Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings President and CEO Frank Del Rio kept watch on Seven Seas Mariner’s bridge as the ship pulled into the harbor with about 700 guests aboard.

Guests enjoyed a Cuban-style celebration onboard before the ship berthed in Havana. 

All tours offer guests an authentic Cuban experience that explores the people, music, art, history and culture, in compliance with the Office of Foreign Assets Control’s (OFAC) regulations. Seven Seas Mariner set sail April 11, 2017, on a seven-night, round-trip Caribbean voyage from Miami, and will overnight at Havana before continuing to Harvest Caye, Belize, and Costa Maya, Mexico. Seven Seas Mariner will sail April 18 on an identical itinerary that visits Cuba.
