When Resilient Lady, the third Virgin Voyages ship to debut in as many years, set sail in Europe in May 2023, it was physically indistinguishable from its siblings, Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady. And yet this 2,770-guest ship, with its signature mermaid-embellished gray hull and vivid red lettering and smokestack, revealed some personality quirks all its own.
Most notably, there were changes to the entertainment lineup, designed to reflect the ship’s inaugural season itineraries in Greece and Croatia. These destinations attract a somewhat more mature passenger mix than the party-centric sailings from Miami to the Caribbean on Scarlet Lady and from Barcelona to buzzy Mediterranean hotspots like Ibiza and Cannes on Valiant Lady. For those planning a vacation Down Under, Resilient Lady will also cruise Australia from December through March 2024.
