Sailing on October 25, 2017 from Tampa, Florida - Billy's Bearfoot Cruises will sail for 5 nights onboard Royal Caribbean's Empress of the Seas to Havana, Cuba along with ports of call to Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico.
Cuba has just recently opened up as a cruise destination, so we are thrilled to be able to secure group space to take the bears to Cuba. As you can imagine, Cuba does not have the infrastructure to support the thousands of cruise guests that the biggest ships in the world carry, so the cruise lines that have permission to sail to Cuba are using their smallest ships in their fleet. The Empress of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's "old lady" of the fleet and the smallest ship they operate, so that said - we wont have the 'bell's and whistles' of some of the other ships we sailed on. That said, being the smallest ship in the fleet means the crew onboard have fewer guests to serve and as such the Empress has the title of the friendliest ship in the fleet!
Pricing for this cruise: Interior rooms are priced from $660 per person, Ocean view rooms are priced from $811 per person.
