Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line will take to the waters in July.

Sailings plan to resume aboard Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line's Grand Celebration from West Palm Beach, Fla., to Grand Bahama Island on July 25.

Sailings on its second ship, the Grand Classica, will begin on Oct. 2 for the line's Cruise & Stay program, which lets guests extend their stay in Grand Bahama or Nassau for up to four nights at one of the company's partner resorts.

The line had initially announced that it would resume sailings in May, but it subsequently moved its initial cruises to mid-June and then to July.

New health and safety preventative measures are being rolled out in preparation of the ships' return to ensure the wellness of passengers and crew.

"When we return, our onboard experience may look a little different to our guests," said CEO Oneil Khosa. "Passengers can expect enhanced sanitation procedures from embarkation to disembarkation."

New measures include limiting in-use staterooms by 40%; disinfecting of guest luggage; temperature checks; online check-in; a two-tier sanitizing process in onboard public areas; use of hand sanitizer stations throughout the ships; no buffet stations; food and beverages served by crew members with face masks, hats and gloves; and twice-a-day cleaning of kids' club, theaters, spa and gym areas.

In addition, isolated wards in the medical center will be available for ill guests or those who are concerned that they have been exposed to Covid-19.

A new fresh-air ventilation system has been installed on each ship.
