NEWS: As Virgin Voyages celebrated the strength and resilience of women in tandem with International Women’s Day, they also announced the name of their third ship: Resilient Lady.
The company reported, “While the year has been filled with adversity and adaptation for all of us, it’s no secret that women have been challenged to rise up more than ever during the pandemic. From juggling motherhood with the newly-minted title of at-home teacher, to making sure things stay afloat at work, women around the world have endured and prevailed. And as the medical community faced the virus head-on, women made up 67 per cent of the global healthcare workforce and 80 per cent of all nurses. So it felt deeply important for us to honour and acknowledge the sacrifices, contributions and resilience of the women in our lives.”
Resilient Lady will set sail through Europe from her new home port of Piraeus (Athens), Greece for new seven-night itineraries, which include island-hopping in the Adriatic, late-nights in Croatia and overnights in Mykonos.
Their “Greek Island Glow” itinerary features stops in the gorgeous islands of Santorini, Rhodes, Chania (Souda), Crete and an overnight in Mykonos.
The “Adriatic Sea and Greek Gems” itinerary heads to Dubrovnik, Croatia (with a late-night stay), Kotor, Montenegro, and then onto the Greek Isles of Corfu and Argostoli.
