Oceania Cruises has announced its first three inaugural voyages from Miami to Cuba. The cruise line has been given official approval from the Cuban government to operate cruises to Cuba starting from March 2017.
The new voyages will be on board the Marina, and include one 14-day and two 10-day cruises, departing from Miami. The ship, the first purpose-built for the Oceania brand, already showcases a collection of Cuban-American art.
Each voyage will visit the Cuban capital Havana, with two of the voyages including an overnight stay and two full days in the city.
Fares start from A$2,430 per guest.
Weather to go
Cuba is relatively warm all year round, with an average temperature of 25°C in winter and 31°C in summer, meaning that visitors can enjoy lovely weather no matter when they choose to visit Cuba. If you're looking to avoid rain, try not to travel in June as it has the highest average rainfall of 80mm. If you enjoy swimming, plan a trip in August when the average sea temperate is a comfortable 30°C.
