Luxury cruise line Seabourn will start sailing to Cuba for the first time late next year, on a series of four itineraries that will hit multiple ports on the island, including Cienfuegos, Havana and Santiago de Cuba.

The first of the trips aboard the Seabourn Sojourn will leave Miami on November 4 for a 12-day itinerary that’ll visit Cuba as well as Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

Other trips, including one that departed San Juan, Puerto Rico, and will spend New Year’s Eve sailing between Antilla, Cuba, and Havana, are also on the lineup, the company announced today.

The launch comes at an interesting time for travel to Cuba, as arrivals from the U.S. have dropped significantly in 2018, even though it remains legal to visit.

Yet cruise tourism remains a bright spot for the country: While the Seabourn trips are new, the line’s parent company, Carnival Corporation, has been sailing to Cuba since 2016, aboard ships like the Carnival Paradise and Holland America’s ms Veendam.

Other cruise lines including Norwegian and Royal Caribbean have also embraced Havana, and the city expects to triple the capacity of its cruise port by 2024.

The Sojourn has room for just 458 passengers, and it’s an all-suite vessel that’s one of five operated by Seabourn, the world’s top small ship cruise line, according to our Readers’ Choice Awards survey.
