This week saw the addition of more Cuba sailings from major cruise lines.

Carnival Cruise Line announced that it will add five more Cuba cruises on Carnival Paradise out of Tampa in 2018.

Three new five-day cruises will call at Havana and Cozumel or Key West, departing February 17, July 2 and September 5, 2018. A six-day itinerary calling at Havana and Grand Cayman will depart August 26, 2018, and an eight-day itinerary with calls at Havana, Grand Cayman and Cozumel will depart August 18, 2018. All of the new sailings will include a day-long call and overnight in Havana, and the August 18 departure will spend two full days in the destination.

Azamara Club Cruises has announced a range of Cuba itineraries for 2018 and 2019, ranging from four to 14 nights.

Calls include Cienfuegos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as longer port stays, new onboard cultural programming and two overnights in Havana. Select sailings will also include an AzAmazing Evenings bespoke private onshore event.

The moves follow last weeks announcement that Pearl Seas Cruises will offer four cruises to Cuba at the end of 2017.

The 11-night itinerary departs Fort Lauderdale on November 10, 20, 30, and December 12, 2017 with calls at Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, El Cobre and Santiago de Cuba. Guests can also take advantage of a complimentary pre-cruise package and transportation to the ship.
