Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Sun returned to Port Canaveral this week and will call the Space Coast home for yet another season.  From Port Canaveral, Norwegian Sun will cruise to Havana, Cuba as well as short weekend jaunts to the Bahamas and Key West.

Beginning Monday, April 15, the Norwegian Sun will cruise four-, five- and seven-day voyages to Havana, Cuba.  The four-day cruises will include a port call to Key West. Also included ports of call during the Sun’s five- and seven-day voyages are Key West, Nassau or Norwegian’s private island beach at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.

“We are excited that the Norwegian Sun is returning for another season of cruises to Cuba,” Port CEO Capt. John Murray stated. “More than 30,000 guests sailed on cruises from the Port to Havana last year, and we’re pleased to be hosting more sailing opportunities this summer season.”

The 1,936-guest Norwegian Sun began its year-long cruises from the Space Coast this weekend with a three-night cruise to Key West and Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas.

Currently, Norwegian Sun is scheduled to cruise from Port Canaveral through April 26, 2020.
