“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,” Virgin Voyages CEO Tom McAlpin said 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.”

To give passengers more time to enjoy their destinations, Virgin Voyages announced every voyage would feature later stays in ports and a Friday overnight stay in Ibiza. The ship was also designed by some of the minds behind the world’s most loved boutique hotel brands.

The name Valiant Lady was chosen to embrace the idea that women design, captain, lead and champion change in the maritime industry. The new ship will utilize the Scarlet Squad program, which is aimed at recruiting, supporting and mentoring female shipboard talent.

Virgin Voyages’ first ship, the Scarlet Lady, will debut in the spring of 2020. Just last week, Virgin Voyages revealed that the Scarlet Lady’s maiden voyage will be full of celebrity-guest appearances and exclusive surprises.
