Following strong response to its first-ever cruises to Cuba announced earlier this year, Carnival Cruise Line has added five more voyages featuring extended calls in Havana in 2018.
The new voyages include three five-day cruises to Havana and Cozumel or Key West departing Feb. 17, July 2 and Sept. 5; a six-day sailing featuring Havana and Grand Cayman departing Aug. 26; and an eight-day voyage with stops at Havana, Grand Cayman and Cozumel departing Aug. 18.
All of the voyages include a day-long call and overnight in Havana with the eight-day cruise of Aug. 18 offering two full days at the historic Cuban capital.
“Our cruises to Cuba have been very well received and we’re delighted to provide our guests with additional opportunities to experience and explore this fascinating and sought-after destination,” said Carnival president Christine Duffy.
Earlier this year, Carnival announced a series of four- and five-day voyages to Havana that kicked off in late June. Upcoming voyages in the initial program include four-day cruises departing Aug. 24, Sept. 7 and 21, and Oct. 5 and 19, 2017 as well as May 3, 2018 and five-day voyages departing Aug. 28, Sept. 25 and Oct. 9, 2017.
Carnival Paradise guests can select from nearly 20 different shore excursion experiences that showcase Cuba’s vibrant culture, majestic beauty and centuries-old architectural landmarks.
