Following Hurricane Dorian’s devastating impact on Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line today announced a two-fold support initiative. As of today, the company is accepting monetary donations online through its partner, Mission Resolve, as well as donated supplies at its Riviera Beach warehouse.

Those who wish to donate monetarily can do so at www.MissionResolve.org. All proceeds will be directly donated to the people of Grand Bahama Island.
