Cuba Cruises From Norfolk, Virginia

UPDATE: On June 4, 2019 the United States government announced immediate travel restrictions to Cuba. As a result, Cruises originating from the United States are no longer permitted to visit Cuba.

So close, yet so far away. Until recently, this is how most Americans would describe Cuba. Only 90 miles from the American mainland, Cuba has been terra incognita to U.S. residents for over 50 years. But not anymore. You can now experience this beautiful Caribbean island and its vibrant capital, Havana, on one of a few Carnival Cruise ships.

CCL-Cuba-cars-havana
Book your cabin now on Carnival Radiance 7-nights Cuba Cruise sailing from Norfolk, Virginia on October 18, or October 25, 2020. These unique and special sailings also offers port stops on Nassau and Freeport Bahamas.
We highly recommend booking early so you can establish a comfortable payment plan and secure your cabin location sooner rather than later once the required minimum deposit amount is met to do so.

Cruise rates are currently starting from;

• $779 per person – Interior/Inside Stateroom Category
• $1,209 per person = Balcony Stateroom Category
Taxes/Port Fees and Gratuities are an additional cost per stateroom. All rates quoted and special offers are subject to change prior to booking with payment.

CCL_Cuban-cigars

Cruisers to Cuba are required to have a valid Passport and Visa. You will also incur and additional $75 Visa Fee which Carnival will apply to your shipboard sailing account once onboard the ship as Carnival will be processing your Visa requirements for you.

We strongly encourage the purchase of a Trip/Travel Insurance plan for travel to all international destinations including Cuba.

Carnival’s daytime excursions meet the “people-to-people” requirements that allows you to visit Cuba, but they’re more than just a rubber-stamp exercise. These excursions provide the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Cuban culture and learn about its history and people, while enjoying all the country has to offer.
The unique history and culture of Cuba has made it a destination unlike any other Caribbean island nation. Make plans with us now to go see for yourself how its past has affected Cuba and the lives of its people.

Sailings from Norfolk, Va are few and far between and will sell out fast so don’t hesitate to grab your stateroom reservation on the Carnival Radiance to Cuba in 2020 NOW!  TLC Travels’ Tours & Cruises!
