Virgin Voyages: This cruise line just canceled its latest ship launch

Virgin Voyages' Resilient Lady  (Courtesy Virgin Voyages)As summer heats up, the travel industry is struggling to cope — and one company has seen the writing on the wall, canceling the launch of a new cruise ship.

Virgin Voyages, the much-anticipated brand which has vowed to revolutionize the cruise industry, has postponed the launch of its third cruise ship, Resilient Lady.

The ship was due to debut in August, operating out of Piraeus (for Athens) in Greece in summer, and San Juan, Puerto Rico in winter.

Instead, the company has delayed its launch until May 2023.

Customers who’d booked a sailing have been promised refunds of up to 200% refund for a future cruise, as well as some expenses.
