Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has announced new details on the relaunch of their website and the planned resumption of sailing operations. Bookings are now open for sailings starting on July 2, 2021.
“The past year has been incredibly challenging for the cruise industry and as an independent, family-owned and operated boutique cruise line, this has been particularly difficult for us. That said, we are pleased to announce that our website is now live and accepting bookings for sailings beginning July 2nd, when Grand Classica will make her much-anticipated return to the Bahamas", said Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line CEO Oneil Khosa.
The cruise line is returning with two-night voyages between Palm Beach, Florida and Freeport, Grand Bahama Island. The itineraries are the same as the line sailed before the global pandemic. Before, the line had two ships that were running the route — Grand Classica and Grand Celebration. During the pandemic, the line sold Grand Celebration, which was originally Carnival Celebration with Carnival Cruise Line.
A Quick & Easy Getaway to Paradise
"I am incredibly proud of our entire team for their efforts over the past year and immensely appreciative of the Sheehan family, who have worked tirelessly to chart a course for Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s future. We have worked, collectively and in collaboration with our partners in the Bahamas, at the CDC and elsewhere, to carefully and thoughtfully prepare for our return to Grand Bahama Island. Since the initial outbreak of COVID-19 we have remained one of the few cruise lines that reported no cases of the virus onboard our ships, and we have worked to install the highest safety protocols onboard Grand Classica, which is now well-suited to fulfill the needs of our guests’ and crew. Our website now offers a more streamlined experience for our customers, including an updated booking engine and new FAQs around the overall cruising experience."
In addition to the two-night cruises, travelers have the option to extend their vacation and spend a few nights on Grand Bahama Island. Guests can book four to six-night all-inclusive “Cruise & Stay” packages through the cruise line, which includes a stay at one of its partner resort properties. This means that the cruise to the island and the cruise back will actually be two separate voyages that are one night each, as well as two to four-night stay in the Bahamas.
"We also want to thank our partners, crew, the Bahamian government, the travel advisor community and our loyal guests for their support and patience during an unprecedented year. We are ready to return to the waters and look forward to welcoming guests back onboard in July!”
