  • delayed delivery - Aug 2022 through May 2023 (36x cruises canceled)

June 2022Structural and Technical Issues

On June 8, 2022, Virgin Voyages officially announced that Resilient Lady's inauguration is postponed, stating on its website that the decision was made due to supply chain issues (shipbuilding obstacles) and crewing challenges (USA's government regulations and restrictive COVID entry requirements) caused by the COVID crisis, as well as regional uncertainty, specifically in Eastern Europe (due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict).

As a result of the ship's delay, 36x voyages were canceled, most of which were Mediterranean roundtrips from Piraeus-Athens (Greece) and Caribbean roundtrips from San Juan (Puerto Rico).
