From the bottom of our hearts, we truly appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility during this difficult time for our friends and neighbors on Grand Bahama Island. We know there are many questions surrounding our future sailing schedule. While we are dedicated to the humanitarian effort currently taking place onboard Grand Celebration, and doing all that we can to help support the rebuilding effort, we are equally committed to resuming our commercial operations as soon as possible, as tourism provides an incredible lifeline to residents across the islands. We are working closely with our Bahamian partners to assess options and expect to have an announcement soon, which will be shared on our website and social media platforms. In the meantime, please contact customer service at 800-374-4363 to discuss any specific questions you may have. Thank you all, again, for your support of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line.
