Virgin Voyages’ second newbuild, the Valiant Lady, was floated out recently at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.
She will sail seven-night Mediterranean itineraries out of Barcelona, Spain when she debuts in May 2021, according to a prior announcement from Virgin.
The Scarlet Lady, the line’s first 2,770-guest ship, was originally set to debut earlier this year but that has now been pushed to October due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virgin will offer three itinerary options from Barcelona aboard the Valiant Lady.
The first will call in Ibiza, Monte Carlo, Marseille and Olbia. A second offering will call in Ibiza, Toulon, Ajaccio, Marina di Carrara and Cagliari; and a third itinerary focuses on Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga and the British port of Gibraltar. All three feature a Friday overnight in Ibiza.
