The 658-cabin Margaritaville at Sea Paradise cruise ship will embark on its maiden voyage April 30, 2022 from the Port of Palm Beach, Florida, and will travel to Grand Bahama Island. The vessel boasts 10 passenger decks, all decked out in a “casual-luxe design” with colors and style influenced by the singer’s beloved beachy aesthetic.

Passengers aboard the Margaritaville Paradise will be treated to an array of relaxing amenities, including the Par-A-Dice Casino, a Stars on the Water Theater, St. Somewhere Spa, Fins Up! Fitness Center, multiple pools and a retail shop where they can score a souvenir.
The cruise will offer plenty of food and drink options for Parrot Heads, including JWB Prime Steak & Seafood, Frank and Lola’s Pizzeria, Port of Indecision Buffet, LandShark Sports Bar, and Margaritaville Coffee & Pastry Shop. Passengers can also kick back at the Euphoria Lounge, Sunset Bar or 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar.

We look forward to seeing guests on, and in, Paradise.”
