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. 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 we sail out of the harbour at sunset, past the imposing colonial forts guarding the port.
Day 3 - At Sea
Day 4 - 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.
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 - Santiago 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. 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.
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. 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 - Santiago de Cuba - Havana
