Seabourn to begin Cuba sailings from November next year

Seabourn has received approval to begin sailing to Cuba from Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico, with cruise bookings now open.

The world’s ultra-luxury cruise line will start with a 12-day cruise aboard Seabourn Sojourn departing Miami on November 4th next year.

The addition of Seabourn’s sailings will help meet the growing demand for luxury travel experiences to Cuba.

Seabourn has become Carnival Corporation’s third cruise brand currently approved to sail to Cuba.

Guests can choose from four separate itineraries with five different departure dates. During the 11-, 12-, and 14-day sailings, Seabourn Sojourn will visit five ports in Cuba, all of which will call at three or four on each itinerary enabling guest’s opportunity to discover the different regions on this stunning island.

All five voyages will feature overnight stops in the historic capital city Havana, allowing guests time to explore the designated UNESCO World Heritage Site during its 500th anniversary year and immerse themselves in a wide array of historical and cultural experiences.

“The Quest for new experiences and destinations is high on the travel agenda. Added to that Cuba is one of the most sought-after emerging destinations for many of our guests,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn.

“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 we are excited to finally be able to include Cuba in our itineraries.

“These Cuba itineraries aim to satisfy the curiosity of anyone who has considered visiting.”

While onshore, guests have the option to join UNESCO Partner Tours exploring Cuba’s World Heritage cities including Santa Clara and Trinidad, the Biosphere Reserve at Las Terrazas, plus participatory excursions both by day and by night, tracing Cuban culinary, musical and artistic heritage.
