Furloughed government employees in South Florida have been invited to lunch.

Through Jan. 31, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line is opening its ship doors to federal employees for a daily free buffet lunch on one of its two vessels. Employees are encouraged to bring their families for a hot meal at noon, then stay aboard for some free fun until 3pm.

The Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line operates two ships that sail two-night cruises between Palm Beach and Grand Bahama Island year-round. Federal workers will be hosted on the 1,486-passenger Grand Celebration and 1,680-passenger Grand Classica on a rotating basis, as the ships take turns docking at the Port of Palm Beach in between voyages.

In order to take advantage of the invitation, interested government workers should call the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line customer service number at 800-374-4363 to make a reservation, and show a federal ID at the port upon check-in to verify eligibility. The lunch offer is not available on Jan. 25 or 26, and will terminate when the shutdown ends.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either.
