Norwegian dives into the Cuba cruise market

Chicago Tribune

Norwegian Cruise Line made its maiden voyage to Havana in May, kicking off the first of 30 Cuba cruises offered this year on the Norwegian Sky.

The 2,004-passenger vessel is the largest of a handful of cruise ships sailing from the U.S. to Cuba.

Starting in March, Norwegian Sky plans to make 33 additional trips in 2018 to the island nation, with 32 of those including an overnight stay in the Cuban capital.

Prices start at $629 per person for an inside cabin, making the weekly sailings a relatively affordable and easy way to experience Havana.

The four-night, round-trip cruises from Miami offer the choice of 14 half- and full-day shore excursions, including a tour of modern Havana in an American classic car.

In addition to an overnight in Havana, the itinerary stops at Great Stirrup Cay, Norwegian's private island in the Bahamas.
