Bahamas Paradise Cruise to Resume for Mother’s Day
To say we’re a bit baffled is an understatement. Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, an operator of two small, older ships originally from Carnival Cruise Line announced that it will resume sailing on Mother’s Day Weekend.
The cruise line sails from Port of Palm Beach, located in South Florida and sails two different itineraries to both Nassau and Grand Bahama on two ships.
In an announcement from the cruise lines CEO Oneil Khosa:
At Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, the wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our top priority. While we understand that this news is disappointing for many of our valued guests, we believe that further suspension is necessary to ensure their continued safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are in communication with all guests booked on a canceled sailing, as well as with our travel advisor partners, and we are offering a 125 percent Future Cruise Credit for all guests booked on a canceled sailing. We wish everyone the very best at this time and look forward to providing you a better way to getaway again soon.”
While we believe that the cruise line is interested in sailing again, and it’s ships have been sitting idle in port, it may be a bit too soon since the “peak” of the curve for COVID-19 infection is still a couple of weeks out in Florida.
After the announcement, Bahamas Paradise Cruise line updated its policy for cancellations allowing for automatic Future Cruise Credits (FCC) to be issued for 125% of the cruise value, allowing guests to rebook their cruises by December 31, 2021.
