Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has chartered the Grand Celebration to assist with restoration of service to communities impacted by the Massachusetts gas incident. The ship will be traveling to Boston on October 1, 2018 to provide housing, if needed, for people working to restore service to thousands of homes. The Grand Celebration will resume normal cruise operations as of December 2018.
Because of this charter, the October 1 sailing on Grand Celebration and the October 2 cruise on Grand Classica are cancelled. The Grand Classica will resume its 2-night cruise schedule from the Port of Palm Beach to Grand Bahama Island beginning on Wednesday October 3, 2018. The Grand Classica will operate on the Grand Celebration’s schedule for the months of October and November. As such, the current Grand Classica sailing dates in October and November will also be cancelled.
The cruise line is currently reaching out to all guests and travel partners impacted by these schedule changes.
Individuals who are affected by the cancellations and booked directly with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line can contact their customer service department at 800-374-4363 to review all the options that are available to guests.
