This is not itinerary idling. This is delving deep into shores that few have explored on the most adventurous cruise ship sailing Cuba — Empress of the Seas℠. Let a local give you an insider’s perspective on a classic car Havana’s historic Malecón. Go cobblestone road rambling and Afro-Cuban beat bumping in Santiago de Cuba, where some of the islands’ most influential musicians got their start. And get your eco-tour on in Cienfuegos to discover why they call it the “Pearl of the South.” All while immersing yourself in the Cuban culture onboard, like special entertainment, cuisine and guest lectures. No other major cruise line shows you Cuba like this.
The capital of Cuba, Havana is a fascinating old town and has been the star of many novels, movies and songs. It is rich in history and culture and holds a special fascination for many Westerners. Its history is visible everywhere – from magnificent old squares such as San Francisco de Asis and famous promenade Malecón, to the old forts such as the Castillo de la Real Fuerza or Morro Castle. Please be aware of travel restrictions to Cuba for U.S. citizens.
