Carnival Cruise Line will sail Cuba cruises from three ports in 2020, including the line's first Cuba cruises from New York.

The Carnival Radiance (the current Carnival Victory that will undergo a $200 million transformation in March and April 2020) and the Carnival Sunrise (the current Carnival Triumph undergoing a $200 million redo in March and April 2019), will sail nine-day Cuba cruises from New York in the summer season.

The sailings from New York feature an overnight call in Havana and a stop at Carnival's private Bahamian destination, Half Moon Cay.

While homeported in New York, the Radiance will also sail Caribbean, Bermuda and Canada/New England cruises. 

Following its stint in New York, the Radiance will embark on a set of cruises from Norfolk, Va., including a pair of seven-day Cuba sailings with an overnight port stay in Havana. 

Then the Radiance will reposition to Port Canaveral, Fla., to operate a winter schedule of six- to eight-day voyages to the Caribbean and Cuba, beginning Nov. 8.  

While in New York, the Sunrise also will operate Caribbean and Bermuda sailings in the summer of 2020.
