Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has revealed it will add Nassau as a port of call next month.

The news comes as the two-ship line prepares to resume commercial operations in the Bahamas on Friday – just over three weeks after Hurricane Dorian battered the archipelago.

The line currently offers two-night round-trip sailings from Palm Beach, Florida, to Grand Bahama Island.

Francis Riley, the line’s senior vice president, sales and marketing, said: “Our travel agents have been asking for a second destination for quite some time, and Nassau has frequently come up in our discussions.”

Riley added that daily cruises from Palm Beach will run alongside sailings to Nassau, Bahamas, which begin on October 12 on the line’s second ship Grand Classica.

Cruise-only prices start at $159 per person for round-trip Nassau sailings.

Departures are available to book now.

From Friday, passengers will be able to join volunteer excursions to help with the rebuilding effort on Grand Bahama Island.

Excursions must be booked in advance with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and its partners.

Riley also added: “We are incredibly appreciative of the support and flexibility of our travel partners through Hurricane Dorian.”
