Bahamas Paradise to restart on October 1
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line today announced an extended delay for its sailing operations to resume.
"We recently announced that we would finally return to sea this August – offering travelers the chance to enjoy a much-needed, two-night getaway to paradise. However, given the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) extension of its No Sail Order, we have no choice but to delay our resumption of cruise operations to October 1st, 2020," said Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line CEO Oneil Khosa.
The company remains the only cruise line in the country to receive “green status” from the CDC.
"While we are disappointed that we are not able to sail as planned, we will of course continue to work side by side with the CDC and have therefore suspended all future sailings until October 1st. We are also aware of the recent announcement from Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Munnis regarding the travel ban on travelers from the U.S., and we are prepared to make necessary changes to our sailing schedule, as needed. Until then, we will continue our preparations to return to Grand Bahama Island while keeping a close eye on the overall landscape. We look forward to welcoming guests back onboard and appreciate everyone’s patience throughout this process," the company added.
The company followed all required guidelines, including adhering to strict requirements for onboard crew members, and installed safety protocols in the industry across our fleet to protect guests and crew.
