Cuba Cruises

What can I expect on a cruise to Cuba?

  • Cuban culture: It’s more than cigars, sugar, and rum. Cuba has a vibrant, exciting culture, from the dramatic dance moves of mambo and rumba to the spicy flavors of ropa vieja and mojo marinade.
  • Shore excursions: If you need help planning , simply book a tour and let the tour guides show you around. Old Havana (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the former home of famed author Ernest Hemingway, and Almacenes San José Artisans Market are just a few of the sights you’ll see.
  • Great cruise deals: We  offer the best prices on Cuban cruises, plus special offers like shore  excursion discounts, on-board credits, and free Wi-Fi.

Where can I visit on a Cuba cruise?

  • Key West: The Florida  Keys are the essence of laid-back, tropical vibes, and Key West is their  capital. Wander among pastel houses and snorkel or dive the coral reefs at this  popular cruise destination .
  • Ocho Rios: You can’t  resist this northern coastal town’s dramatic waterfalls, coastline, and  rainforest—not to mention the pristine beach.    
  • Grand Cayman: Shop ’til you drop in glitzy George Town and lounge on Seven Mile Beach with the rich and famous. It’s no wonder that this Caribbean island is a popular stop for cruise ships visiting Cuba.
  • Western Caribbean:  Other cruise destinations in the Western Caribbean include the sparkling waters  of Cozumel and the Mayan ruins of Costa Maya, Mexico, and the famed diving of  Roatan, Honduras, home to the world’s second largest coral reef.

Which cruise ship to Cuba is  right for me?

  • Royal Caribbean: You  can’t go wrong with a cruise  line that has “Caribbean” in the name, right? Add in a great ship name  like Empress of the Seas ,  and you know you’re in for a legendary good time.
  • Norwegian  Cruise Line: Offering 4- and 5-day cruises to Cuba departing from Miami,  Florida, the Norwegian Sun  and Norwegian Sky cruise  ships are great options for those who just want a quick itinerary.
  • MSC  Cruises: Cruise with a touch of luxury on this Swiss cruise line’s  Caribbean ship, the MSC  Armonia . Kids 11 and younger sail free, but with adults-only pools and 24-hour  room service, this line appeals to all ages.

The Best Cruises from Miami to Cuba

Cuba sits a mere 90 miles from the coast of Florida, but for the past 50 years it may as well have been on the other side of the world, due to regulations that made it a forbidden land for American citizens to visit.

But in the last two years, the U.S. government lifted that ban, making it much easier for tour operators to bring Americans to this fascinating Caribbean island awash with sugar-white beaches, striking Spanish-colonial architecture, 1950s-era cars, pulsating salsa and cabaret clubs, and mouth-watering cuisine. Below we’ve picked out three of the best cruises to Cuba from Miami.

The 10 Best Cuba Cruises

[Editor’s Note: Due to Trump administration-imposed travel restrictions to Cuba as of June 2019, cruise ships have been effectively banned from bringing American travelers to the island nation. The Associated Press reports that would-be cruisers who have already booked their trips prior to the policy change will still be permitted to travel, though details on the process remain murky; check in with individual operators for the latest updates.]

There’s perhaps no sweeter travel proposition than taking that proverbial bite out of once-forbidden fruit . . . and juicy Cuba , with its vibrant culture, lively locals, rich history, and transporting tropical setting, is ripe for the picking. However, despite it being the largest of the Caribbean islands—situated a mere 90 miles from the United States—the destination can feel frustratingly out of reach, thanks to the logistical hoop-jumping required of American travelers , even with thawed U.S.-Cuba relations in recent years.

Happily, cruising makes a Cuba vacation a breeze, seamlessly bundling lodging, transport, and excursions and managing all of the required red tape for guests, because the trips are aligned with current U.S. government travel requirements (for travelers, that means going on preapproved cultural/educational exchanges, via a “people-to-people” visa).

Indeed, cruise lines have seized upon this convergence of eased regulations and pent-up traveler demand to service Cuba, with available itinerary options skyrocketing in recent years. Their recipe has had resonance: Cruising lets you get around the large island in ease, from a comfortable home base, with plentiful excursion options while offering relative affordability compared to land-based vacations.

Of course, this ain’t your typical sun-and-surf Caribbean cruise (although it’s got plenty of that, too). Maybe you’ve got your heart set on history-rich Havana (it turns 500 years old in 2019), with its time-warp 1950s classic cars, crumbling colonial buildings, and storied night spots (such as the Tropicana or Buena Vista Social Club). Or perhaps you want to see the country’s second-largest city and Cuban Revolution–cradle at Santiago de Cuba or visit Cienfuegos, with its UNESCO-protected city center. Whatever your interests, there’s a cruise to match.

Upscale cruise line SeaDream started sailing to Cuba in 2019, with immersive itineraries on voyages between Havana and Cienfuegos.

SeaDream Plush mega-yacht line SeaDream kicked off its Cuban presence in early 2019, with a portfolio of eight “Cuba Collection” voyages aboard its 112-passenger SeaDream II ; the line offers an additional eight sailings to Cuba in 2020, aboard its 112-guest SeaDream I . The seven- to nine-night immersive itineraries sail between Havana and Cienfuegos (and vice versa) with an exclusive focus on Cuban ports along the island’s western coastline, including some lesser-visited locales like Trinidad, Cayo Largo, Isla de Juventud, and María la Gorda. Excursion highlights include a night out at a Cuban cabaret in Havana (with transfers via a classic car) or a snorkeling trip on the pristine coral reefs of Bahía de Corrientes. Sailings from January through March 2020; rates from $4,599/person; seadream.com

Virgin Voyages The most buzzed-about new cruise line on the horizon is Richard Branson–brainchild Virgin Voyages, carving out an industry niche with its stylish, adults-only, party-hearty cruise model. When the line debuts its first ship, the 2,770-passenger Scarlet Lady , in April 2020, its maiden voyage will feature an overnight stop in Havana. The ship goes on to host a season of four- and five-night Cuban voyages from Miami , all inclusive of an overnight call in Cuba’s capital, as well as a stop in Bimini in the Bahamas . Excursion and onboard programming details are forthcoming, but the ship is a welcomed retreat with sweet features like 20-plus dining options, ocean-facing cabanas, a vinyl shop, and the first tattoo studio at sea. Sailings from April through October 2020; rates from $1,500/person; virginvoyages.com

Oceania Cruises Luxe Oceania runs a robust range of Cuba-inclusive itineraries, including a slate of convenient seven- to 11-night voyages round-trip out of Miami, aboard the recently revamped 684-passenger Insignia or Sirena . Itineraries vary slightly, but typically include overnights in Havana, as well as calls in Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba (a few of the longer itineraries feature rare-for-the-industry overnight stays in those two cities, too, for fuller immersion). Choose from excursions like an arts tour of colonial Cienfuegos or a farm-to-fork culinary outing in Havana. Sailings in July 2019 and from September 2019 through March 2020; rates from $1,499/person; oceaniacruises.com

Seabourn Cruise Line Swank Seabourn is making way for an inaugural season in Cuba in late 2019. Book one of five 11- to 25-night sailings running round-trip out of Miami (or between Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico) aboard the 458-passenger Seabourn Sojourn (featuring a Thomas Keller–backed dining venue on board). Itineraries differ but include overnight stays in Havana, Cienfuegos, and occasionally Santiago de Cuba, as well as calls in Isla de la Juventud and/or Antilla, along with other Caribbean stops sprinkled in (such as the Cayman Islands , Jamaica , or the Dominican Republic ). Sailings in November and December 2019; rates from $4,999/person; seabourn.com

Havana turns 500 years old in 2019, and visiting is a step back in time, complete with ubiquitous 1950s classic cars.

Viking Viking’s ocean arm runs weeklong winter cruises to Cuba round-trip out of Miami. Sail the 930-guest, all-veranda Viking Sky on immersive itineraries that include four full days docked in Cuba via an extended three-day port call in Cienfuegos; excursions from that city can be arranged for a tour of colonial Trinidad or an overnight hotel-based excursion to Havana. The ship also includes a one-day stop in Santiago de Cuba. Back on board, luxuriate in one of two pools (including an infinity pool at the ship’s stern) or at the Scandinavian-inspired LivNordic Spa. Sailings in January, February, and November 2020; rates from $2,599/person; vikingcruises.com

[Editor’s Note: Following the engine failure of the Viking Sky in Norway in March 2019, a Viking spokesperson assured AFAR of the following:“The safety and well-being of our guests and our crew is always our first priority. An initial independent investigation into the incident identified a potential oil lubrication issue, as a result of this we have adjusted our policies and procedures to ensure that this issue could not be repeated.”]

Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian offers carefree, quick-hit voyages to Cuba out of Miami (on the 2,004-passenger Norwegian Sky ) and Port Canaveral (aboard the 1,936-guest Norwegian Sun ), with four- and five-night trips that bundle in a full open-bar on each sailing (yes, mojitos are included!). Choose from itineraries that pair an overnight stay in Havana with stops in Key West or Norwegian’s private Bahamian island at Great Stirrup Cay. Shore excursions include tours of Havana in classic American cars, performances at venues like the Tropicana or Buena Vista Social Club, or art outings to hip contemporary arts venue Fábrica de Arte Cubano . Upgrade a sailing on either of the recently renovated ships with a suite-level stay for extra perks like priority embarkation/disembarkation, free Wi-Fi, and specialty dining passes. Year-round sailings; rates from $249/person; ncl.com

Silversea Cruises Newly launched in early 2019, the small ships of all-inclusive, butler-serviced Silversea now sail to Cuba, with a series of winter voyages running round-trip out of Fort Lauderdale. Choose from some dozen sailings in 2020 aboard the recently refurbished, 298-passenger Silver Wind . Voyage details vary but may include an overnight in Havana and a call in Santiago de Cuba (sometimes overnighting there), or (more rarely) Cienfuegos, plus visits to spots like Key West or Bimini. Choose from 34 shore excursions: Take in jazz at a Havana club or visit Cojímar, the seaside village that inspired Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. Sailings from January through March 2020; from $3,330/person; silversea.com

Variety Cruises Greece-based Variety Cruises (in partnership with “people-to-people” Cuba program specialists Beyond Cruises) offers fall and winter sailings aboard its 49-guest three-masted sailing ship Panorama . On seven-night routes between Cienfuegos and Havana (or in reverse), itineraries incorporate less-trafficked Cuban locales like Trinidad, María la Gorda, and Isla de la Juventud. On-the-ground small-group excursions emphasize cultural immersion via encounters with local artists and artisans: Meet with musicians behind the Buena Vista Social Club or with an artisan in a woodcarving studio in Trinidad, for instance. Sailings in November 2019, January 2020, and February 2020; rates from $2,717/person; varietycruises.com

Carnival Cruise Line Carnival—best known more for its splashy, mass-market “fun ships”—is notable in the Cuban market for sheer numbers: The line has over 100 Cuba sailings scheduled through 2020, running from more U.S. homeports than any other cruise line, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Canaveral, and Tampa, with soon-to-launch options out of Charleston, New York , and Norfolk. The range of three- to nine-night itineraries incorporate either full-day or overnight calls in Havana, coupled with stops in other Caribbean-region ports like Cozumel, Key West, and Nassau. On board the five 2,052- to 3,006-passenger ships servicing the region ( Carnival Sunshine will be the largest ship to call on Havana when it starts the first-ever Cuba cruises from Charleston in November 2019), guests can expect Cuban-themed music, deck parties, lectures, and salsa dance lessons, too. Year-round sailings; rates from $309/person; carnival.com

Pearl Seas Cruises Pearl Seas Cruises offers 11-night Cuba cruises that sail round-trip from Fort Lauderdale aboard the 210-passenger Pearl Mist . The itinerary incorporates overnight calls in Havana and Santiago de Cuba, as well as in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, and the more rarely visited seaport town of Casilda, taking in all the requisite outings en route (cruising Havana in a classic car, trailing Hemingway, listening to steel drums). Sailings from October through December 2019; rates from $5,335/person; pearlseascruises.com

Things to Do on a Cuba Cruise with Carnival Cruise Lines

Dive in and have an authentic Cuban experience with a Carnival cruise to Cuba. You can sample delicious Cuban cuisine that the chefs take a tremendous amount of pride in creating. Travel the Havana streets in one of the famous ‘50s and ‘60s vintage vehicles that dominate the roads. When you are in Cuba, you truly feel as though you have been transported back in time. The pace is slower, food is fresher and people are nicer – and eager to share everything the island has to offer! Check out some of The Cruise Web’s recommended Cuba, Mexico, and Key West excursions below:

El Morro Fort in Cuba

  • Walking Tour of Old Havana and El Morro Fortress (Havana, Cuba) Discover Havana’s colonial past and some of its famous historical sites. You’ll visit the Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabana fortress, which was integral in protecting Havana from pirates. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage with local residents working to preserve Cuban heritage and history, then you’ll continue your tour of Old Havana – a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

Cuban Food

  • Havana Traditions and Flavors Tour (Havana, Cuba) Cuba has a strong culture and you’ll experience it best in the food, art, and music of Havana. During this tour you’ll sample traditional Cuban cuisine at a local restaurant, enjoy a live music performance, and learn about the ‘Cuban Marriage’ – a perfect combination of coffee, cigars, and rum – and how to enjoy them like a Cuban.  

Vintage Cars in Havana, Cuba

  • Best of Havana Tour (Havana, Cuba) Want to experience the best of Havana in one day? Then this is the perfect tour for you! A few of the activities you’ll enjoy are: visiting a Cuban community project, exploring the Fortress de San Carlos de la Cabana, learning the cryptic symbolism present in the one of the largest Caribbean cemeteries, and learning how residents built Cuba’s iconic architecture.  

Swimming with Dolphins - Carnival Cruise Lines

  • Swim with the Dolphins (Cozumel, Mexico) Interact with dolphins at Cozumel’s only certified dolphin park! After a brief training session on dolphin behavior, you’ll be fitted with a life vest and get to play around with the marine mammals! First a belly rub, then a dolphin kiss, and finally an unforgettable swim. Other optional activities include a sea lion show, snorkeling, and – of course – relaxing on the beach.  

Parasailing in the Caribbean

  • Key West Parasailing (Key West, Florida) Treat yourself to magnificent views of Key West and its beachfront by soaring hundreds of feet above the ocean! You’ll experience the thrills of an offshore powerboat ride, parachuting, ballooning, and gliding. It’s a perfect way to truly see the natural beauty of Key West, Florida.  

Beach in Cozumel, Mexico
