Virgin Voyages Announces Plans for Its Latest Ship, The Brilliant Lady

Virgin Voyages is set to announce its upcoming plans for its latest ship, The Brilliant Lady. The news will be unveiled on May 1, 2024, during a live transmission on the company’s website

Virgin Voyages has published teaser videos on its social media accounts and online that promise “something brilliant” and “epic.” The promotional videos show silhouettes of destination landmarks across North America, including Seattle’s Space Needle, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Sign and New York City’s Statue of Liberty.

The Brilliant Lady is the fourth vessel in Virgin Voyages Lady Ship series and was built by the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The 140,000-ton cruise ship was originally scheduled to debut in late 2023. However, unexpected construction, supply chain issues, and staffing challenges postponed the ship’s inaugural debut. 

The three Virgin Voyages ships currently in service: The Scarlet Lady, Valient Lady, and Resilient Lady offer year-round itineraries in the Caribbean and seasonal programs in the Mediterranean.
