WHY IT RATES: Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is turning lemons into lemonade with this switch of destination. Bimini may not be the originally-intended port-of-call, but it has plenty to offer vacationers. -Michael Isenbek, TravelPulse Senior Editor
Beginning with its Oct. 15 cruise, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is making Bimini, Bahamas its new port of call while Grand Bahama Island cleans up from the recent major storm. Bahamas Paradise’s MV Grand Celebration will offer two-night cruises and longer duration cruise & resort stay packages at the new and highly rated Hilton at Resorts World Bimini.
The pristine and historical island of Bimini was a favorite getaway of Ernest Hemingway and world-renowned for its beautiful blue water and tremendous aquatic life. Whether relaxing at the resort, snorkeling above the colorful coral reef, being adventurous and swimming with sharks or being a shark at the expansive casino, there’s lot to do on the island.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is offering two very special deals for cruisers. On most weekday sailings this fall, passengers can book any ocean view cabin for just $129 per person. Four-night cruise & Hilton resort stay packages start at just $249 per person this fall. The ship departs at 5:30 p.m. out of the Port of Palm Beach and sails every other day of the week.
Reservations can be made by calling 800-374-4361.
