Virgin Voyages makes big change to Australia-Europe repositioning sailing

Friday, 09 Feb, 2024 0

Virgin Voyages has announced a major rerouting for Resilient Lady’s repositioning cruise due to the current conflict in the Middle East.

Concerned about potential escalations in the Red Sea region, Virgin has announced a major detour for the ship departing Australia on March 27.

Now leaving from Sydney, the repositioning cruise will sail around the coast of Africa.

It will firstly call at Eden and Fremantle (Perth) in Australia and then Mauritius en route to Africa.

After Durban and Cape Town calls, Resilient Lady sails up the western Africa coast with a port call at Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Praia (Cape Verde) before stops in Tenerife, Casablanca, Barcelona and Valletta (Malta).

The ship then calls at Santorini and Piraeus (Athens) in Greece.

Guests wishing to cancel have the option of a future cruise credit or a full refund.

All travel agent commissions will be protected, Virgin said.

“Virgin Voyages is now conducting a full review of other geographically similar repositioning voyages and linked sailings,” the cruise line said.

“We will provide an update in the coming weeks on any further changes we will need to make.”
