FLORIDA, United States, Friday December 23, 2016 – Norwegian Cruise Line’s first cruises to Cuba are now open for bookings. The Miami-based line on Tuesday began taking reservations for the recently announced, four-day sailings from Miami to the island nation, which will kick off on May 1.
The trips will take place on the 2,004-passenger Norwegian Sky, which will become the biggest vessel traveling between the USA and Cuba. Five of the voyages are planned for May. They’ll include an overnight stay in Havana and a stop at Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian’s private island in the Bahamas. Norwegian is one of six lines that received approval from the Cuban government this month to begin sailing to Cuba early next year. Also receiving approval were Norwegian’s two sister lines, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, as well as Royal Caribbean, Azamara Club Cruises and Pearl Seas Cruises. (USA Today)
