Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line Goes Green and is First to Receive Approval from CDC

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – June 17, 2020 Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line today became the first cruise line to receive a “green” approval from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) on its No Sail Response plan. This approval means the cruise line has complied with the CDC’s requirements under its No Sail Order and is providing a safe environment for crew members to work and disembark via non-commercial travel – allowing crew to now disembark via commercial travel.

To receive this approval, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line met, and will meet moving forward, the following criteria:

  • No confirmed cases of COVID-19 for 28 days
  • Crew members must come from a ship that had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 for 28 days
  • Land-based crew who embarked must have been immediately quarantined for 14 days
  • Cruise lines must submit signed attestation of commercial travel

“Navigating the difficult waters of COVID-19 has been a challenge that our industry has faced with grace, and we’re excited to be the first to receive the CDC’s approval on our No Sail Response plan,” said Lisa Schillig, director of port and terminal operations at Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line. “We’ve already implemented all of our new and improved health and safety guidelines onboard, and we know that while cruising will look a bit different when we return, we are doing everything possible to ensure a safe, healthy, and memorable vacation experience. We look forward to providing our guests with the same quality service and experiences that we’re known for as we move into the ‘new normal’ that lies ahead.”

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s extensive list of health and safety measures are being implemented from embarkation to disembarkation, keeping guests and crew members safe and healthy. New protocols include closing two-passenger stateroom decks to reduce crowds onboard, requiring all terminal staff to wear masks and remain behind safety plexiglass to minimize contact with guests, suspension of self-service buffet stations, keeping tables and seating areas six feet apart, reducing tour buses for excursions to 50 percent capacity, mandatory temperature screenings for all guests, and more.
