The Grand Celebration cruise ship will resume year-round operations out of the Port of Palm Beach on December 23 with three new enhancements.

The ship suspended normal service when it was chartered for emergency operations by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide housing to first responders and National Guard members who were rebuilding the U.S. Virgin Islands following damage caused by Hurricane Irma and Maria.

Oneil Khosa, Chief Executive Officer of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, said in a statement, "We are pleased to have been able to assist those in need in the Caribbean.  Now we are ready to return to offering memorable cruises to our guests."

Three New Grand Celebration Enhancements
1. Expanded and Enhanced Casino - The casino has doubled in size adding more slot games, video poker, and table games.

2. New Adult-Only Area - The forward sun deck will be for adults who want to unwind and relax.  It features a large hot tub, sun loungers, daybeds, and a bar.

3. Specialty Coffee Bar and Juice Bar - Offering gelato, pastries, hot or iced coffee, teas, smoothies, and more.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line plans to sail a second ship, the Grand Classica, beginning in April.
