Norwegian Cruise Line opened sales for cruises to Cuba and beyond aboard Norwegian Sun round-trip from Miami for a limited season this fall.

Included are seven-, nine- and 13-day sailings.

This will be the first time the brand has featured a call in Havana on cruises of seven days and longer, president and CEO Andy Stuart noted. The itineraries offer a culturally immersive full day and evening in Havana, along with several visits to other destinations in the Caribbean and beyond.

Norwegian Sun will sail six seven-day cruises from Miami departing on Sundays from Sept. 9 through Oct. 14. Besides Havana, Norwegian Sun will cruise to Great Stirrup Cay, Costa Maya and Harvest Caye, Belize. The ship’s nine-day cruises will expand upon the weeklong sailings with additional visits to Roatán in Honduras and Cozumel.

Norwegian Sun’s new 13-day Cuba, Caribbean and the Panama Canal cruise departing from Miami on Oct. 30 visits eight destinations including Puerto Limón, Costa Rica; Cartagena and Santa Marta, Colombia; and Oranjestad, Aruba, among others.

Norwegian also added a new five-day cruise to Cuba and the Bahamas from Port Canaveral on Sept. 3. This will round out the ship’s season sailing from Central Florida with an afternoon visit to Key West, then Havana for an overnight stay, followed by a beach day at Great Stirrup Cay.
