Virgin Voyages, Sir Richard Branson’s renowned cruise line, created history with the inaugural summer sailing season of Resilient Lady in Sydney. The superyacht-inspired cruise ship received a spectacular welcome from Branson, who greeted it in a wooden speedboat before scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge. From the bridge summit, Branson welcomed Resilient Lady to Circular Quay, marking the ship’s first arrival at the Overseas Passenger Terminal.
The event, captured by helicopters and drones, showcased Branson’s pioneering spirit and the Virgin brand’s penchant for iconic moments, making Resilient Lady’s debut in Sydney truly unforgettable. Virgin Voyages is set to redefine cruising in Australia with its unique adult-focused offerings, following its recognition as the No.1 large cruise line in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2023 Readers Choice Awards. Resilient Lady will spend two nights in Sydney before embarking on her Aussie MerMaiden voyage to Melbourne, Burnie, and Hobart.
