Cruise Ship to House First Responders in St. Thomas Through December

Cruise News – Sept. 19, 2017

MV Grand Celebration, owned and operated by Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, will be heading to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands at the request of FEMA. The chartered ship will have responsibility for housing the National Guard first responders as they help to rebuild the lives of individuals and create some structure after the devastation left behind by Hurricane Irma.

The humanitarian mission is expected to start with the ship’s arrival in St. Thomas on Saturday, September 23, 2017, and last through the latter half of December. The cruise line will resume normal cruise operations beginning Saturday, December 23, 2017, with 2-night cruises between the Port of Palm Beach and Grand Bahama Island. The ship has 750 cabins and capacity of up to 1,900 passengers.

“We feel badly about this 90-day disruption, but believe the extensive needs of the St. Thomas people to be of greater importance at this time,” said Oneil Khosa, CEO of the cruise line.

Individuals who booked directly with the cruise line for cruises through December 21 can contact Bahamas Paradise’s customer service department at (800) 374-4363 to review all the options that are available to guests. Direct cruise line customers can receive a full refund or reschedule their cruise with a $100 onboard credit. Other booked guests should contact their travel providers.
