Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans for a major expansion of Cuba cruises.

The company has added another 20 cruises to Cuba on in its Carnival Paradise ship out of Tampa.

The new cruises, which will begin operations in 2019, will complement Carnival’s existing 11 cruises to Cuba.

Carnival had already announced another 17 cruises to Cuba on Carnival Sensation sailing out of Miami in 2019.

“Our Cuba cruises have been met with phenomenal guest response since we began sailing to the island last year and we’re thrilled to add yet another 20 voyages to this fascinating and sought-after destination,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

The new five-day Cuba cruises on Carnival Paradise will depart Tampa on Saturdays and include either a day-long or full day and overnight call to Havana, along with stops in Key West and Cozumel.
