About Celebration Cruise Line
Celebration Cruise Line is a one-ship cruise line that sails two-night voyages from the Port of Palm Beach to Grand Bahama Island. The cruises may be combined with a Bahamas beach resort stay. The short duration (and affordability) of the cruises make them popular with first-time cruisers and those who are able to drive to the port.

Very casual, few frills and tailored toward a younger crowd. As the ship is a converted Baltic ferry, this is a mass-market product and the level of satisfaction depends on the expectations. Cabins are small and some inside cabins are furnished with bunk beds; outside cabins are generally sold as upgrades, at higher prices.
The cruises are marketed by a company known as Caribbean Cruise Line and often presented as "free" cruises through various promotions, though there are charges of several hundred dollars, as well as an obligation to attend sales presentations for timeshares.
