After being granted approval to sail to the island for the first time, Regent Seven Seas Cruises becomes the first luxury cruiser to offer voyages to Cuba. The cruise line has now added Havana to two of their Caribbean cruises onboard the Seven Seas Mariner, with the new sailing journeys launching in April 2017.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises adds Havana to their April 2017 itinerary

Having added Havana to their spring 2017 Caribbean itineraries, North American cruise line, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, becomes the first luxury cruise liner to provide sailing voyages to the island.

After being granted a license by the U.S. government to operate sailing journeys between the two countries, Regent Seven Seas Cruises has wasted no time in including Havana on their spring Caribbean itineraries, with both of their Caribbean cruises calling at Havana and including overnight stays in Cuba’s capital, giving passengers plenty of time to explore the city and experience its rich culture and history.

Announcing the launch of the new cruises, Regent Seven Seas Cruise’s president and chief executive officer, Jason Montague said:

“We’re excited to be the first luxury cruise line to offer voyages to Cuba, a destination our guests have dreamt of visiting. With our industry-leading all-inclusive luxury experience, guests will be able to enjoy the wonders of Havana with a robust selection of free, unlimited shore excursions, all of which meet the people-to-people guidelines established by OFAC.”

Departing on 11th and 18th April respectively, the two seven-day cruises will stop at Havana for two days, the first and longest stop in the journey, followed by a day at sea, a one-day stopover in Belize’s Harvest Caye, another one-day stopover in Mexico’s Costa Maya and a final day at sea before docking in Miami the next day, where the journey begins and ends.

As part of Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ deluxe all-inclusive programme, during their stop in Havana, passengers will be able to select from an array of expertly crafted shore excursions to get to know Cuba’s most famous city.

These excursions are all come fully included as part of Seven Seas’ unlimited shore excursion programme and all tours will provide passengers authentic Cuban experiences through meetings with locals and organised activities to experience Cuban music, art, history and culture, thus complying with OFAC’s regulations for educational travel and meaningful cultural exchanges between U.S. visitors and locals.

Giving passengers a greater Cuban background with more in-depth insight into the island’s past and present, guest scholars will give expert presentations on Cuba’s history, present-day challenges and future possibilities.
