Bahamas Paradise to be back in service by August 28
"Our current plan is to resume cruises on August 28th, 2020," the company stated.
“Upon announcing that we would resume cruising in late July, we were thrilled to see a great deal of demand, demonstrating that there is a strong appetite amongst travelers for our unique short-cruise ‘microcation’ product. At this time, we remain the only cruise line in the country to have received a “green status” from the CDC on our No Sail Response plan, meaning we have met all requirements in providing a safe environment for our crew members to work and disembark via non-commercial travel," said Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line CEO Oneil Khosa.
"Over the past few weeks, we’ve continued preparations to return to Grand Bahama Island while keeping an eye on the overall landscape, which continues to evolve. In recent days, amidst a spike in COVID-19 cases in many states across the country, we’ve seen mounting pressures to modify reopening plans and consideration of the return of stay-at-home orders," the company stated.
The company plans to continue sailing with its Grand Celebration first, and then bring the Grand Classica back to the mix as operations ramp up. The ships sell fast cruises from Palm Beach, for two days.
