In 2024/25, Virgin Voyages will bring back Resilient Lady to Australia for her second season, expanding her itineraries to include additional cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.
New ports and routes include Broome, Albany, Adelaide, Newcastle, Mooloolaba, Port Douglas, Eden, and Kangaroo Island, giving guests fifteen options.
“We’re super stoked,” he said with enthusiasm. We are already committed to bringing the ship back for a second season because “the response has been amazing, our travel agent community are getting behind us, and demand is definitely all going in the right direction. “Thanks to the dedication of our First Mate community, we know that Season 1 is going to be spectacular, and we have the chance to return for a second, said Vice President of International Sales Shane Riley.
In October, the Resilient Lady will begin her 44-night repositioning voyage from Athens to Australia, with stops planned in Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, and Bali. Virgin’s worldwide expansion, which includes a second Australian season, was announced today with the help of US$550 million in additional finance from Ares Management.
Tom McAlpin, Virgin’s current CEO, is retiring, and Nirmal Saverimuttu, currently the company’s President and Chief Experience Officer, will take over the role. Virgin is adding 27 new routes and 19 new destinations to accommodate its growing customer base.
Unanticipated building, supply chain, and staffing issues have delayed the launch of Brilliant Lady, the cruise line said.
