Virgin Voyages Names Third Ship Resilient Lady
Richard Branson’s Virgin Voyages is naming its third ship, The Resilient Lady. The ship will join Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady when it debuts in the second half of 2022.
The ship will be the third of four ships currently planned from Virgin, a cruise line that was set to make waves with the highly anticipated debut of Scarlet Lady last March. That debut, and the debut of Valiant Lady, was put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic and Virgin is now anticipating those ships hitting the water later this year.
Resilient Lady’s debut will be a departure from the plans for the other two ships, both of which are set to debut out of PortMiami. Resilient Lady will instead debut with sailings out of Athens, Greece. The ship will sail a Greek Isles itinerary that includes Santorini, Rhodes, Crete, and an overnight stay in Mykonos, along with an Adriatic itinerary that includes stops in Dubrovnik (a late-night stay), Kotor, Corfu, and Argostoli.

Learn About their New Wave of Health Measures Before they Set Sail
For the last few months, they’ve been hard at work creating a new set of health measures so you can get back to those quiet, sun-on-your face moments spent out at sea. We got into sea travel with the goal of redefining it, so even though the circumstances have changed, we’re committed to innovating and creating an even safer sailing experience.
From their ambitious goals for redefining health measures at sea, to their new industry-leading partnerships — Virgin Voyages wants you to know what you can expect before, during, and after your voyage.
Their health and safety measures have been put in place by our Voyage Well Expert Advisory Group consisting of AtmosAir, EcoLab, Dr. Heymann at Vikand, Global Public Health Services, and close collaboration with the CDC as well as frequent reviews of WHO best practices and guidelines.
BEFORE WE SAIL Implementing additional, frequent pre-boarding health checks and screenings, installing Thermal Camera technology to monitor temperatures at the terminal and on board, and fogging every single item that goes on our ships.
THE CLEAN SCENE Incorporating the latest heightened hygiene initiatives for COVID-19; sanitizing dispensers in every public space, touchless faucets, increased hygiene signage, and leveraging hospital grade EPA registered disinfectants from EcoLab.
A (LITERAL) BREATH OF CLEAN AIR Installing the latest technology from AtmosAir Solutions — an air filtration system that kills 99.9% of viruses. We treat 100% of the air on board, which is the first of its kind in the industry.
KEEPING IT SOCIAL (BUT DISTANT) Reducing our overall ship capacity for our start-up sailing period, creating more distance between groups at our spaces, and leveraging our already-digital experience to limit contact — from virtual queues and service chats to The Band (for no-touch payment).
