Seabourn will become the third Carnival Corporation brand to sail to Cuba.
Bookings open today for Seabourn’s cruises to Cuba from Miami and San Juan. The first cruise departs Miami on November 4, 2019, aboard Seabourn Sojourn.
The line is offering four different Cuba itineraries and five departure dates. All five include overnight stops in Havana. The UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrates its 500th anniversary in 2019.
“For many luxury travelers, they aim to find new places to explore and discover meaningful new cultural opportunities, and Cuba is one of the most sought-after emerging destinations for many of our guests,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “We are excited to finally be able to include Cuba in our itineraries, and our guests and travel partners have been anxiously awaiting an ultra-luxury travel experience with a wider selection of destinations in this relatively undiscovered Caribbean treasure. These Cuba itineraries are fresh and sure to satisfy the curiosity of anyone who has considered visiting.”
In addition to Havana, Seabourn Sojourn will call at several other UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Cuba. Highlights include Antilla (Nipe Bay); Cienfuegos, founded by the French in 1819; Punta Francés, Isla de Juventud, off the coast of Cuba and Santiago de Cuba, founded in 1515.
Shore excursions include UNESCO Partner Tours to Santa Clara and Trinidad, the Biosphere Reserve at Las Terrazas and numerous culinary, musical and artistic experiences.
