Margaritaville at Sea Offers Free Cruises for Military, First Responders and Educators

Margaritaville at Sea, a floating island vacation, has announced its new “Heroes Sail Free” cruise program, inviting U.S. military service members (active duty and veterans), police, fire, EMS personnel, and educators to enjoy one free cruise fare to the Bahamas. A first for the cruise industry, this offer invites these frontline heroes to enjoy a microvacation to the islands. The program is coordinated through a partnership with, the largest military and government e-commerce site exclusively for military and first responders.

Margaritaville at Sea is the only cruise line operating 3-day, 2-night cruises sailing from the Port of Palm Beach in Florida to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.

The cruise line’s flagship vessel, Margaritaville at Sea Paradise, features gourmet food and beverage options, including JWB Prime Steakhouse and the 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill, along with pools, retail stores, a St. Somewhere Spa, Fins Up! Fitness Center, among other services and amenities. The ship also offers onboard leisure activities and entertainment, including the Casino Margaritaville and Stars on the Water Theater, home to the “Tales from Margaritaville: Jimmy’s Ship Show,” written and produced by Jimmy Buffett and acclaimed producer Frank Marshall.


For your dedication to serving our communities at home and abroad, Margaritaville at Sea invites all active and veteran military, first responders, law enforcement officers and educators to sail free on a much-deserved 3-day, 2-night cruise to Grand Bahama Island.
