After scoring government approval today, Seabourn Cruise Line will sail to Cuba from Miami and San Juan starting in fall 2019, becoming the third Carnival Corp. line approved to call on Cuba.

Seabourn will officially launch its Cuba schedule with an 11-day sailing on Seabourn Sojourn on Nov. 4, 2019. The rest of its schedule will include 11-day, 12-day, and 14 day sailings out of Miami with visits to five Cuban ports—Antilla (Nipe Bay), Cienfuegos, Havana, Punta Francés in Isla de Juventud, and Santiago de Cuba. All sailings will include overnight stops in Havana.

"We are excited to finally be able to include Cuba in our itineraries, and our guests and travel partners have been anxiously awaiting an ultra-luxury travel experience with a wider selection of destinations in this relatively undiscovered Caribbean treasure. These Cuba itineraries are fresh and sure to satisfy the curiosity of anyone who has considered visiting,” Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn said in a statement.

Some sailings will combine Cuban ports with calls at cities in other Caribbean nations—the Nov. 16 and Nov. 28, 2019 sailings include stops at West End, Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands, and Port Antonio Jamaica while the Dec. 21, 2019 sailing includes stops at Gustavia, St. Barthelemy; St. John’s, Antigua, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and more.

All of Seabourn’s Cuban sailings will cruise on the 458-guest Seabourn Sojourn.
