Margaritaville at Sea Delays Start-Up to May 14, Citing Supply Chain Issues

Margaritaville at Sea has delayed its first official passenger sailing from the Port of Palm Beach, FL, to Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas, to May 14. Cruises were originally scheduled to begin on April 30. The new line cited challenges with the global supply chain. 

“Due to global shipping delays and in an effort to ensure the very best onboard experience, we have made the decision to postpone our first passenger sailing until May 14," said Oneil Khosa, CEO of Margaritaville at Sea, in a statement to Travel Agent.

"We apologize for the inconvenience this causes our guests, [whom] we know are anxiously anticipating the opportunity to set sail with us to the Bahamas," he noted. "With the launch of Margaritaville at Sea, we are bringing an entirely new dimension and global brand to cruising. We appreciate the patience of our guests and partners as we embark upon this exciting endeavor.”

Assistance for Booked Guests

Margaritaville at Sea is offering guests the opportunity to rebook on any future sailing and receive a complimentary cabin. In addition, the money held on the original booking for the stateroom charge will be provided back as an onboard credit. Any pre-purchased supplements will be honored on new cruise dates, as well. If guests choose to cancel their cruise and not rebook, they will receive a 100 percent refund.

Margaritaville at Sea is a tropical getaway experience that offers a two-night, round-trip voyage from the Port of Palm Beach, FL, to Grand Bahama Island. In addition, travelers can extend their trip with a resort stay for up to four nights at participating beachfront properties on Grand Bahama Island.
