Carnival Sensation will become the second ship in the fleet to sail to Cuba following in the footsteps of Carnival Paradise which we’ll take a look at later. Carnival Sensation will offer 17 new sailings which will include a day-long call in Havana, Cuba. These will be 5-day cruises which will also visit Grand Turk, Grand Cayman, Nassau, and the private destinations of Half Moon Cay and Princess Cays.

“Our inaugural cruises to Cuba aboard Carnival Paradise from Tampa were met with exceptional guest response and we’re thrilled to expand upon the program with our first Cuba cruises from Miami featuring Havana and some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and The Bahamas.”
“Cuba is a sought-after destination and we’re delighted to provide our guests with even more opportunities to experience and explore this fascinating island.”
