New Bahamas ‘Cruise & Stay’ Option Available

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is inviting agents to offer their clients the ultimate getaway this summer through a unique “Cruise & Stay” package.

Starting at US$279 per person, the package – valid only on bookings with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line – includes a three-night package featuring a round-trip, two-night cruise from Palm Beach to Grand Bahama Island, and a one (or more) night stay at one of four beach resorts.

“At Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, we understand the vital role that travel advisors play in the success of our business and we are proud to introduce yet another tool that will exceed the expectations of their clients and increase repeat bookings,” said Francis Riley, senior vice-president, sales and marketing, of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line. “Through our innovative Cruise & Stay Program, it’s easier than ever to provide clients with a getaway to fit their schedules, needs and budget – giving them more experiences for their money.”

With the new program, guests spend one night aboard Grand Classica or Grand Celebration while sailing to Grand Bahama Island. The next day, they disembark for a full day of fun and enjoy their choice of one to four nights at an island resort, exploring the tropical destination’s wonders, before spending an additional night onboard the ship as they return to Palm Beach.

Resort partners include:

Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach: Siuated on a pristine stretch of palm tree-lined shore and surrounded by lush greenery, the all-inclusive resort offers unlimited food and drinks, water sports and activities of all kids, daily and nightly entertainment.

The Grand Lucayan: Located on a stretch of white-sand beach adjacent to Port Lucaya Marketplace, the island’s popular shopping, and dining centre, this resort offers travellers the option of accommodations only with à la carte meals or upgrading to an all-inclusive option.

Pelican Bay Hotel: The family friendly Pelican Bay Hotel offers a relaxing, European-inspired setting with private harbourfront balconies, three pools and white-sand beaches. Meals are available for purchase at the resort’s dining venues.

Also, travellers booking the Cruise & Stay package have the potential to experience both ships in Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s fleet, sailing on a different ship each way. Grand Classica and Grand Celebration both feature sprawling sun decks with swimming pools, al fresco dining with sunset views; full-service spas; interactive kids’ programs; and a variety of entertainment options including nightly theatre performances, live bands and more; and the popular Par-a-Dice Casino.

This Cruise & Stay program complements the year-round two-night sailings Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line offers departing daily from Palm Beach to Grand Bahama Island.
