Virgin Voyages is the latest cruise line moving sailings abroad as the timeline to resume cruising in U.S. waters remains unclear.

"Virgin Voyages has been looking forward to sailing, and we're so excited to announce our plans to sail from the UK," said Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, in a statement.

The cruise line had a slow start due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which squashed Virgin's plans to launch in April 2020. But after multiple delays, its first ship, Scarlet Lady, will make its debut in August in the United Kingdom with a series of voyages open to residents of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Scarlet Lady will be departing from Portsmouth, England, with all passengers and crew required to be fully vaccinated.
