- 2020 - delayed delivery from the shipbuilder (due to Coronavirus)
|May 2020||Structural and Technical Issues|
The ship's inaugural cruise was planned for August 29, 2020. However, the vessel's delivery was delayed due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, also resulting in Metalships Shipyard's (in Vigo, Spain) temporary closure. When in early-May shipyard operations resumed (in reduced worker capacity), the project-involved European subcontractors didn't return due to EU's intercountry travel restrictions. For example, the ship's masts (Poland-manufactured) arrived but were not installed, as well as the interior fittings (carried out, but not completed).
The delayed delivery also resulted in major cruise itinerary program changes. The scheduled Caribbean deployment (together with the Translatlantic crossing in November 2020) was cancelled and the ship remains (through April 2021) in the Canary Islands.
