It’s a triumphant week in cruise with Sir Richard Branson welcoming Resilient Lady into Australian waters.

The third ship from Branson’s Virgin Voyages fleet will homeport Down Under and she will be based out of Melbourne.

The ship made her grand entrance into Sydney Harbour at 2pm. In true Branson style, the Virgin Group founder met the ship in a classic wooden speedboat as she sailed through the heads.

Branson guided the Resilient Lady through the Harbour towards Circular Quay where she will be anchored for two nights before she makes her way down to Melbourne.
