Please note: This unique cruise sets sail from Havana on a Monday
Day 1 - Havana (Overnight) Arrival
After boarding the vessel and checking into our cabins, we make our way to the outer deck for a welcome briefing and cocktail party with Mojitos, and Cuba Libres. Here you will meet our team of guides, lecturers, and shipboard staff, who will provide you with an overview of the week ahead and explain how things work on-board the ship.
Our meal tonight is our welcome dinner, showcasing a variety of traditional Cuban food. Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African and Caribbean recipes, and the result is a unique and flavourful blend of several cultural influences. We have gone to great lengths to deliver an incredible on-board food experience while you travel Cuba, and tonight will be no exception. Dine with fellow passengers, before retiring to the upper deck to wave good-bye as we set sail from the port of Havana.
Day 2 - Havana
Your Havana experience continues the next day, with more time to explore Havana. Return to Old Havana or cruise through modern Havana and past the spectacular sea wall, in classic vintage cars - just like in the movies.
After dinner, you can relax on the upper deck as we sail out of the harbour at sunset, past the imposing colonial forts guarding the port.
Day 3 - Havana - Punta Frances
Pine forests scent the “Isle of Youth” and mingle with orange blossoms and warm ocean breezes. We transfer you to the beach at Port Frances. This is a glorious beach of pure white sand surrounded by crystal clear warm waters - perfect for snorkelling. Enjoy your afternoon on the beach in the sunshine!
Day 4 - Punta Frances - Cienfuegos
On our optional shore excursions you can visit the colonial village of Trinidad, a World Cultural Heritage site, where the people are as warm and welcoming as the tropical sun. Its cobblestone streets, squares and colonial buildings harken back to a time of elegance and wealth. Tour the studios and galleries of some of Cuba's most famous artists, or shop for pottery and woodcarvings at local markets.
Day 5 - Cienfuegos - Montego Bay
Soak up the sun and let your troubles melt away, as you gaze across azure seas and the lush, rolling mountains surrounding Montego Bay. Well-known as the place to party, Montego Bay can be as exciting or relaxing as the activities you choose. Take in a round of golf. Enjoy fabulous duty-free shopping or browse the local crafts at open-air markets. Tour pineapple plantations, art galleries and gardens or dance to the vibrant beat of a Reggae band.
Day 6 - Montego Bay - Santaia de Cuba
Today you will be visiting one of the most historically significant places in Cuba; Santiago de Cuba.
We arrive at Santiago de Cuba after breakfast and will spend the entire day here. You will have several options to experience the region through onshore excursions and venturing off on your own. You may return to the ship at any time to relax and take a break.
As evening falls, you’ll re-board the vessel, for a relaxing cocktail party on the promenade deck, with authentic Cuban Mojitos, and Cuba Libres, while you meet our ship staff and on-board guides. Your Welcome Dinner will feature a delicious variety of authentic Cuban fare. Cuban is a fusion of Spanish, African and Caribbean cuisine, and we have gone to great lengths to deliver an outstanding gourmet dining experience.
After dinner, you can relax on the upper deck as we sail out of the harbour at sunset.
Day 7 - Santaia de Cuba - Havana

Lovely beach resort, nice clean rooms., buffet style food as you'd imagine, some days you could see some items were very limited. Live entertainment nightly & plenty of things going on during the day around the pool & on the beach. Generally, nice hotel & good weather always helps.
