Oceania Cruises’ Marina arrived in Sierra Maestra cruise terminal in Havana, Cuba last week, carrying 1,250 guests. It made the company the first major North American brand to travel to Cuba.
Oceania Cruises’ co-founder and CEO, Bob Binder, was on board for the event, with CEO of parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings also present. Once docked, Del Rio addressed international media regarding the inaugural voyage.
The 14-day sailing departed from Miami on March 7 and was set to continue on to Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama Colombia, and the Cayman Islands. Oceania Cruises has two more sailings to Cuba scheduled this March, with another six scheduled for the autumn.
