Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line said that federal workers who
are not getting paid because of the partial government shutdown can get a free
buffet lunch and afternoon on its ships.
The offer applies to furloughed federal employees and
families and is available noon to 3 p.m. through Jan. 31 (except Jan. 25 and
26), unless the shutdown ends before the end of January.
The lunch is available on both of the line's ships, the
Grand Celebration and the Grand Classica. Bahamas Paradise sails out of Palm Beach, Fla.
Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line requests that federal employees
call customer service at (800) 374-4363 to reserve their lunch and visit and
that they provide a federal ID at port terminal visitor check in.
