WEST PALM BEACH — After a 16-month pause, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is finally back in the water, with the Grand Classica setting sail for Grand Bahama Island on July 24.
The ship, departing from the Port of Palm Beach, marked the line’s resumption of commercial operations and the return of its popular two-night ‘micro-cation’ cruise vacations.
The Grand Classica previously conducted a test cruise on June 25 with fully vaccinated passengers onboard, a requirement by the CDC for cruise lines to resume operations.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has implemented extensive cleanliness protocols in an effort to ensure the health and safety of all passengers and crew. Though the line has not gone so far as to require proof of vaccination for all guests, it does recommend that “if you are eligible, get fully vaccinated for COVID-19” and wait two weeks after receiving a second dose to travel. It also says that “if a threshold of COVID-19 is detected onboard the ship, the voyage will be ended immediately” and that the ship will return to the port of embarkation.
