You’ve heard of season or annual passes that offer you unlimited admission to places like theme parks and museums, but in an industry first, Margaritaville at Sea is launching their own season pass. The Ultimate Paradise Pass allows a passholder and their guest to enjoy an unlimited number of non-consecutive two-night sailings to The Bahamas, with limited restrictions.
Starting at $899, the Ultimate Paradise Pass invites travelers to experience Margaritaville at Sea as many times as they want through the end of 2023. Passes can be purchased online at pass.margaritavilleatsea.com. The passes do not include taxes, fees or port expenses, which must be paid for each guest at time of booking. There are also some blackout dates.
The Ultimate Paradise Pass benefits also include welcome amenities, exclusive sneak peeks of new onboard activities, and behind-the-scenes access on certain sailings. Passholders also have the option to add upgrades, packages, and onshore excursions at the time of booking at a 10% discount.
“This is completely new to the cruise industry. Now, passengers can buy a season pass to paradise and enjoy long walks on the beach throughout the year,” said Kevin Sheehan, Jr. president and CEO of Margaritaville at Sea. “Thanks to our unique two-night itinerary, the groundbreaking Ultimate Paradise Pass will give avid cruisers a new way to experience unlimited getaways to The Bahamas. It’s perfect for a quick escape after a stressful work week or for a whole new adventure at sea.”
Voyages booked with the Ultimate Paradise Pass can only be booked 24-72 hours in advance, making the pass ideal for those with flexible schedules. It is also recommended Ultimate Paradise Pass passholders travel with one other guest (guest fare included with Ultimate Paradise Pass) in a double-occupancy ocean view or inside stateroom. “As far as restrictions go, being forced to bring along a friend for free is not bad,” joked Sheehan. “And you can bring along someone different every time you cruise!”
Margaritaville at Sea’s flagship vessel, Margaritaville at Sea Paradise, offers three-day/two-night microvacations from Palm Beach, Florida to Grand Bahama Island.
