Get a Taste of Cuba With MSC Cruises!

UPDATE: On June 4, 2019 the United States government announced immediate travel restrictions to Cuba. As a result, Cruises originating from the U.S. are no longer permitted to visit Cuba.

Discover the new 7-night Cuba and Caribbean itineraries on MSC Armonia departing from Miami! These amazing new MSC Cruises’ itineraries feature two days in Havana, Cuba, in addition to the best of Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Mexico. Enjoy an even richer itinerary across the Caribbean and dive into the local culture of Cuba through the people-to-people educational program.

MSC-Armonia-Cuba-MBJ-itini

 

MSC Cruises is the only cruise line offering a 7-night itinerary from Miami, featuring two days in Havana on one of the largest and most modern cruise ships calling Cuba. In addition, the attractive itinerary includes stops in Jamaica, Cayman Islands and Mexico, with only one day at sea. MSC Armonia has been recently and extensively overhauled, in late 2014. The ship has been tailored with a wide range of amenities and services for families; exquisite, varied dining offerings; outstanding, all-hours entertainment; a broad choice of relaxation and wellness options, and more, all provided with a touch of Mediterranean flair and flavor.

MSC-ShoreExcursionsDesk

All guests sailing to Cuba from Miami must either purchase and book people-to-people activities for each day they are planning to disembark in Cuba, certify that they are traveling under one of the other 12 general authorized license categories as defined by the U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), or hold a specific license issued by OFAC.

MSC Cruises will organize “people-to-people” shore excursions. The extensive tours have been designed to allow all guests to experience the best this unique cultural destination has to offer.

***Cruise Guests MAY NOT travel to Cuba with a driver’s license and/or birth certificate (including children).***
All cruisers who are not Cuban-born citizens will need the following documents:

  • PASSPORT BOOK – All passengers must have their Passport book and it must be valid at least 6 months after your cruise date (your passport card will NOT be accepted).

  • VALID U.S. VISA – documentation to enter the United States (when applicable, if guest is from another country outside of the USA)

Cuban-born, U.S. citizens are also permitted to sail, but will need additional documentation in order to travel. Cuban-born citizens who came to the U.S. on or after January 1, 1971 must travel to Cuba using their Cuban passports, but must use their U.S. passports to depart and re-enter the U.S. These guests do not need a visa, but will need a Passport Habilitation.
