Azamara Club Cruises is responding to demand for Cuba visits by adding four new sailings from Miami next year.

The small ship line is adding calls into Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba to its overnight stops in Havana.

Multiple overnights give passengers the opportunity to stay longer and experience the local night life.

President and chief executive Larry Pimentel said: “Interest in travelling to Cuba from both new and loyal guests is undeniable.

“Destination immersion is the heartbeat of our brand, so naturally we wanted to deliver authentic experiences in Cuba – from new ports to unique land discovery offerings – that truly bring the country’s rich history, culture and people to life.”

Azamara runs two identical 690-passenger ships of the same type used by Carnival Corporation ‘social impact’ brand Fathom last year to open up sailings to Cuba from the US for the first time in decades.

While the Fathom branded ship has been returned to sister company P&O Cruises as Adonia after a pioneering first year of Cuba sailings, other US lines are now visiting the island including Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings brands, Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International.
