Virgin Voyages Won’t Begin Sailings Until October

Virgin Voyages has announced that cruises won't begin until the middle of October due to an extension of its pause on operations.

Symphony of the Seas which will soon become the world’s largest cruise ship is arriving three weeks earlier than expected.

The fourth Oasis-class cruise ship is way ahead of schedule and the ship will now arrive three weeks early. Several people on social media have noticed new earlier sailings of the cruise ship. The first newly opened sailing is scheduled to depart Barcelona, Spain on March 31 and be a 5-night western Caribbean cruise. Symphony of the Seas first maiden voyage was originally scheduled to depart the Spanish port on April 21.

It seems construction methods used this time around and the experience from sister ship Harmony of the Seas which entered service in 2016 has helped in a sooner completion. The only problem is with the earlier arrival there is expected to be final touches being made during the new cruises. Some workers from the STX shipyard will likely remain onboard for a few sailings to make sure all is in order and Symphony of the Seas is fully ready for regular service.

At the moment Symphony of the Seas is at a wet dock in the STX France shipyard and in the final fitting out construction stage. We’ve been posting plenty of photos from the shipyard so readers can see how Symphony is coming along.
