Margaritaville at Sea has begun offering new three-night itineraries to give guests slightly longer cruises than its usual two-night schedules to the Bahamas.
Perfect for weekend getaways, the new sailings for next year are in response to guests’ feedback from last August, which revealed a demand for longer voyages.
From August to November 2024, Margaritaville’s itineraries offer roundtrip sailings from Palm Beach, Florida, that leave on Fridays and arrive on Mondays. This allows passengers to spend an extra day at sea before visiting the Grand Bahama Island for 9.5 hours.
According to the cruise line, the longer time onboard will allow passengers to “fully explore the Margaritaville at Sea experience.”
These cruises will take place onboard the Margaritaville at Sea Paradise. Originally made for Costa Cruises, its weekend voyages combine brunch with live music, themed nights, and deck parties. The ship also has a casino, spa, theater, fitness center, pools, and many shops.
Capable of accommodating 1,300 passengers, Paradise was built in the early 90s when it was originally christened as the Classica. It was refurbished in 2022.
Guests can expect new dining and entertainment options like the JWB Steakhouse and the Five o’Clock Somewhere Bar.
Other cruise options from Margaritaville
The new voyages will complement Margaritaville’s other cruises—two-night sailings that leave on Mondays and Wednesdays. It also offers Cruise and stay packages that allow guests to combine a single-night cruise to and from Freeport, Florida, with resort accommodations in the Bahamas.
Cruise line Margaritaville at Sea was established in 2014 as Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line. It was renamed last year when it became part of Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville brand.
Last month, Margaritaville acquired its second cruise ship, the Margaritaville at Sea Islander (previously the Costa Atlantica), though we’ve yet to find out when it will enter service.
