Royal Caribbean International is about to give travelers even more opportunity to visit Cuba. Empress of the Seas will be offering new sailings to Havana from January 2018 to March 2019; 58 four and five-night cruises to be exact. Over half of those voyages will offer an overnight stay in the vibrant city, as well.
The ship will return to Tampa for summer 2018, offering a series of four and five-night cruises stopping in Key West, Costa Maya, and Cozumel, as well as Havana on most sailings. It will then reposition to Port Everglades for the winter, continuing short Caribbean voyages. Currently, Empress of the Seas sails from Tampa through November 4. The vessel will return to Miami for winter 2017-2018 adding calls to CocoCay and Nassau.
The exciting Cuban culture will extend beyond land to the onboard experience, too. From cortaditos and café con leche in Café Royal to salsa music and dancing in Boleros Latin Lounge, guests will be able to take advantage of a variety of activities developed to bring the spirit of the island to life throughout the entire trip.
