Regent Seven Seas Cruises reports it is adding more calls in Cuba on two itineraries in 2019 and 2020. Seven Seas Mariner will call at Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba on its October 15, 2019, sailing, while Seven Seas Navigator will call at Havana on its April 25, 2020, sailing.
On the Cuba cruises guests will be able to select from unlimited free shore excursions, all of which are in compliance with the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s (OFAC) people-to-people regulations. In Havana, guests will be able to tour places associated with Ernest Hemingway and learn about the city’s Baroque, neoclassical and Renaissance architecture. From Cienfuegos, guests can visit UNESCO World Heritage sites Valle de los Ingenios (Valley of the Sugar Mills) and Trinidad, and learn about traditional pottery methods at a family-owned workshop along the way. Santiago de Cuba will offer context to events that changed the course of Cuban history, where guests can visit San Juan Hill and learn about the 18th century battle which led to the end of Spanish rule.
Seven Seas Mariner made Regent’s maiden call on Havana in April 2017. Travelers can choose among eight future itineraries that offer guests an opportunity to visit Cuba. Seven Seas Mariner’s October 10, 2018, voyage, will call again on Havana on its trans-Panama Canal voyage to the South Pacific, while the ship’s new October 15, 2019, voyage will offer three Cuban ports. Caribbean itineraries that also visit Havana are Seven Seas Navigator’s November 11, 2018 and April 25, 2020 voyages; and Seven Seas Voyager’s December 6 and 16, 2018, February 6, and March 5, 2019 voyages.
