Virgin Voyages has revealed that the fourth of its cruise ships will be named Brilliant Lady in homage to “the powerful intelligence of women around the world”.
The cruise line has not yet confirmed when the much-anticipated ship will set sail on her maiden voyage or itineraries, though it promised that “Brilliant Lady’s mermaid, destinations and itinerary will be announced soon.”
A statement from the company said: “By naming the ship Brilliant Lady, we also wanted to highlight the strong intelligence of women around the world. Brilliant Lady represents the smart, thoughtful, pushing boundaries spirit of women around the world – unafraid to own their intelligence, aware of its importance and confident in touch with their own self esteem.
Mr Richard Branson ‘s cruise line debuted in 2020 when it unveiled its first ship, Scarlet Lady, but unfortunately her maiden voyage was delayed to 2021 due to the impact of the Covid pandemic, which at the time resulted in a ban on cruise holidays in a number of countries.
