Virgin Voyages premiere their 'Leading Lady Ship' on maiden call to Dover
Two icons came together today as Dover became the first port in the world to host the 'Leading Lady Ship' of Richard Branson's latest venture, Virgin Voyages. The first of a fleet of four 'Lady Ships', the Scarlet Lady sailed serenely past the White Cliffs of Dover to arrive at the Port of Dover at 6am this morning.
Dover is the host venue for a series of spectacular events to premiere Virgin Voyages' 'Leading Lady Ship' to the world's travel industry and media over the next four days.
Virgin Voyages has built strong links with Dover, with many of its crew undertaking their training at the Maritime Skills Academy in Whitfield, owned and operated by the Viking Maritime Group.
Virgin Voyages currently has four ships on order, due for delivery in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
The Port of Dover is the busiest cruise port in the south east of England and plays host to many of the world's leading cruise lines with two dedicated cruise terminals.
