Discover old-world Havana and the vibrant history of Cuba with an all-new cruise from Seabourn. The luxury cruise line just received approval for multiday cruises from Miami and San Juan, Puerto Rico, departing Nov. 4, 2019.


While fall 2019 seems a world away now, families who cruise know booking early, especially on a new route, is key. One of the few brands approved for Cuban cruises, Seabourn is on an exclusive list.


Choose from four unique itineraries and five departure locations with excursions spanning 11–14 days.


While off-limits to American travelers for years and recently in an evolving state of accessibility, Cuba offers an allure unlike many other destinations surrounding the United States. While some tourists traveled to Cuba at the first available chance, many considered the country unprepared for that level of tourism. Travel backed off and found some balance, but excursion options still seem to be lacking a bit of luxury. Enter Seabourn.


Seabourn currently operates a fleet of five chic, modern luxury ships and is a member of World’s Leading Cruise Lines. In addition to its exclusive alliance with cruise lines such as Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, Costa Cruises, Holland America Line and Carnival Line, Seabourn is also in partnership with UNESCO to help protect World Heritage sites. Through strategic partnerships and planning, the cruise line offers luxury, accommodations and exceptional service to meaningful destinations with authentic, experience-based tours.


All Seabourn experiences offer intimate settings (less than 500 passengers onboard), an exclusive atmosphere, personalized service, custom voyages, all oceanfront suites, luxury design, complimentary wine and spirits and welcome Champagne in your room. Adults, be aware the in-suite bar will be stocked with your preferences.


All guests expect world-class dining in an open-seating setting — American travelers: Tipping is not expected or required, so when Seabourn says all-inclusive, they mean it.
