The nine newly announced Cuba voyages from Charleston are among 23 new Cuba sailings for 2019 that Carnival revealed Thursday.
Carnival announced nine Cuba sailings for 2019 out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on the Carnival Triumph and one Cuba trip out of Tampa on the Carnival Paradise. Also announced were four Cuba sailings out of Miami on the Carnival Victory and Carnival Sensation.
The sailings are in addition to a series of 2019 sailings to Cuba out of Miami and Tampa announced in February and April, respectively.
Carnival is just one of several cruise lines expanding Cuba offerings. In February, rival Norwegian Cruise Line announced it would add seven-, nine- and 13-night Cuba sailings to its schedule. Until then, Norwegian only had offered four-night Cuba sailings.
Carnival and Norwegian are among more than a dozen cruise lines that have begun Cuban sailings over the past year.
