Virgin Voyages Valiant Lady

Med Gay Bears Cruise 2023Join your bear buddies and friends on Virgin Voyages' Adults Only Cruise liner, the Valiant Lady! Experience the magic of the Med and its islands as you sail from Barcelona to the French Riviera. Explore the Tuscan countryside, revel in uncharted Ajaccian time, and give in to the medieval mysteries of Olbia. With a finale overnight in Ibiza, you'll get why we call the Med irresistible. And then after the ship returns to Barcelona, it's just a short train ride to Sitges for International Sitges Bears Week, the Number 1 Bears event in Europe! Bears, Admirers, Bear-Adjacent, and well, just plain ol’ fun-loving guys are all welcome! Join us as we set sail on this new amazing cruise line.

Welcome aboard Virgin Voyages, the new sailing experience that's bringing about an 'Epic Sea Change for All'. This experience is a lot of things, but definitely not a cruise. Instead, expect a voyage that cultivates curiosity, encourages experience and advocates adventure. With Virgin Voyages, you're never just a passenger – you're a sailor.

 

Mediterranean Gay Bears Cruise

 

Virgin Voyages offers a cheeky and cheerful approach to service, as well as an inclusive approach to sea travel that removes those pesky add-ons. Sailors will enjoy food at the 20+ restaurants onboard (at no added cost). Free fitness clases and free wifi (so you can share your favourite holidays snaps whilst living for the moment!). Aimed at providing a transformative experience through a liberal dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’, the Virgin Voyages ideology places the ocean and its role in both personal and global wellbeing at centre stage.

 

Valiant Lady Gay Bears Cruise

 

Virgin Voyages Brand New Valiant Lady

Virgin Voyages' second ship due to set sail March 2022. Be one of the first sailors to experience this revolutionary ship design where interior spaces were curated by world-renowned interior designers Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio, New York’s Roman and Williams, Concrete Amsterdam and Softroom.

The Valiant Lady has pulled out all the stops to become a floating design icon. From the VIP top deck, club lounge and sky rooms through to that unique tattoo studio, you’ll find that no detail has been overlooked. You’ll be cruising the Caribbean in a ship that’s full of theatrical spaces and nautical touches, spiced up with a sense of drama and fun. And not a beige bedspread in sight.

 

Valiant Lady pool deck

 

Luxury Ship Features
If you’re in the Caribbean, you better make absolutely sure you’re making the most of every sun-kissed second. The Dock, the ship’s exclusive outdoor lounge, is where you can find total peace and tranquillity, with just the gentle sound of the waves and the occasional chatter of dolphins as they play in the bow waves. Feeling a little more active? The Athletic Club is the spot to head to, with the world’s largest daybed (they never do anything by halves onboard the Valiant Lady) to relax on when you need a breather from all that chilling out.

At night, the stars emerge with the glitz and glamour of The Manor nightclub. This dazzling club tips a nod to Richard Branson, charting his history in the music industry, and then celebrating that heritage by banging out some insane tunes until the small hours. If you want a break from the beat, head out on deck where you can gaze out at the ocean while a billion stars shine. This is the stuff memories are made of (oops, looks like another trip to Squid Ink, then…).

 

Valiant Lady Razzle Dazzle

 

Fuelling up on Food
No luxury ship is complete without food, food, and more food, and the Valiant Lady doesn’t short-change you when it comes to chowing down. There’s over 20 choices of meals whenever you’re peckish – there’s no set menus or enforced meal times here. Whether you want a healthy snack at 6am or a midnight feast, the crew will cater for you.

First up, there’s Razzle Dazzle, where you’ll discover your inner vegan. Or, try the gloriously opulent Pink Algarve, serving Mexican fusion with all the trimmings.

And wait, what’s this? Street food onboard a ship? At the Valiant Lady’s Galley, you’ll find eight different food stalls selling everything from tacos to sushi, burgers to bento boxes and noodles. You may be cruising the Caribbean, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world can’t join in.

 

Valiant Lady Spa

 

Wellness and Zen Time on your Adult Voyage
There’s a concept at Virgin Voyages – Vitamin Sea. There’s nothing quite like the ocean to restore that inner wellness we all crave, so onboard you’ll get the time to re-energise with some state-of-the-art activities in the Crow’s Nest.

You can detox with sunrise or sunset yoga classes, or retox with a few rounds in the boxing ring. The B-Complex gym space gets your heart pumping with some serious cardio, or go for some zen time in Redemption, the Valiant Lady’s onboard spa.

Wallow about in glorious mud pools, get your chakras aligned on a quartz bed, or zone out with a spa treatment. Be warned, though: at night this mermaid’s hideaway transforms into a killer club, where the resident DJ gets things buzzing with some serious tunes.

 

Valiant Lady - The Manor

 

Valiant Lady entertainment - mind-blowing revelry
Grab your glad rags, throw on your dancing shoes and be prepared to be amazed by some of the best cruise ship entertainment on the high seas. Virgin Voyages are going back to their musical roots with on board entertainment that’ll have you boogying until the sun comes up. Choose from a line-up of brand new, original shows and gigs developed by some of the best entertainers in the business. Like everything else on the Valiant Lady, cruise entertainment doesn’t get much better than this.

Start things off with a visit to the exclusive Beach Club at Bimini in the Bahamas, then just keep levelling up with an on-board party at the Manor, the Valiant Lady’s exclusive nightclub. Bag some front-row seats in the Red Room and be prepared to laugh your socks off or just stare slack-jawed in amazement at 21st-century magic and mayhem. The festival vibe keeps the curious entertained, and the cravers coming back for more. After a glorious meal and the best cocktails, it’s time to dance until dawn as the Valiant Lady steams her way to your next port of call.

 

Valiant Lady cabin

 

Slumber at Sea in Luxury Cabins
Time for some snoozing, and Virgin Voyages have made sure that the cabins maintain that gloriously indulgent luxury you’ll find all over the Valiant Lady. Tom Dixon’s had a hand here too, designing the RockStar suites with flair and individuality, but with absolutely no compromise on comfort. All of the RockStar suites are on Deck 15, just under Richard’s Rooftop (RockStar VIPs get exclusive access to the club).

Book a RockStar suite and you get a host of VIP extras including airport transfers, luggage assistance and a private walk down the terminal pathway on arrival, as well as anytime boarding and early booking for special events. If you want to feel like a real rock star, this is your chance.

Barcelona gay cruise

Days 1 & 8 - Barcelona, Spain
With a home port only steps from Barcelona's diverse neighborhoods and the famed urban beach of La Barceloneta, Sailors will uncover hidden secrets from local market cooking classes to modern and historic art in this vibrant seaside, architecturally stunning European city.

Founded by Romans in the first century BC, Barcelona is the vibrant capital of Catalonian Spain. Many of the worlds finest treasures can be seen in Barcelonas museums and monuments. Romanesque and Gothic frescoes and treasures can be enjoyed at the Catalan Art Museum. Among the most treasured sites is Gaudis masterpiece, The Sagrada Familia.

 

Virgin gay bears cruise - Toulon, France

Day 2 - Toulon, France
The French Riviera, or Côte d’Azur — as the locals call it — is the crown jewel of the south of France. Its quaint yet world-renowned towns grant access to umbrella-dotted beaches and the lavender-rich countryside — making the French Riviera an alluring hotspot. But Toulon, found in the heart of the Riviera, often gets overlooked.

 

Mediterranean gay bears cruise - Marina di Carrara, Italy

Day 3 - Marina di Carrara, Italy
At first glance, you might think the snow-capped-looking marble mountains of Marina di Carrara are the actual snow-capped Alps. And frankly, no one could blame you. The bright white marble mountain tops contrasted against Marina di Carrara’s sandy beaches are almost like something out of a Renaissance painting — it’s that surreal.

 

Corsica gay bears cruise

Day 4 - Ajaccio, Corsica
As a French commune only seven miles from the Italian island of Sardinia, Corsica is a blend of French and Italian culture. The locals feel more Italian than French but enjoy francophile staples like boulangeries and charcuterie. The capital port city, Ajaccio, sits on the western side of a natural paradise with astonishing peaks and sprawling beaches.

 

Sardinia gay cruise

Day 5 - Olbia, Sardinia
Tucked into a sheltered harbor on the northeastern coast of Sardinia hides Olbia — a port town with access to top-secret beaches and enigmatic archaeological sites. Olbia gives way to the Costa Smeralda, a network of luxury seaside towns with emerald-like waters and white sandy beaches where the rich and famous come to play. It’s also a stone’s throw away from ancient Nuragic ruins that have mystified archaeologists for centuries.

 

Ibiza gay cruise

Days 6 & 7 - Ibiza, Spain
Beach all day. Party all night. Whether you're visiting Ibiza for its sun-soaked days or wild nightclubs, you're in for a treat. Thanks to its iconic nightclubs and star-studded DJ sets, Ibiza earned its reputation as the party capital of the world. So, Ibiza’s true beach-bum personality and quiet seaside streets might surprise you. Once you get to know its free-spirited culture, sandy coves and historic Dalt Vila, you’ll have a clearer picture of the most talked-about Balearic island.

 

Sitges Bears Week 2023

Post-Cruise - Sitges Bears Week 2023
