The new travel brand Margaritaville at Sea (Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line) was supposed to start 3-day/2-night voyages to Freeport (Bahamas) from homeport West Palm Beach (Florida USA) on April 30, 2022. However, the company canceled its first 7 cruises on Margaritaville Paradise (fka Grand Classica), so the brand's inauguration was postponed to mid-May.

The company emailed its booked customers affected by the cancellations, stating that there were currently many challenges in the global supply chain, which had impacted the upcoming launch of Margaritaville at Sea.

“To ensure the best possible experience for you and all of our guests, we are moving our first official passenger sailing to May 14th.”

According to Margaritaville's spokesperson Tamara Baldanza-Dekker, affected passengers would get a refund in case they choose not to rebook. Those who rebook get a complimentary stateroom, aside from taxes and fees, and get any money they had already paid for the voyage as an onboard credit.

The 31-year-old ship Grand Classica currently receives a multi-million dollar wetdock refit and refurbishment to be worthy of her new name Margaritaville Paradise. The experience onboard features themed restaurants like Port of Indecision Buffett, Frank and Lola’s Pizzeria, JWB Prime Steak & Seafood, 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar, and LandShark Sports Bar.
