When Cuba became a viable cruise destination for the first time in decades, Carnival — via its Fathom line — was the first cruise line to make the historic voyage. And last month, Carnival made history again by deploying the Carnival Paradise to Cuba, making it the largest ship ever to sail to Havana. Coming in at 859 feet — and carrying 2,052 passengers — the Paradise beats her closest competitor, the Norwegian Sky by just under 30 feet.
