Silversea has launched its first collection of voyages to Cuba.

A total of 17 itineraries are available, sailing in 2019 and 2020.

The first sailing in the programme is the seven-night voyage on Silver Wind, departing 14 February 2019. The itinerary will include visits to the Cuban cities of Havana and Santiago de Cuba, and the Bahamian island of Bimini.

In addition, the recently lengthened Silver Spirit departs San Juan on a 10-night voyage on 22 February 2019. 

Roberto Martinoli, Silversea’s CEO, said: “Cuba is a remarkable island and we are delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to discover the most authentic sights, sounds and flavours of its culture, as they connect with its people on thoughtfully orchestrated voyages.”

Peter Shanks, Silversea’s managing director for the UK & Ireland, added: “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Cuba to our 2019 and 2020 voyage collections.

“Cuba is arguably the fastest growing destination in the Caribbean, and one that many luxury travellers are eager to explore, knowing that they can be uniquely enriched by a fresh perspective on the people, traditions and natural wonders of this island nation.”

Silversea recently announced plans to add three new ships to its fleet, including one expedition ship for the Galapagos.
