Singapore will get an early look at Virgin Voyages’ new ship, the Resilient Lady, when she makes her way to Australia at the end of next year.

The 2770-passenger ship – the third of four planned for the Virgin Voyages’ fleet – will come with plenty of razzamatazz as she makes her way from Athens to Sydney, calling in at Mumbai. Goa, Singapore, and Bali before arriving at her home port, Station Pier in Melbourne.

The adults-only ship will carry many of the touches of Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady – the first two Virgin vessels: Rockstar suites, drag show brunches, bungee classes and an app that lets guests order champagne anywhere on the ship with the shake of a phone.

“We don’t have stuffy formalities. The ships are designed to feel like superyachts with deck hammocks and outdoor exercise space,” said Virgin Voyages president, Nirmal Saverimuttu.

There are no butlers or buffets on the ship and the biggest restaurant is 200 seats with all meals made to order.

“Australia and New Zealand was a natural extension of the brand,” Saverimuttu says. “It’s very high in the list of where consumers wanted to sail and also where consumers want to sail from.”

Resilient Lady will offer a mix of itineraries across Australia and New Zealand, ranging in length from two to 14 nights, from December 2023.
