Discovery Cruise Line, which offers daily ferry service with cruise line amenities between South Florida and Grand Bahama Island except Wednesdays, announced that it is lowering its fares and fuel surcharge.
Hanns J. Hahn, General Manager of Discovery, said that "Effectively immediately and at least through January 3, 2009, the fare for a same day roundtrip Fun Day Cruise has been reduced to just $39.99 per person and the price of a two day, one night Cruise N Stay Staycation has been reduced to only $89.99 per person. In effect, two are sailing for the previous price of one." Hahn said that "In addition, we have lowered the fuel surcharge by $10 to $19 per person. These changes are in recognition of lower fuel costs today and the desire of the consumer for competitive fares."
