In an email, received from Bliss Cruise:

Bliss Mgt, LLC (Bliss Cruise) announced a change in itinerary to its’ Nov. 25 – Dec. 2, 2017 charter sailing aboard the Celebrity Equinox.

The itinerary change is due to widespread devastation caused by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria to Eastern Caribbean ports-of-call.

According to Brian, President of Bliss Cruise, Bliss Partners wanted to allow its Caribbean neighbors to continue with more important matters, such as rebuilding local communities, repairs to its infrastructure, housing for its residents, and restoration of other vital services.

“We are extremely committed to the people of the Eastern Caribbean and extend our warmest well wishes during this process,” said Brian. “However, it is unlikely our original ports-of-call will be ready to meet the service standards Bliss Cruise is known for. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we’re shifting ports.”

Instead, Bliss Cruise will sail to Aruba in the Southern Caribbean, and Cocoa Cay in the Bahamas.

“Bliss Cruise has a 2019 sailing that will return to ports-of-call in the Eastern Caribbean,” continued Brian. “We’ll be back.”

According to Wayne, V.P. of Cruise Logistics and Operations for Bliss Cruise, arranging the new ports-of-call is a major boost for Bliss Cruise passengers.

“Many cruises are shifting to the Western Caribbean and the results are overcrowded ports, stressed excursions, and limited fun,” said Wayne. “By selecting Aruba, we get extended hours in this amazing port. In Cocoa Cay, the port will be clothing-optional. This is a win-win for adult lifestyle cruising.”

Bliss Cruise will arrive in Aruba on Nov. 28 from 9 am to 10 pm. The ship will arrive in Cocoa Cay on Dec. 1 from 9 am to 5 pm.

Wayne said new exciting excursions in Aruba will be available shortly and all passengers who booked shore excursions on the original itinerary will be refunded by Celebrity.

Bliss Cruise is Americas largest adult-only, full-ship clothing-optional charter entertainment company with itineraries sailing from Florida to the Eastern, Western, and now Southern Caribbean. The voyages attract many open-minded groups such as lifestyle couples, nudists, voyeurs and exhibitionists as well as curious individuals looking to experience something different from the conventional cruise vacation.
