A cruise line has begun offering a season pass that allows for unlimited cruises for the rest of 2023 for one flat fee. Owners of the season pass will also be able to bring a guest for free.
Margaritaville at Sea’s new season pass starts at $899 and allows for unlimited cruises through the end of 2023. The Ultimate Paradise Pass opened for sale at 9 a.m. this morning and there are only 500 passes available to be sold.
“This is completely new to the cruise industry. Now, passengers can buy a season pass to paradise and enjoy long walks on the beach throughout the year,” said Kevin Sheehan, Jr. President and CEO of Margaritaville at Sea. “Thanks to our unique two-night itinerary, the groundbreaking Ultimate Paradise Pass will give avid cruisers a new way to experience unlimited getaways to The Bahamas. It’s perfect for a quick escape after a stressful work week or for a whole new adventure at sea.”
Along with unlimited cruises for passholders and their guest, Ultimate Paradise Pass benefits include welcome amenities, exclusive sneak peeks of new onboard activities, and behind-the-scenes access on certain sailings.
Passholders also have the option to add upgrades, packages, and onshore excursions at the time of booking at a 10% discount.
The season pass from Margaritaville at Sea includes the following:
- Unlimited non-consecutive 2-night sailings thru December 31, 2023
- Valid for Double Occupancy—bring a friend for free
- Must book 24-72 hours before departure
- Best available Ocean View or Inside Stateroom—assigned at terminal check-in

It is also recommended Ultimate Paradise Pass passholders travel with one other guest (guest fare included with Ultimate Paradise Pass) in a double-occupancy ocean view or inside stateroom.
“As far as restrictions go, being forced to bring along a friend for free is not bad,” joked Sheehan. “And you can bring along someone different every time you cruise!”
