Resilient Lady Arrives in Greece for Debut Sailingby Dori Saltzman /
Virgin Voyages' third cruise ship, Resilient Lady, makes its debut this Sunday in Greece. During its summer season in the Mediterranean, the ship will operate seven-day "Greek Island Glow" voyages, sails roundtrip from Athens and visit Santorini, Rhodes, Bodrum, and Mykonos (overnight), as well as the seven-day "Adriatic Sea & Greek Gems," which visits spots in the Adriatic by way of Croatia's coastline (with a late-night stay in Dubrovnik), Greece's islands, and a bay in the Balkans.
"I'm thrilled this day is finally here and that Resilient Lady has officially joined our award-winning fleet," said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages. "Since our launch just a few years ago, we have received the travel industry's top awards and have experienced a very high rate of return with up to 40% of our Sailors rebooking their next cruise while they're still onboard with us. I know people are going to love voyaging with Resilient Lady as much as they have with Scarlet and Valiant Lady."
Resilient Lady will also debut new entertainment, as well as new food and beverage offerings including a Razzle Dazzle After Dark menu. And to celebrate Resilient Lady's launch in Greece, the brand is introducing "Opa Hour," an ode to the Greek culinary tradition and offered at The Dock and Dock House on all three ships featuring a Greek-inspired food and beverage menu.
After its inaugural season in Greece, Resilient Lady will set off on a trans-continental voyage heading to Melbourne, Australia where it will sail from between December 11, 2023 and March 27, 2024.
