Oceania Cruises adds 10 new Cuba sailings for 2018

Oceania Cruises has announced a new series of 10 cruises to Cuba next year on its newest ship, 684-passenger Sirena.

The sailings, which include stops in Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba, will run from May 4 to October 26, 2018. Sirena will be the second Oceania ship running Cuba sailings next year, as 684-passenger Regatta will also cruise to the island in fall 2018.

Oceania is already committed to Cuba in 2017, with six sailings on Insignia in the fall. All in all, the line has 20 trips that include stops in Cuba through next year.

At the industry’s Seatrade Cruise Global conference earlier this month, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings CEO and president, Frank Del Rio, spoke passionately about Cuba, noting that it could be a major force in the cruise business. “Cuba’s going to be a home run for us,” he said.
