Royal Caribbean has announced sailings to Cuba in 2017.

The announcement comes just days after receiving approval by the Cuban government to offer cruises.

The Empress of the Seas is offering a few different itineraries, both from Miami and Tampa.

The first sailing is scheduled for April 19, 2017; a 5-night cruise from Miami to Costa Maya, Mexico and Havana, Cuba.

Two other sailings are also available for booking, each departing from Tampa.
