Happy Sunday and happy unofficial start to summer, as the Memorial Day weekend here in the United States marks the start of the season for many.

Some cruise fans may have made plans for summer 2019 when Royal Caribbean announced this week its 2019 Cuba and short Caribbean itineraries for Majesty of the Seas and Empress of the Seas.

The new sailings are available for booking now, and run from April 2019 through the end of December 2019.

Both ships will offer cruises to Cuba that include stops at ports of call all around the Western Caribbean and the Bahamas.
