Started with an idea to do a birthday cruise for a few Libra friends back in 2010. Since then we went from 50 guest to well over 600+ every year thanks primarily to word of mouth. Over the years Paradise Island Cruise has developed into a unique blend of everything you're looking for in a vacation. Exotic destinations, trending atmosphere, culture, excursions, cuisine, parties, networking, and still plenty of time to just relax.
With our Theme Parties, Comedy Shows, Game Nights, DJ's, Island Events and overall customer service, we create a unique experience catered to our targeted audience that you cannot get on a normal cruise sailing. We bring the life to each and every Paradise Island Cruise.
