Royal Caribbean doubles 2018 sailings to Cuba with two ships and new destinations

There are twice as many opportunities for a Cuba adventure with Royal Caribbean this summer, with two ships sailing to the island nation and two new destinations.

The added sailings, on Majesty of the Seas and Empress of the Seas, and breadth of experiences at the new ports of Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos, provide even more ways for guests to immerse themselves in the culture and history of the vibrant island.

Empress of the Seas
Empress of the Seas offers a variety of itineraries on Cuban cruises

Cuba’s historic cities of Havana, Santiago and Cienfuegos will be among the destinations on 4- to 8-night Caribbean adventures on Empress of the Seas.

Departing from Miami year-round, Empress cruise vacations include 7-night Best of Cuba itineraries to Cienfuegos, Havana and Nassau, Bahamas; 5-night sailings visiting Key West, Florida and spending the night in Havana; and an 8-night journey to Cienfuegos, Santiago de Cuba, Grand Cayman, and Labadee, Haiti.

Majesty of the Seas continues the 4- and 5-night offerings to Havana that include day and overnight stays, departing from Tampa from April to October, and Ft Lauderdale from November 2018 to March 2019.

“Cuba is such an important part of Caribbean culture, and we can’t wait to call on Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuego, showcasing even more of the country’s scenic beauty, rich history and distinctive architecture,” said Michael Bayley, President of Royal Caribbean International.

“Cruising remains the easiest way to visit Cuba, and with both Empress and Majesty sailing there in 2018 and 2019, we hope to make it that much easier for adventure seekers to experience the legendary island.”
