Most cruisers and everyone in Florida spent this week glued to the news because a hurricane is headed this way. The folks over at Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line saw the silver lining of this dark cloud and is helping people in Palm Beach and surrounding areas get out of dodge before the storm with a cruise leaving West Palm Beach today, Friday August 30th at 4pm.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is welcoming those looking to evacuate West Palm Beach and the surrounding areas, or simply seeking an alternative to remaining on land during the storm, onboard its previously scheduled Friday evening Grand Celebration departure.  The cruise fare for this sailing will be discounted to $69 per person, per day, plus tax.  Passengers must reserve their cruise in advance and embark prior to 4:00 p.m. Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line will provide guests with their itinerary upon arrival at the port.

Safer at Sea

Oneil Khosa, CEO of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, explained how the line is making safety a paramount.

“The safety and security of our passengers and crew members is of upmost importance at all times.  With this modified sailing schedule, we are mirroring our successful and well-received evacuation cruise efforts from Hurricane Irma in 2017,” he said. “We will continue to closely monitor the situation with Hurricane Dorian and navigate according to the latest conditions and advisories, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for our passengers.”
