Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line acted swiftly following Hurricane Dorian, being first cruise line to dock in Freeport with more than 700,000 pounds of humanitarian aid and hosting two near-immediate humanitarian sailings to Grand Bahama, where they were first to evacuate more than 1,000 documented Bahamian residents to safety in South Florida.

Nearly 600 qualified volunteers, ship personnel, and local South Florida organizations, including Entrepreneurs’ Organization of South Florida, Mission Resolve, Bahamas Relief Cruise and The Everglades Trust, also went to work by preparing boxed lunches and delivering them to local shelters, distributing thousands of supplies, including water, food, personal hygiene products, medical equipment, generators, and dog food, and personally delivering 100 Bahamian bins that were donated from concerned family members in South Florida.

In an effort designed to further boost the Bahamas’ economy, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line also added Nassau as a second destination option for guests following the storm – introducing its unique Cruise & Stay Program there and giving travelers two ways to getaway.

Cruisers can now extend their stay on Nassau at one of several partner resorts, including Atlantis, Meliá Nassau Beach Resort, and SLS Baha Mar while experiencing personal encounters with marine life, private cabanas, premier nightlife, and luxury dining options.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, the ultimate Bahamas getaway, is the only provider of two-night cruises to Grand Bahama Island and Nassau, and the originator of the unique Cruise & Stay program, letting travelers extend their Bahamas adventure with a distinctive resort stay.
