After years of not being able to visit, Americans can finally immerse themselves in the storied culture of this long-forbidden island. From cigars to mojitos, music, coffee, and art, Cuba’s personality is distinct, and has been long protected from change. Now, Norwegian Cruise Line can take you there. Here’s why this should be the next trip to check off your bucket list.

1. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Free at Sea All-Inclusive* promotion adds value to your vacation.

Take advantage with this exclusive offer* when you sail to Cuba with Norwegian. Choose up to 5 free offers, including specialty dining in the line's impressive array of restaurants, shore excursions, WiFi, a photo package, or friends and family sail free. Plus, you’ll enjoy free unlimited open bar throughout your cruise.

2. Sailings include an overnight in Havana.

Unlike some cruises, which hurry you through the city and back onboard, Norwegian stays overnight in the port of Havana, offering the opportunity to hang out with locals and immerse yourself in the destination without feeling rushed. Sip locally-made piña coladas (made with real coconut cream), explore the streets by night, or settle into the Tropicana nightclub for a captivating, vibrant night of entertainment. The best part? You don’t have to worry about transportation or accommodation.

3. The shore excursions are unforgettable.

You can watch cigars being rolled by hand, learn the proper way to muddle mint for a mojito, and much more. Norwegian’s cruise itineraries bring the culture of the island right to you. You can explore the Cuban art collection at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, or take a guided tour of Old Havana to look at the architecture and the city’s famous classic cars. 

4. Norwegian lets you sail from two embarkation ports.

You can choose from four-day, roundtrip cruises to Havana — plus a stop in the Bahamas or Key West — from either Miami or Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida. This lets you pick the embarkation port that saves you the most money on airfare, and gives you the option of extending your trip in either port destination. 

5. Back onboard, you’ll find a complimentary open bar.

Drinks are included on all sailings to Cuba on Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun, so you can start the day with a mimosa or Bloody Mary, enjoy frozen drinks in the sunshine, have wine when you dine on The Waterfront, or order after-dinner cocktails on your way to catch one of the ship's award-winning entertainment options. It's an incredible value, and one that you’ll toast to again and again.
