Unlimited cruises: Margaritaville at Sea launches Ultimate Paradise Pass
If your 2023 travel goals include cruises, a new offer from Margaritaville at Sea will help you meet those in a big way.
The line launched a new Ultimate Paradise Pass on Thursday, allowing guests to take as many non-consecutive two-night cruises to the Bahamas as they want through the end of the year.
The pass also includes early looks at new activities on board, welcome amenities for passengers and "behind-the-scenes access" on some cruises, according to a news release.
"Thanks to our unique two-night itinerary, the groundbreaking Ultimate Paradise Pass will give avid cruisers a new way to experience unlimited getaways to The Bahamas," Kevin Sheehan, Jr., the line's president and CEO, said in the release. "It’s perfect for a quick escape after a stressful work week or for a whole new adventure at sea."

How much does the Ultimate Paradise Pass cost?
The passes currently cost $899, including the fare for a guest. The price does not include taxes, fees and port expenses, which cost $94.40 per person, the line said on its website. There is also a $19.99 booking fee per cabin, and the pass price excludes gratuities, onboard costs and fuel surcharges.
Those who purchase the pass can get a 10% discount on packages, excursions and more.
What are the terms of the Ultimate Paradise Pass?
U.S. residents 18 years and up can purchase the Ultimate Paradise Pass while supplies last.
Those who book using the pass can only do so 24 to 72 hours before a sailing and "Receive our best available cabin, excluding suites, and subject to availability, at (the) time of check-in," the line said on its website.
Passholders can sail solo but must pay a $159 single supplement charge.
Those booking with the pass can add third and fourth guests to a reservation, but those passengers have to pay "applicable rates available at the time of booking for the selected sailing" along with relevant fees and expenses, the line said.
