Silversea is heading to Cuba with 5 new itineraries for 2019

MIAMI — Silversea has launched a new collection of voyages to Cuba, with itineraries in 2019 now available to book.

While Canadians have long made Cuba one of their top sun spots, the destination is still largely inaccessible to American travellers – unless they’re on a cruise with Cuban ports of call.

Departing for Cuba from the U.S. for the first time in the cruise line’s history, the 17 Silversea voyages will showcase the best of the country through immersive land excursions in various destinations, says the cruise line.

Available to book now, five voyages will immerse Silversea’s passengers in Cuba’s charms in 2019:

  • Silver Wind will inaugurate the collection of voyages to Cuba when it sets sail on Feb. 14, 2019, on a seven-night voyage from San Juan to Fort Lauderdale. The itinerary will include visits to the Cuban cities of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, and the Bahamian island of Bimini.
  • Silversea’s recently lengthened Silver Spirit will depart San Juan on a 10-night voyage on Feb. 22, 2019. An overnight in Santiago de Cuba will be complemented by calls in Cienfuegos and Havana, as well as stops in George Town, Key West and Bimini, before finishing in Fort Lauderdale.
  • Departing San Juan on March 31, 2019, Silver Wind will head to Santiago de Cuba and Havana on overnight calls, as well as Cienfuegos, on a 10-night voyage. The itinerary will also incorporate George Town in the Cayman Islands and Bimini.
  • Also aboard Silver Wind, a nine-night roundtrip voyage from Fort Lauderdale – departing April 10 – will call in Santiago de Cuba overnight and Havana, in addition to Bimini, Nassau and Port Canaveral.
  • Concluding the selection for 2019, a 14-night sailing aboard Silver Whisper will depart Fort Lauderdale on Nov. 22. The roundtrip voyage will feature a visit to Cienfuegos, plus overnight stays in Santiago de Cuba and Havana. The itinerary also includes calls in Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Belize City and Key West.

Another 12 voyages with Cuban ports are scheduled for 2020.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Cuba to our 2019 and 2020 voyage collections,” says Mark Conroy, Silversea’s Managing Director for the Americas. “Cuba is arguably the fastest growing destination in the Caribbean, and one that many luxury travellers are eager to explore, knowing that they can be uniquely enriched by a fresh perspective on the people, traditions and natural wonders of this island nation.”
