Norwegian Cruise Line is ramping up its Cuba sailings for 2018, offering 33 new roundtrip voyages from Miami.
Sailings will take place on the Norwegian Sky, which will begin its 2018 Cuba cruise season in March with four-day roundtrip cruises to the destination, 32 of which will include an overnight stay in Havana.
The new cruises will begin on March 26, 2018, and are in addition to the previously announced 30 Cuba calls that the cruise line will offer through this December. Those cruises start in June 2017 and also include overnight Havana stays, as well as a call on Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island in the Bahamas.
On 2017 and 2018 itineraries Norwegian guests in Havana can enjoy visits to historical sites like Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; explorations of the city’s art and music scene; and visits with locals through people-to-people exchanges.
Norwegian said it will offer 15 half- and full-day OFAC-compliant shore excursions, offering guests the opportunity to have a farm to table dining experience, explore the flora and fauna of Soroa, see Havana in an American classic car and more.
2018 itineraries will also call at Great Stirrup Cay.
Guests onboard the Norwegian Sky can enjoy included dining, entertainment and unlimited beer, wine and premium spirits through an updated policy Norwegian rolled out in 2015. Guests three to 20 years of age can enjoy unlimited sodas and juice. All-inclusive prices onboard Norwegian Sky do not include taxes, gratuities or specialty restaurant charges.
Norwegian Cruise Line was approved for travel to Cuba late last year along with the two other brands, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, under the umbrella of its parent company, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. Cuba cruises are also available on Oceania Marina, as well as Seven Seas Mariner.
Bookings for Norwegian Sky’s four-day cruises to Cuba for 2018 open April 20.
