Carnival Cruise Lines

Cuba is definitely the ‘in’ place to visit at the moment! Since the embargo was lifted by the USA it is the destination that all the Cruise Lines are trying to get on board with ( excuse the pun! ). The latest one to announce they are making more visits to this Caribbean Island, is Carnival Cruise Lines.

The Carnival Sensation, which received a multi million dollar refurbishment just last year, will be based out of Miami in 2019 and will be operating a selection of 5 night itineraries, featuring Cuba.

During her refurbishment the ship has been enhanced with some of Carnival’s most popular on board restaurants and bars. She will now feature Guys Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina and The Alchemy Bar. A new childrens club has also been added.

Both ships will also feature Cuba themed entertainment to get guests in to the latino spirit! Expect Salsa Lessons, Havana inspired deck parties and ‘Amor Cubano’ which is a popular theatre production featured on Carnival Vista.
