As the Caribbean's largest island, Cuba boasts stunning beaches, magnificent scenery and lush green landscapes. Yet with its history of communist struggle, Cuba offers an intrigue and timeless charm seldom found elsewhere. Its distinctive architecture and eclectic picture of colonial buildings, built on former wealth, now bustle with 50s cars and a vibrant energy, made only more prevalent by the unfaltering survivalist spirit and contagious charm of the Cubans themselves. This cruise is the perfect way to explore the many jewels of Cuba.

More Information On Ports Of Call:
- Cienfuegos, Cuba
The lovely neo-classical homes and elegant public buildings lining the Prado, Cienfuegos mile-long main boulevard, evoke the spirit of the origins of this gracious city on the Bahia de Cienfuegos. Founded in 1819 by French immigrants, Cienfuegos is a World Heritage Site which, because of the relative isolation of Cuba, has escaped the ravages of many modern cities. Architectural highlights of the city and nearby Punta Gorda include the fanciful Palacio de Valle, the Jagua Fortress, the luxuriant Jardin Botanico, the Cathedral and the Victorian-era yacht club.
- Casilda, Cuba (Trinidad)
Five hundred years ago, cane sugar became the first export from Cuba and it was the impetus for the founding of Trinidad. Plaza Mayor boasts an old and charming paved area with cobblestones. It might remind you of New Orleans with its ornate iron grillwork and graceful colonial buildings. Trinidad may be the only World Heritage Site where you will find a nightclub in a cave that once housed a hospital and a lively bar in an 18th century church!
- Little Cayman, Cayman Islands
Christopher Columbus discovered Little Cayman in 1503. He named it and departed, little knowing what wonders lay beneath the island's shores. Bloody Bay is one of the world's premier diving experiences with 1000 feet of nearly vertical cliff wall descending to the ocean floor. It was first explored and made famous by Jacques Cousteau, but today even novice divers can marvel at the amazing variety of fish, corals and other marine life that make their homes in nooks, crannies and cavities at every depth on the wall. If you prefer your sightseeing above, a pond on Little Cayman holds a huge rookery of red-footed boobies - probably the largest in the world.
- George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
This once unknown small Caribbean island is now the centre of once of the world's largest banking economies, the home of uncounted billions in offshore assets. Tax-free, duty-free and largely restriction-free, Grand Cayman is a magnet for money. Shopping is a full-time occupation here. However, there is another side to Grand Cayman, where endless beaches, quiet lagoons and laid-back beach bars beckon. Grand Cayman was the first island to offer close encounters with tame sting-rays, and it is also the home of the famous Atlantis submarine tour.
- Cayo Blanco
Every once in a while Star Clippers find an idyllic private island that offers everything a beach lover could possibly want. Cayo Blanco, located just off the southern coast of Cuba near Trinidad, is just such a paradise. Here you will spend a blissful day sunbathing, snorkelling and swimming. You won't want to leave!
- Cayo Largo
Cayo Largo recalls the Caribbean that used to be, containing 28km of beach and only 3km wide. The 2nd largest island of the Canarreos Archipelago is a marine wildlife sanctuary for many species. You'll find turtle kraals where palm-sized hatchlings are raised to adult size and released to the sea, visit an island where iguanas roam freely and then bask in a natural swimming pool of the ocean, surrounded by dunes of flour-fine sand.
- Arch. De Los Canarreos
This chain of islands stretches 100 miles westward from the Gulf of Batabano on Cuba's South Coast, and has 350 islands in the group. Ranging from unnamed sand specks to 850-square-mile Isla de la Juventud, they are an undeveloped paradise-in-waiting for divers and beachcombers. Star Clippers is the only cruise line to visit some of the most enticing fishing villages and harbours in this unexplored archipelago.
- Punta Francis’ beach - Isla de la Juventud
Oddly enough, there are both black sand and white sand beaches on Isla de la Juventud (once named Isle of Pines, because of the lumber that is harvested here). Punta Francis’ beach is the most famous, especially for diving and snorkelling. Isla de la Juventud was at one time a favourite haven for pirates and adventurers - Francis Drake, John Hawkins and Henry Morgan found refuge on these shores - prompting Robert Louis Stevenson to base his Treasure Island here. There are fascinating caves containing over 200 ancient Indian pictographs. You can also visit the skeletal remains of a huge 3-domed, semi-circular prison, now abandoned, where Fidel Castro was held before the revolution.
Havana is the capital city of Cuba and with 2.1 million inhabitants. It's fascinating history is evident as you explore the streets. Soak up the charming atmosphere as you sit in one of it's cool cafes or bars. It's a city rich in art and music.
- Cayo Rico
This tiny islet is peaceful and isolated with more iguanas than tourists. Splash around in the crystal clear waters and bask upon powdery white beaches. Make sure you bring your snorkel gear in order to appreciate the spectacular marine life.
