About Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line (soon to be Margaritaville At Sea) Cruises

In April 2022, Bahamas Paradise will rebrand as Margaritaville at Sea.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line launched in 2015 as the only cruise line that offers two-night, full-service cruises to the Bahamas that can be combined with resort stays on Grand Bahama Island. The line's sole ship, Grand Classica, sails roundtrip from West Palm Beach, Florida. A former vessel, Grand Celebration, left the fleet in late 2020.
