Bahamas Paradise

Bahamas Paradise is a casual cruise line with very low cruise fares in order to attract the casual cruiser or the first time cruiser, that doesn’t have any standards or doesn’t require any additional services. Due to the age of their ships, it also doesn’t offer any extra amenities and crew members constantly complain on social media about the poor living conditions and food quality.

 

The cruise line was formed after Celebration Cruise Line ceased operations following a grounding incident that left its only ship, the Bahamas Celebration damaged beyond repair. Former Celebration Cruise Line executives formed Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and purchased the Costa Celebration to take over the route formerly operated by the Bahamas Celebration.

 

On September 19, 2017 FEMA chartered the ship for a 90-day period through December 2017 to house the National Guard in St. Thomas, which was devastated by Hurricane Irma. It was announced in December 2017 that the cruise line purchased the Costa neoClassica. It entered service on 13 April 2018 as the Grand Classica.
