(PRESS RELEASE)_MIAMI, FL - December 8, 2022 - Today, Richard Branson’s premium new cruise line, Virgin Voyages, is making waves yet again and taking delivery of the brand’s third vessel: the beautiful Resilient Lady. Built from the ground up by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, Resilient Lady is a mid-size ship weighing 110,000 gross tons like her sister ships in the fleet: Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady.
Built in the Sestri Ponente shipyard in Genoa, Resilient Lady marks the brand’s third completed vessel in the span of just two years, a notable accomplishment for any brand, and an even taller task for a new company that launched just last year. On May 14, 2023, Resilient Lady will embark on her MerMaiden voyage around the Greek Isles, making stops in Santorini, Rhodes, Bodrum and Mykonos before returning to her homeport in Piraeus, Athens. The ship will sail two, eight-night itineraries including the “Greek Island Glow” with the aforementioned route, and the “Adriatic Sea and Greek Gems,” complete with calls in the beautiful cities of Split, Dubrovnik, Kotor and Corfu.
