Carnival Cruise Line launches five new sailings to Cuba in 2018

Carnival Cruise Line has announced that it will launch a further five cruises to Cuba following the success of its Carnival Paradise cruises that were launched this summer. The cruise company revealed details of its latest sailings that will begin in 2018.

The new cruises will sail to the capital of Cuba, Havana, and will include overnight stays so guests can soak up the culture, cuisine and history. Each of the cruises will be operated by the 2,052-passenger Carnival Paradise vessel and will vary in length from five days to eight days.

Christine Duffy, the President of Carnival Cruise Line, in a press release, stated:

“Our cruises to Cuba have been very well received and we’re delighted to provide our guests with additional opportunities to experience and explore this fascinating and sought-after destination.”

The five-day cruises to Cuba will depart from Tampa in Florida in the United States, and will call at Cozumel in Mexico, Key West in Florida and will include an overnight stay in Havana. The cruises will operate on 17th February, 2018 and 5th September, 2018. The six-day sailings will also launch from Tampa on 26th August, 2018, and they will call at Havana and Grand Cayman where passengers will stay overnight. The eight-night cruises will start on 18th August, 2018 in Tampa, and guests will stay in Havana overnight and enjoy two full days in the city, and the ship will also stop at Grand Cayman and Cozumel.

The Carnival Paradise vessel was Carnival Cruise Line’s final Fantasy class cruise ship to be created. The family-friendly ship has multiple restaurants with international cuisine, swimming pools, hot tubs, a Twister Waterslide, a spa, the Serenity Adults-only Retreat, mini golf, Tower Animal Theatre, and fun entertainment including Dr Seuss at Sea, Hasbro the Game Show, and Playlist Productions.
Carnival Cruise Line is just one of many U.S-based cruise lines that operates sailings to Cuba.

More than a year ago, the former U.S President Barrack Obama relaxed rules on travel to Cuba for Americans. The U.S rules allowed cruise lines to offer "people-to-people" exchanges between Americans and Cubans.Earlier this summer, the current U.S President Donald Trump, announced changes to the Obama-era policy, stopping solo travel to Cuba for Americans, and enforcing a group travel only policy for travellers visiting the Caribbean island.
