Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente floats out Valiant Lady, Virgin ponders name for third ship

Valiant Lady takes to the water near Sestri Ponente shipyard
Virgin Voyages' Valiant Lady was floated out at Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente shipyard.

The 110,000gt sister of this year's Scarlet Lady is scheduled to debut in the Mediterranean in 2021 with seven-night voyages from Barcelona.

What to call No. 3? 

Meanwhile, blocks for the third 'lady ship' are being assembled and Virgin Voyages is pondering a name for that vessel, scheduled for May 2022 delivery.

A fourth in the series is due in late 2023.
