Norwegian Cruise Line’s new itineraries to Cuba and the Caribbean aboard Norwegian Sun are now on sale. For a limited season this fall, sailing roundtrip from Miami, Norwegian Sun will offer guests a chance to discover Cuba and explore some of the brand’s most popular Caribbean destinations in just one journey on seven, nine and 13-day cruises.
“We are thrilled to reveal Norwegian Sun’s new fall 2018 itineraries, which will be the first time our brand has featured a call to Havana, Cuba on seven-day and longer cruises,” said president and CEO Andy Stuart. “These new itineraries offer a remarkable breadth of experiences for guests with a culturally immersive full day and evening in Havana, complemented by several visits to world-class destinations across the Caribbean and beyond.”
Norwegian Sun will sail six seven-day cruises from Miami departing on Sundays from 09SEP through 14OCT. Ports include Havana, Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s private island in the Bahamas), Costa Maya (Mexico) and Harvest Caye (Belize). The ship’s nine-day Cuba and the Caribbean cruises will expand upon the seven-day sailings and also include additional visits to Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras and Cozumel.
The new 13-day Cuba, Caribbean and the Panama Canal cruise departs from Miami on 30OCT. On this cruise, the ship will sail from the Caribbean to Central and South America and back again visiting eight destinations, including Puerto Limon, Costa Rica; Cartagena and Santa Marta, Colombia and Oranjestad, Aruba, among others.
Norwegian Cruise Line has also added a new five-day cruise to Cuba and the Bahamas from Port Canaveral on 03SEP. The new cruise will round out the ship’s season sailing from the Space Coast with an afternoon visit to the southernmost city of Key West then head to Havana for an overnight stay, followed by a beach day at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.
