December 8. Margaritaville Hotels & Resorts is becoming the latest travel and leisure brand to expand its operations to cruise ships. The company inspired by famed singer Jimmy Buffett has formed a new partnership with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line to rebrand the operation and cruise ship with the distinctive Margaritaville brand.
Departing on her first passenger sailing on April 30, 2022, from the Port of Palm Beach Florida to Grand Bahama Island, the cruise ship currently sailing as the Grand Classica will be renamed the Margaritaville Paradise, continuing to offer 2-night/3-day cruises to the Bahamas. The 52,900 gross ton cruise ship will be the first in the new Margaritaville at Sea brand.
“To me, the only thing better than being on a beach by the ocean, is to be on the ocean. Now you can follow in our wake,” said singer, songwriter and best-selling author Jimmy Buffett in announcing the new operation.
