Join seasoned sailor Liam McDermott & new to cruising Helen Skiera as they discuss their latest project onboard virgin voyages ship Resilient Lady 

The Resilient Lady is the third of four Virgin ships to have been launched since 2021

Virgin Voyages is a new, adult only cruise line that’s leaning towards experience based entertainment offerings.

Liam is the HOD that supports the delivery of several large scale productions across multiple venues, by multiple external creative teams on multiple ships.

Helen is joining the ship as part of the creative team for 'Mind Mangler', which will be one of the shows in the main theatre space on board.
