Virgin Voyages’ first ship, Scarlet Lady, will call on Cuba during its 2020 inaugural season. The decision reflects the extremely high interest in Cuba as a destination. Virgin Atlantic Airways has been serving Cuba for 13 years, and It makes logical sense to include their newest ship, the iconic Scarlet Lady in Havana’s Harbor. Havana is the perfect place for guests to go and experience a city that exudes an irresistible energy and passion. Havana offers the chance for guests to create their own unique stories as they uncover cultural treasures, meet the locals and just soak up the atmosphere.”
Virgin Voyages will sail to Cuba from Port of Miami. Itineraries will include an overnight stay in Havana. Shore offerings will comport with the people-to-people regulations currently in place by the US government. Specific details about shore excursions will be available in 2019. Virgin Voyages will service a new demographic of travelers to Cuba, which will greatly benefit the Cuban economy and the Cuban people. The Virgin brand is a perfect match for the incredible music, art and dance that Cuba offers.
Virgin Voyages has joined the ranks of several other high-end lines visiting Cuba. Those lines include Silversea, Seabourn, PONANT, SeaDream and Regent Seven Seas.
