Please note: This unique cruise sets sail from Montego Bay on a Friday.

Day 1 - Friday - Montego Bay, Jamaica

Your trip begins in the world famous Jamaican resort of Montego Bay.
Famed for its vibrant culture, breath-taking beaches and beautiful mountains, your trip of a life time will begin here. Enjoy the party atmosphere or take part in an array of activities. Perhaps enjoy a game of golf, browse through craft markets, tour pineapple plantations, art galleries, gardens or dance away. After boarding, and checking into your cabin, you will enjoy a welcome briefing and cocktail party – with Mojitos, and Cuba Libres on the outer deck. Here you will have the opportunity to meet the team of guides, and on-board staff, who will provide you with an overview of the week ahead and explain how things work on-board the ship.

Day 2 - Montego Bay, Jamaica - Santiago de Cuba

You will 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. Renowned for its Afro-Cuban music and culture, Santiago de Cuba was also very prevalent during Fidel Castro's revolution. Perhaps visit coffee plantations or learn about Cuba's production of rum and cigars. You may return to the ship at any time to relax and take a break.

Day 3 - Santiago de Cuba - Havana

At Sea

Day 4 - Havana - (Overnight)

Your meal will showcase 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. The crew 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 you set sail from the port of Havana.

Day 5 - Havana

Your Havana experience continues the next day, with more time to explore Havana. A blend of colonialism, capitalism, and Communism, this city boasts a charm like nowhere else. 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 you sail out of the harbour at sunset, past the imposing colonial forts guarding the port.

Day 6 - Havana

At Sea​​​​​​​​​​


Day 7 - Cienfuegos

Relish the tranquillity of Cienfuegos. Marvel at the impressive fortress, Castillo de Jagua or take an optional shore excursion to 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.
