Discovery Cruise Line wins award

For the fourth consecutive year Discovery Cruise Line, the largest tour operator to Grand Bahama Island from Fort Lauderdale, has received Porthole Cruise Magazine’s 2005 Readers’ Choice Award as the “Best One-Day Cruise.”

“Year after year, the readers of Porthole Cruise Magazine recognize the fun they have aboard Discovery Cruise Line,” said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Fort Lauderdale-based magazine.

“This year is no exception, as Discovery was once again voted the Best One-Day Cruise in our 7th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards.”

According to Hanns J. Hahn, General Manager of Discovery, “Discovery recently launched its Bahamas Party Cruises. All passengers receive party beads and blowers, match play at Isle of Capri Casino, a Bahama Mama cocktail on island, and an opportunity to win prizes on board, all of which are free. All this is included in the roundtrip same-day cruise price of $99.99 per person. It’s new and exciting and lots of fun.”

Discovery sails daily from Fort Lauderdale to Grand Bahama Island, departing at 7:45 am and arriving back at the pier at 10 pm. Each year Discovery carries over 200,000 passengers between the two destinations.


The cruise features all the amenities of a longer cruise in one fun-filled day, including three lavish buffet meals on board, a kid’s club, exciting casino action, live entertainment, outdoor games and activities, contests, spacious sun decks, a swimming pool, duty-free shopping, and more. Gourmet dining is also available at Grand Bahama Grill for an additional charge.
