A US Coast Guard (USCG) ’No Sail Order’ issued against the ‘Margaritaville at Sea Paradise’ has been lifted.

During the ship’s annual inspection, Port State Control Officers from USCG’s Marine Safety Detachment Lake Worth, identified conditions, which required the ship to stay in port until rectified, due to the safety of the passengers and crew, a USCG spokesperson told local newswires, adding that the ’No Sail Order’ was in place until the discrepancies were fixed.

On its Facebook page dated 15th July, ‘Margaritaville at Sea Paradise’ said that the vessel was “inspected, cleared and returns to normal service from the port of Palm Beach at 5 pm today.”

However, the detention forced the cancellation of her 13th July sailing on a two-night cruise to the Bahamas.

The company, Margaritaville at Sea, is a re-incarnation of the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, which had operated short cruises to the Bahamas from Palm Beach.

‘Margarita at Sea Paradise’ is the former ‘Grand Classica’, which previously operated for Costa.
