WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – July 20, 2021 Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, the originator of the two-night cruise to the Bahamas, is extending its gratitude to essential workers for their dedication and service during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic with its new Hometown Heroes initiative. Essential workers nationwide can book a FREE escape to Grand Bahama Island – departing between July 22, 2021 and September 30, 2021 – with a second guest who is paying a special price of $129.* Though not combinable with other offers, the cruise line’s popular Kids Sail FREE can be applied for those who are parents – making this a safe, wonderful and affordable getaway for the whole family.

“Essential workers have always been heroes, putting their lives at risk daily to help others, but the COVID-19 pandemic has put even more strain on those on the front lines and we are so appreciative of their sacrifices,” Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line CEO Oneil Khosa said. “We want to say, ‘thank you’ by offering a free and relaxing getaway to Grand Bahama Island, our second home. With our updated health and safety measures in place, we are able to offer essential workers and their families a stress-free, micro-cation option that will allow them to return to work refreshed and recharged.”

The ship features unique dining venues – all of which exemplify the line’s comfortable luxury appeal – including The Rock Grill, an unforgettable dining experience where guests can cook their own meals using hot lava rocks, and Admiral’s Steak & Seafood, featuring mouth-watering dishes like Angus Beef Carpaccio and Peruvian Sea Bass.

As the fight against coronavirus is not over, the cruise line has implemented a series of protocols to ensure the health and safety of guests and crew onboard and ashore.
