Cuba approves first-ever Seabourn cruises, starting late 2019

SEATTLE — Seabourn is heading to Cuba for the very first time after receiving approval to sail to the island starting in winter 2019.

The news makes Seabourn the third cruise brand under the Carnival Corporation umbrella to gain approval to sail to island.

Cruises will depart from Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico, starting with a 12-day cruise aboard Seabourn Sojourn departing Miami on Nov. 4, 2019.

Guests can choose from four separate itineraries with five different departure dates. The 11-, 12- and 14-day sailings will visit five ports in Cuba throughout the season, calling at three or four on each itinerary. The five ports include Antilla (Nipe Bay); Cienfuegos; Havana; Punta Francés, Isla de Juventud; and Santiago de Cuba.

All five voyages will include overnight stops in Havana, allowing guests to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site during its 500th anniversary year.

Bookings for Seabourn’s cruises to Cuba are currently open.

“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,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “These Cuba itineraries are fresh and sure to satisfy the curiosity of anyone who has considered visiting.”
