West Palm Beach To Freeport Daily – P&O: UK’s Largest Ship – Uniworld’s Fifth S.S. Super Ship

The Cruise Examiner for 28th August 2017

Costa Classica

The addition of the Costa neoClassica will bring the West Palm Beach-Freeport, Bahamas, cruise service up to daily next spring

An announcement has now been made that a second ship will be added to Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s West Palm Beach to Freeport, Bahamas, service. This will increase the frequency of getaway 2-night cruise departures to daily, with as many days stopover in the Bahamas as one wants. If all goes to plan, the existing Grand Celebration will be joined by a renamed Costa neoClassica (above) next spring. We take the opportunity to look back at some of earlier cruise services that have operated from Palm Beach. Meanwhile, P&O Cruises’ naming contest for its new 5,200-berth megaship, to enter service in 2020, has closed. And Uniworld have announced that it will convert an existing vessel into its latest S.S. Super Ship.
