Norwegian Sun to Return to Cuba in April 2019
By Caribbean News Digital
Norwegian Sun will complete its first season of cruises to Cuba from Port Canaveral with its last departure Sept. 3, before heading to Miami for select sailings and then repositioning to South America for its fall/winter season.
The first and only homeported ship to cruise to Cuba from Port Canaveral, Norwegian Sun, during its summer season, welcomed over 30,000 guests on 15 voyages on four-day Cuba cruise itineraries with port of calls in Key West and an overnight in Havana, according to the cruise line.
Following this successful first season, NCL says Norwegian Sun will return to Port Canaveral in April 2019 with even more Cuba itineraries. Port Canaveral was Norwegian Sun’s first homeport, following a three-week, bow-to-stern renovation in April in Victoria, B.C. as part of The Norwegian Edge, the company’s fleet-wide rejuvenation program.
Built in 2001, Norwegian Sun now features refreshed staterooms and public spaces, and boasts three new venues including Los Lobos Cantina, Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spinnaker Lounge. All 968 staterooms were upgraded with smart TVs and USB ports as well as new carpet, artwork and select furniture.
