Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has announced that to show its gratitude to essential workers for their dedication and service during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has launched a new program called the Hometown Heroes initiative.
Essential workers across the United States can book a free escape to Grand Bahama Island departing between July 22, 2021 and September 30, 2021 with a second guest who will pay a special price of $129.
The Hometown Heroes offer is not combinable with other offers, but the line’s popular Kids Sail FREE can be applied for those who are parents.
“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. We want to say, ‘thank you’ by offering a free and relaxing getaway to Grand Bahama Island, our second home,” said Oneil Khosa, CEO of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line.
“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.”
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is the only cruise line to offer two-night getaways to Grand Bahama Island. Sailing aboard its ship Grand Classica from West Palm Beach, Florida, essential workers and their families will have access to a full-service spa, interactive kids' programs, various entertainment options, and a casino.
The vessel also features a variety of dining options, including The Rock Grill where guests can cook their own meals on hot lava rocks, as well as Admiral's Steak & Seafood featuring dishes like Angus Beef Carpaccio and Peruvian Sea Bass.
Bahamas Paradise has implemented a series of health and safety protocols to protect both guests and crew onboard, including increased sanitation, reduced capacity, fresh air ventilation, and social distancing.
