Today, Pearl Seas Cruises, sister line to American Cruise Lines, announced their intention to explore various itinerary offerings for the island nation of Cuba. The announcement by Pearl Seas comes weeks after the United States announced a new normalization policy with the communist nation.
Pearl Seas hopes to begin sailing to Cuba in the near future from ports in South Florida and/or a number of other ports in the nearby nation of the Bahamas. Pearl Seas states their Cuba offerings would be unique due to the smaller size of their ships, opening a variety of smaller, more intimate ports around the island for their guests.
“Cuba has been on our radar for quite some time,” said a spokesperson for Pearl Seas Cruises. “Our small ships are perfect for exploring the most beautiful areas by docking in small towns or in the heart of historic cities in addition to Havana. Many ports require infrastructural changes to accommodate larger ships, but we can visit easily.”
Pearl Seas states they hope to announce additional details on these exclusive sailings in the coming months.
