Bahamas Paradise cleared for June 25 test cruise

Grand Classica's test cruise will carry fully vaccinated volunteers
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line received the green light from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to conduct a simulated sailing.

The two-night cruise will sail June 25 aboard Grand Classica, round-trip Palm Beach, Florida.

Fully vaccinated volunteers

Bahamas Paradise said a small group of pre-selected passengers fully vaccinated for COVID-19 will join fully vaccinated crew for the test cruise to Grand Bahama Island.

The fact the line is operating a test cruise indicates it will will not have a vaccination mandate when actual sailings start. 

Plan for July 2 resumption

The line plans to resume regular service July 2, pending approval from the CDC.
