Brilliant Lady Cruises

Inspired by the modern luxury of yachting and the romance of the open ocean, Virgin Voyages have created their very own boutique hotel at sea — with no kids, no ordinary experiences and no reason to stay home. Taking cues from the best international cities Brilliant Lady is a getaway at sea with the perfect balance of uptown meets downtown — where paths diverge and choice is an artistic part of the journey. Combining the warmth and luxury of a yacht with the endless options of a much larger ship, she is an elevated and intimate environment that inspires personal and experiential connection. Vibrant conversation over homemade pasta and (multiple) bottles of Chianti. Immersive performances with (elaborate) circus twists. A fitness class you’d never dream of taking (and conquering) back home. Champagne delivered right to you and your new friends with the shake of the app (seriously). Onboard experiences aim to connect you — to people, places, and (seafaring) paths you never thought to wander. Brilliant Lady is the fourth ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet.

Brilliance — which means both radiance and exceptional talent and intelligence — was purposefully chosen for the duality of its meaning. Virgin Voyages sets out, on every single sailing, to give their Sailors a radiant experience — giving you such a glowing experience that you can’t help but beam upon returning home; matched only by the luminous stars above and the glistening sea below. But her name goes far beyond the vivid, incandescent glow of the sea and the inevitable post-vacation glow that they set out to give their Sailors. Each and every one of Virgin Voyages ships rocks a beautiful and strong mermaid at its helm — and Brilliant Lady will be no different. So as they thought about the strength and resilience they've touched upon with their other mermaids, they also wanted to highlight the powerful intelligence of women across the globe.
