There are more cruises to Cuba. Small ship line Celeystal Cruises is also starting another season of Cuba sailings this winter. Tour operators such as Central Holidays are also using that line's ships for "people to people" exchange itineraries around the island.
China is a hot commodity when it comes to cruising. Throughout the year, cruise lines continued to allocate ships for Chinese sourcing. Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas is now sailing year-round from Shanghai and is selling for 35 percent higher than it was selling in the Caribbean earlier this year. In the past few months, Carnival Corporation said it will launch a domestic Chinese brand and Carnival Cruise Lines said it will send two ships to China. Norwegian Cruise Line plans to enter with a Breakaway-Plus class vessel, and MSC’s Lirica will home port in China in 2016, among other moves. Royal Caribbean will have multiple vessels in China as well.
What are you up for? Will it be the Dominican Republic, Cuba, or China?
