Virgin Voyages Launches Resilient Lady in Greece

Virgin Voyages celebrated the launch of its third ship, Resilient Lady, on May 14. The ship’s inaugural voyage (May 14-21) is the seven-night “Greek Island Glow” itinerary, which departed from Athens and includes stops in Santorini, Rhodes, Bodrum and an overnight in Mykonos before returning to Athens. Also slated to debut this season, the “Adriatic Sea & Greek Gems” itinerary will explore the Adriatic Sea by way of Croatia’s coastline, Greece’s islands and a bay in the Balkans. This itinerary also includes a late-night stay in Dubrovnik, giving travelers ample time to explore the city during the day and take in the nightlife.

In addition to exploring new destinations, Resilient Lady will also debut new entertainment, including five new shows, two new soirées in The Manor, on-board parties, more live music acts and a festival stage of rotating performances.

Virgin Voyages is also unveiling new food and beverage offerings onboard the ship. Razzle Dazzle After Dark is a menu curated in partnership with Chef Eric Haugen. To celebrate Resilient Lady’s debut, the brand is introducing Opa Hour, an ode to the Greek culinary tradition. Held in the Dock and Dock House on all three ships, Opa Hour will feature a Greek-inspired food and beverage menu in addition to the usual offerings.

Staying close to the brand’s commitment to creating an “Epic Sea Change for All,” Virgin Voyages has partnered with two non-profit organizations: All for Blue and Urban Act. These partnerships include the brand’s participation in underwater and community clean-ups along with the composition of murals in Athens and in the Greek Islands, which are aimed at expressing the importance of sustainable tourism and preserving our oceans.

After its inaugural season in Greece, Resilient Lady will set off on a trans-continental voyage, arriving at Station Pier in Port Melbourne, Victoria, setting sail through Australia and New Zealand from December 11, 2023 to March 27, 2024.
