Several cruise lines have now new itineraries touching on Cuba

Posted: 14-May-18 09:35

Cuba continues to be a popular tourist destination, in spite of stricter guidelines for travel between the US and Cuba. Several cruise lines are offering new cruises to the island, and the cruises comply with US guidelines for travel to Cuba. Additionally, there will also be new flights from Houston to Havana through United Airlines and Mesa Airlines.

Several cruise lines have now new itineraries touching on Cuba

Cuba remains a popular choice as a cruise destination, and Travel Agent recently discussed some of the newest cruise offerings to the island, as well as new flight services to Havana from United Airlines.

Victory Cruise Lines is now offering new 13- or 14-night Cuba circumnavigation cruises on Victory I between January and April 2019, with a special spring weekend three-day cruise to close the winter season.

Victory Cruise Lines offers special winter reduced pricing and early booking discounts on the Miami-Cuba sailings. For instance, all-inclusive fares for 13-night voyages start at $5,995 per person, double occupancy, including the early-booking discount. In addition, select value-season departures qualify for an overnight hotel or air credit of $500 per person.

All Cuba circumnavigation sailings are roundtrip from PortMiami, including five 13- or 14-night cruises departing January 29, 2019; February 15; and March 1, 15, and 29.

Every sailing includes a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities, including interactions with Cuban musicians, artists, naturalists, and its new generation of entrepreneurs. The cruises offered by Victory meet the guidelines required by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury Department for Americans visiting Cuba.

Pearl Seas Cruises is also offering cruises from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, some with special incentives. The cruise line is offering complimentary pre-cruise packages for new bookings on 2018 sailings to Cuba, which includes a one-night premium hotel stay in Fort Lauderdale and transportation to the ship. Currently, the cruise line also has a savings of up to $3,000 off per stateroom on select 2018 sailings and is waiving port charges and fees. Pearl Seas Cruises offers 11-night voyages to Cuba from November through December with additional cruises in 2019.

Pearl Seas Cruises is one of the only cruise lines that offer passengers two days in Havana as it circumnavigates the island. The 11-day itinerary includes Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Casilda, El Cobre, and Santiago de Cuba. The cruises follow the people-to-people guidelines established by the US government.

MSC Cruises is adding its first US homeport for Cuba cruises. Starting December 10, the MSC Armonia will sail from Miami on a seven-night Caribbean itinerary that includes two days in Havana. The MSC Armonia was the first ship in MSC Cruises’ $250 million Renaissance Program, undergoing an extensive overhaul in late 2014.

Carnival Cruise Lines will offer 17 new sailings to Cuba beginning in 2019. The sailings will be five days and will be the line’s first to operate roundtrip from Miami.

In addition to a number of new cruises to Cuba, some airlines will offer new flights to the island. United Airlines and Mesa Airlines have been approved to offer daily nonstop service from Houston to Havana.
