Virgin might be seen to be dipping their toes in on the Caribbean, with the Scarlet Lady enjoying a number of cool itineraries from Miami and typically spanning the 5-night range. However, this week they've upped the ante for their foray into the Mediterranean for 2021 where Virgin's second ship, the Valiant Lady will enjoy 7-night itineraries from Barcelona, bookable from December of this year!
After London, Barcelona is perhaps my favourite European destination. A huge variety of art in architecture, it's unbelievably accessible.
Not to mention the food is amazing. The process which goes into cultivating the local jamon Iberico is incredible in itself. If you love your taste buds, you need to go to Barcelona.
Expect Western Mediterranean itineraries featuring the Spanish islands, the Tuscan coast, South France, and even historic Gibraltar. The last one being not only of huge geopolitical interest throughout the ages, it's also host to more pubs per square mile than any other country.
Did I mention they're all adults-only cruises?
