SAY HELLO to Virgin’s Valiant Lady

Virgin Voyages has revealed its second ship, Valiant Lady.

With a home port in Barcelona, and visiting destinations throughout the Mediterranean, Valiant Lady will launch with three 7-night itineraries, all going on sale in December of 2019 and setting sail in May of 2021.

Styled by top global design teams, Valiant Lady will be built by the master shipbuilders of Fincantieri in Genoa, Italy and will find home port for herself in Barcelona, Spain.

A ‘RockStar Suite’ aboard Virgin’s Valiant Lady.

Home to some of the world’s best beach clubs, night clubs and yacht clubs these itineraries, typically sailed by super yachts, will play host to Valiant Lady’s voyages, all sailing from (and returning to) Barcelona’s Wharf home.

A fun feature aboard Virgin’s ships will be its signature on-demand Champagne delivery service called Shake for Champagne.

“It is never too early for champagne and there is always something to toast to while aboard Scarlet Lady. We want our Sailors to enjoy a glamorous holiday and what better way to feel like a RockStar than a sip of bubbly whenever and wherever you want it,” said Tom Mcalpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages.

When the Virgin Voyages Sailor App is shaken, a secret Virgin Voyages Champagne button is revealed and, with just one press, a bottle of Möet Chandon Impérial will be delivered to the Sailor.

WE KNOW: Ponant’s Le Lapérouse

Claire Winnel, Manager of The Cruise & Travel Authority in Terrigal, and her CLIA Cruise Accredited Senior Travel Consultant colleague, Patricia Saric, were recently invited to inspect Ponant’s renowned Le Lapérouse whilst berthed in Newcastle.

Le Laperouse in Newcastle before sailing for the Kimberley region.

Le Lapérouse is the lead ship of the Ponant Explorers-class of cruise ships operated by Ponant.

“She is an incredible vessel with just 92 staterooms and suites, and an unmistakable sense of French chic and refinement with a relaxed vibe” said Claire.

Deluxe Stateroom, Le Lapérouse.

Le Lapérouse’s spacious suites and staterooms feature large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside. Cabin categories include:

  • Deluxe Staterooms
    Area: 19 m²
  • Deluxe Suite
    Area: 27 m²
  • Grand Deluxe Suite
    Area: 45 m²
  • Prestige Stateroom
    Area: 19 m²
  • Prestige Suite
    Area: 32 m²
    apacity: Up to 3 passengers per cabin
  • Owner’s Suite
    Area: 45 m²

Claire and Patricia spent time aboard with the Ponant crew, assessing the ship’s facilities, and enjoying some suitably French champagne and nibbles to get a sense of the Ponant experience.

Claire’s pics of venues aboard Le Lapérouse.

“The facilities on this ship are stunning. It was unlike any other ship I had seen before”, advised Patricia.

“The ship’s ‘Blue Eye’ underwater lounge is remarkable. Blue Eye is the world’s first underwater ship lounge, and it’s equipped with an innovative sound system that captures the acoustics of the sea up to five kilometres away”, added Patricia.

Le Lapérouse will soon set sail, spending the winter cruise season in Western Australia’s stunning Kimberley region.
