A cruise line has changed their restart date on cruises to the Bahamas and is now planning on sailing one cruise ship from South Florida to the Bahamas beginning on December 18, 2020.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line will now resume cruises to the Bahamas on their Grand Classica cruise ship. Originally, the cruise line was planning on starting with Grand Celebration with Grand Classica rejoining the fleet at a later date.
The cruise line stated that the reason for Grand Classica returning first is due to the cruise ship have larger deck space and nearly 100 fewer staterooms. The vessel offers a better guest-to-space ratio so it makes sense to begin with this ship.
The ship will sail with the capacity capped at 60%. This will allow for proper social distancing between all guests and crew members.
The two night cruises to the Bahamas will depart from the Port of Palm Beach and visit Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line said that they are also planning on resuming cruises to Nassau but will announce details on those cruises on at a later date.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is the operator of two cruise ships that sail two night cruises to the Bahamas. As the only cruise line sailing out of the Port of Palm Beach, cruisers can combine the cruises with resort stays in the Bahamas that are part of the cruise line’s Cruise and Stay Packages.
Cruisers take a one night cruise to the Bahamas, stay in a resort for a few nights, and then reboard the ship and sail a one night cruise back to Florida.
