Bahamas Paradise to Require COVID-19 Vaccinations

Grand Classica

Following an order implemented by the Bahamas Customs & Excise Department, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has updated its travel policy and will require all guests 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, according to a statement.

The new rules are for the so-called the restricted period of September 3, 2021 to October 31, 2021. 

Guests will be asked to present their original CDC vaccination card upon embarkation at the Port of Palm Beach.

Guests will be considered fully vaccinated if they have received their second in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines (or their single dose of the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine), at least 14 days prior to their cruise departure date, according to a press release.

Those who are booked on a Bahamas Paradise Cruise and are not fully vaccinated or will not be vaccinated 14 days prior to their departure date, may move without penalty to a new sailing date following the October 31, 2021 expiration of the Bahamas’ order.
