On March 9, 2009, Celebration Cruise Line officially took over Imperial Majesty Cruise Line's operations. Celebration Cruise Holdings, the parent company of Imperial Majesty Cruise Line, had purchased the MS Prinsesse Ragnhild from the Color Line. It was originally believed that the former cruise-ferry was to be a replacement ship for Imperial Majesty's Regal Empress, but Celebration Cruise Holdings launched a new cruise line called Celebration Cruise Line, instead. Most of the staff, crew and remaining supplies were transferred from the Regal Empress to the new ship named Bahamas Celebration. Celebration Cruise Line currently started operating 2 and 3 day cruises out of Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale), Florida to Nassau, Bahamas. The company moved the ship's operations from Port Everglades to the Port of Palm Beach in March 2010.

On 31 October 2014, the Bahamas Celebration struck an unknown object while departing from Freeport, creating a small hole in the ship's hull and resulting in the vessel listing 10 percent. All passengers and crew were unharmed. Celebration Cruise Line ceased operations following the grounding incident. Former Celebration Cruise Line executives formed Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and purchased the Grand Celebration to take over the route formerly operated by the Bahamas Celebration.

Bahamas Celebration: Bahamas registered; built 1981; 35,483 gross tons; 892 passengers; 396 crew members.
Itineraries: On October 31, 2014, Bahamas Celebration struck an unknown object while departing from Freeport, opening up a small hole in the port side. The ship was able to return to the port and all passengers and crew were able to disembark and no injuries were reported. In December 2014 it was announced that the ship could not be repaired and would be replaced by the MS Grand Celebration, which would be operated by the newly formed Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line.
