Margaritaville at Sea Paradise Inaugural Event – Cruise Maven

The Margaritaville at Sea Paradise inaugural event, the 1st cruise ship branded by Jimmy Buffet’s iconic label, took spot on May possibly 12, 2022 at the Port of Palm Beach front.  Some of you may possibly don’t forget this ship as the former Grand Paradise, the a single remaining ship in the former Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line fleet.

Designed in 1991, Paradise was the moment Grand Classica, from Costa Cruise Line.  Although there are not any regular balcony staterooms, just a handful of suites with terraces, the ship has been almost-absolutely “Margaritaville-ized”  Nearly each inch of the ship has been refurbished and reverberates a tropical and entertaining encounter.
