Braemar will use Havana as its turnaround port when sailing the relaunched Caribbean itineraries

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has announced that its ship Braemar will use Havana, Cuba as a turnaround port for itineraries in its 2021-2022 Caribbean season.

“Too often the Caribbean is thought of as a single destination, but it is so much more than that, with so many islands offering different and unique yet equally exceptional experiences,” said Clare Ward, director of product and customer service at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. “Using Havana, Cuba, as our new turnaround base allows us to really showcase the Caribbean in all its glory. It also means we can offer extended stays into Havana so that our guests have plenty of time to enjoy this vibrant city, with late-night departures or overnight stays where possible.”

The cruise line is relaunching its Caribbean itineraries for next year. To celebrate the new turnaround port, Fred. Olsen will sail a virtual cruise around the islands of the Caribbean, including Basse-Terre in Guadeloupe, St. Kitts, Port Royal in Jamaica, and Havana.
