onsidering a cruise to Cuba? If it seems like every cruise line is now sailing to Cuba, it’s because most of them are. The Caribbean island nation has been making headlines lately as control of its government shifts from the Castro regime (Fidel, and since 2008, his brother Raul) to its new president Miguel Diaz-Canel). What’s more, travel restrictions put into effect by the U.S. government in November 2017 (after they were eased in 2015 by former President Obama) mean there are many can’t-do’s for Americans visiting Cuba — namely staying at government-affiliated hotels, purchasing from prohibited stores or paying with credit cards — which has made cruising more logistically sensible than ever before. But because there are so many options, here are seven things to consider before you book a cruise to Cuba. Which cruise lines are offering Cuba Itineraries? There’s a Cuba cruise for every style and budget, from a long-weekend sailing to Havana priced from $399 per person, to a more immersive seven-to-10-night itinerary to several Cuba ports offering insights on history and culture and costing more than $3,000 per person.
