(8:30 a.m. EST) -- Virgin Voyages' second oceangoing ship, Valiant Lady, will sail Mediterranean itineraries following its debut in 2021.
Based in Barcelona, the ship initially will offer three different itineraries, with ports of call that include Monte Carlo, Olbia, Cagliari and Gibraltar. Each sailing will also include a Friday overnight in Ibiza.
"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," Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages, said in a statement.
Virgin Voyages revealed the name Valiant Lady was inspired by the latin word valere and the French word vaillant, meaning "bold," "strong" and "courageous." Valiant Lady is intended to embody the idea that women can design, captain, lead and champion change in the maritime industry.
Further details regarding Valiant Lady have yet to be released. Its inaugural Mediterranean itineraries go on sale December 19, 2019.
