The Bahamas Paradise Cruise line wasted no time getting back on the water after an appeals court reversed the CDC restrictions on cruising Friday.

The CDC wanted to impose a phased approach to sailing from Florida ports, including a list of COVID-19 prevention techniques, but Gov. Ron DeSantis took the agency to court to reverse the decision.

The Bahamas Paradise cruise line resumed trips Saturday for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. The cruise ship returned Monday morning and will turn around and leave once again from the Port of Palm Beach for its second voyage Monday night.

Passengers are expected to adhere to social distancing and mask guidance inside the ship, and must show a negative COVID test or proof of vaccination before setting sail.

Naysimone just came back and this is what she suggests.

  1. Even if you take your PCR test 72 hrs before your trip, be prepared to take a antigen test before you board. (EVEN IF YOU ARE VACCINATED)

  2. Make sure you bring a multi plug outlet with you. The rooms only has 1 outlet.

  3. The pools, jacuzzi, hot tub are not available

  4. Mask on at all times

  5. The food is not great, make sure you bring food back to the ship once you get off in the Bahamas

  6. Freeport is still struggling since hurricane Matthews, Dorian and now Covid-19. Many things are not open.

  7. Few excursions available, not much to do.
