 2021
Virgin Voyages hasn’t even set sail yet, but it’s already the hottest thing at sea for 2020. And now, the new cruise company is ensuring it’s the hottest thing in 2021 when its second ship, Valiant Lady, hits the high seas.
The Valiant Lady — named after the Latin word valere, meaning “bold,” “strong,” and “courageous,” is scheduled to sail on a seven-night Mediterranean itinerary out of Barcelona, Spain when she debuts in May 2021. Bookings for new itineraries, which will also offer overnight and late-night stops in France, Italy, and Spain, will open Dec. 19, 2019.
“We are thrilled to unveil the name of our second ship, Valiant Lady, and to deliver on our commitment to offer travelers a sea change in how they can experience cruising in this fantastic part of the world,” Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, shared in a statement. “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.”

Summer in Spain on This 2021 Sailing
In early summer the Valiant Lady plans to dock just steps from Las Ramblas at the World Trade Center Barcelona. The dock location gives unparalleled access to walking around some of Barcelona’s most famed neighborhoods including Poble Sec, el Raval, Barri Gotic, Port Vell and to the beachside area known as La Barceloneta. The cruise will set sail weekly each Sunday beginning in early summer 2021.
Spend Seven Nights Sailing the Mediterranean in May 2021
This spring, sailors are invited on board the Valiant Lady for a seven-night sailing, which includes an overnight stay in Ibiza. For this trip, the Valiant Lady will sail three different itineraries. The first itinerary includes stops in Barcelona, Ibiza, Monte Carlo, Marseille, and Olbia. The second includes Barcelona, Ibiza, Toulon, Ajaccio, Marina di Carrara, and Cagliari. The third itinerary option focuses on Spain with stops in Barcelona, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, and the British port of Gibraltar.
Each of these sailings includes a Friday overnight stay in Ibiza where guests can spend time at various beach clubs, markets, spas, and more. Want to book a sailing? Stay tuned for release dates and book on Virgin Voyages as soon as they open up.
