Resilient Lady ReviewsView Cruise Deals
This was our first cruise with Virgin Voyages Resilient Lady from Piraeus, Athens around the Greek Islands to Santorini, Rhodes, Mykonos and Bodrum, Turkey. We have been on other cruise ships with another company. This cruise was on a completely different level! It was amazing! The whole ambience of the ship was so relaxing with plenty of space and no problems finding seats or sun beds even on sea days. We loved our cabin with a balcony and great hammock and being able to operate lights, TV, temperature and open/close curtains using a tablet! Everything is booked via an app which was so useful! Instead of having one main restaurant there are lots of smaller ones but you do need to book the times for these. The food was exceptional! We loved Extra Virgin (upmarket Italian), Pink Agave (Mexican), The Wake (steak & seafood), The Test kitchen, Razzle Dazzle. We also loved the Mediterranean dock and dock house for lunch for the mezze. The crew and service were exceptional throughout every area and were all so friendly and make time to chat with passengers. The organisation also was exceptional. You can request anything through the app and within minutes of asking if they had any orthopaedic shaped pillows and extra clothes hangers they appeared in our cabin. Entertainment is different to other cruise ships and had a contemporary feel about it. We really enjoyed all we saw. The Scarlett night was such fun where the whole ship turns red, giant octopuses appear everywhere and the deck party was great. The places we travelled to were great. There were so many things on offer that you could do on the ship with a strong emphasis on health and well-being activities. We definitely would love to travel with Virgin Voyages again! IGLU were very good to book through
Thank you for a wonderful cruise, we have just got off the boat and are in the transfer to the airport at the moment. Everything was excellent, very professional and smooth, from the airport, transfers and of course the cruise with Virgin itself. If you need a customer reference or recommendation please let me know.
Absolutely fantastic cruise! I enjoyed every moment and I’m looking forward to my next voyage!
Loved it - will definitely be booking another Virgin Voyage - Booked with Iglu, hotel and transfers all went well - the hotel was in a bit of a lonely area, but the hotel itself was clean and comfortable. Lots of people on the same cruise staying, so disappointing that the hotel bar closed around 9-9.30pm on the second night, Saturday, due to lack of staff we were told. I thought the excursions on board were expensive as was the Spa. At times some wines shown on the menu's were not available which was a little frustrating, but nevertheless, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Loved the itinerary of the cruise, the fact that it was Adults only and that there were no formal nights. Food was very good, can't wait to go on another voyage.
Great staff, fantastic ship, brilliant holiday.
The Virgin Voyages cruise was booked to celebrate my wife and my 25th wedding anniversary. The experience was amazing and we are hooked. Whilst we have other trips we want to take, I am sure we will want to do at least one cruise a year once both my wife and I are fully retired. We travelled as a family covering 3 generations; my parents (in their eighties), myself, my wife and our 2 daughters (both in their 20s) . All of us found the whole experience wonderful. From the booking process and advice by Iglu staff to the taxi arrangements where we were met at each destination and transferred between airport, hotel, sea port to meet the cruise ship, and eventually back to the airport for our return flight home. All three generations had a wonderful time and were made to feel special. Thank you so much.
We had a wonderful time in Athens and on the cruise. The hotel in Athens was lovely and very close to the hop on hop off bus. The cruise was fantastic, all staff were friendly and helpful. The ship was very clean and the food was fantastic. All the transfers organised for us, turned up on time. The only criticism we have were the flights. The only airport available to us was Heathrow which is a long drive for us; coming home we had nine hours before our BA flight. We did not realise until we were at the airport, there were two earlier flights we could have taken. We wish we had queried this earlier as it was too late on the day. I would definitely recommend Iglu to organise a cruise again for us.
