Cruises to Cuba on the rise
Published on April 6, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version


HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- New arrivals of US cruise companies Pearl Seas, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruises took place during the first quarter of 2017 to Havana, which is in line with the projections of the development of such activity in Cuba.

Norwegian Cruise Lines has announced it will add 33 round trip sailings to Cuba from Miami in 2018.

The newly announced cruises begin on March 26, 2018, and are in addition to the 30 cruises that Norwegian is running to Cuba in 2017.

The inclusion of Havana in the Caribbean itineraries is a result of the agreements to reestablish relations between the United States and Cuba, agreed by both governments in December 2014.

However, US travelers must comply with any of the 12 categories allowed by Washington, as its economic blockade of the Caribbean island prevents its citizens from traveling as tourists to Cuba.

According to the ministry of tourism, this year is expected to receive 4.2 million visitors from all markets, 164,423 more than in 2016.
