Media Release From Bahamas Celebration
Cruise Of October 30
Last night (October 31) around 9:00pm, the Bahamas Celebration struck something when leaving Grand Bahamas Island. As a precaution, all passengers we're asked to put on life jackets and emergency steps were taken as the ship staff practices every week. No passengers were ever in any danger and everything was handled in an organized and efficient way by ship, corporate and Bahamian personnel.
The ship returned to port and passengers and were put up in accommodations in various resorts on the island. Passengers will return to Florida today through arranged plans.
The Bahamas Celebration, which was due to return to The Port of Palm Beach this morning at 7:00am, will remain in the Bahamas so any damage can be assessed. The next two Celebration cruises scheduled for today and Monday will be cancelled. All booked passengers will be notified and a refund or other arrangements will be made.
Celebration Cruise Line will issue more information if there is anything newsworthy to report. Our focus at this time in taking care of our passengers who were on the ship or had planned to be on the ship over the next few days.
