Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean Cruises both announced this week that they have received approval from the Cuban government to operate cruises with stops in Cuba.
Norwegian will begin offering cruises as early as March 2017 on its Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. "We are tremendously excited to have all three of our award-winning bands receive approval from the Cuban authorities to offer cruises to Cuba from the United States," said Norwegian President and CEO Frank Del Rio.
Norwegian's inaugural cruise to Cuba will depart Port of Miami on March 7 on it's Oceania Cruise Marina ship. Regent Seven Seas will first call in Havana in April on the Seven Seas Mariner and Norwegian Sky will over four-day voyages with overnights in Havana beginning May 2017.
Royal Caribbean will reveal its new Florida-Cuba cruises in the "near future" and plans to offer cruises on both Royal Caribbean International and Azamara Club Cruises.
We expect more details on these cruises to be announced very soon. Let Enjoy Vacationing know if we can help you with your cruise planning!
