Cruise Line Eyes June 10 For Bahamas Sail Restart

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has confirmed that sailings to this nation will resume on June 13 for its Grand Celebration vessel, and on July 10 with the Grand Classica.

“We appreciate the support of our valued guests, partners, regulatory agencies, staff and crew during this challenging time,” said Oneil Khosa, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s chief executive. “We are utilising this time to ensure that we are ready for our guests once we resume cruising.

“Travellers will be seeking a quick and safe getaway once leisure travel fully restores, and we look forward to welcoming them onboard for a unique, short-cruise getaway to paradise.” The cruise line’s vessels sail from Florida to both Grand Bahama and Nassau.

Confirming that it is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 fall-out, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line said all guests booked on a cancelled sailing will receive a 125 percent future cruise credit through its updated Sail with Ease Policy.

Future cruise credits will automatically update in the cruise line’s system, and guests are only required to call customer service to transfer their cruise to any future sailing date through December 31, 2021.

While it is encouraging all impacted guests to take advantage of the future cruise credit, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line said those who wish to receive a refund are entitled to 100 percent of their two-night cruise or cruise and stay package price.

You have got to be kidding---Bringing thousands of tourists from God knows where is a receipt for disaster. All the "lockdowns" etc that we have been doing will go up in smoke. Please tell me that the PM will not allow them to commence cruises in June when we have been trying so hard to hold down the crisis!

For real, they must be out of their minds. Unfortunately, the cruise industry is going to take one of the hardest hits economically with this pandemic. Secondly, Who would I want to get on a cruise ship with thousands of passengers in a confined space, and, no less, out to sea without a proper medical facility onboard?. Bahamas PLEASE don't do it.......we are making strides I feel with our current handling of the situation

It would probably depend on the fee pocketed!

None of our ports or islands should be opened to the cruise ship companies until a tried and tested effective vaccine for covid-19 has been developed and all passengers and crew members on each cruise ship (without exception) are required to show satisfactory proof of inoculation before disembarking the ship and gaining entry to our country. And the same must apply to all visitors who arrive by air travel.

I am a bit concerned about vaccine requirements for all.
