unnamed (9)Now wrapping up its second consecutive season, Cuba Cruise is pleased to announce new details about its highly anticipated return to the island next winter. The trailblazing company launches a brand new cruise itinerary for its 2015/2016 season, including two full days in Cuba’s vibrant capital city and a new port of call in idyllic, palm-fringed Maria la Gorda. Travellers can join the cruise in Montego Bay, Jamaica or Havana, Cuba every week from December 18th, 2015 to March 21st, 2016. Bookings are now open and rates start at $849 CAD (taxes and port fees included).

“From when we first launched in 2013 to this year’s US/Cuba announcement, it has been one incredible journey for our guests, crew, staff and partners,” says Dugald Wells, Cuba Cruise President. “We look forward to another successful and exhilarating season in Cuba, visiting new destinations and returning to guest favourites like Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba.”

New Cruise Itinerary

The 2015/2016 cruise program begins in Cuba’s crown jewel, Havana, and then travels southeast visiting an additional four ports of call: Maria la Gorda, Cienfuegos, Montego Bay (Jamaica), and Santiago de Cuba. Guests can also travel in the opposite direction, embarking from Montego Bay. Cuba Cruise invites travelers to create their own adventure through choosing a variety of activities from bird watching to snorkelling, rainforest hiking, and cigar factory tours. Guests have the option to explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like colourful Trinidad and colonial Cienfuegos, relax on world-famous beaches like Negril (Jamaica), scuba dive off the Guanacahabibes peninsula, one of the most protected areas in Cuba, dance to iconic Trova music in the Oriente province and more.

Americans Traveling to Cuba

New this year, Americans can now legally book their Cuba Cruise directly on the website, through a U.S. travel agent or on the phone. The exclusive People-to-People cruise program is offered in partnership with the U.S. non-profit organization Fund for Reconciliation and Development (FFRD), which authorizes legal travel to Cuba under the new general licence introduced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

Participants in the people-to-people program will spend their Caribbean days visiting and interacting with Cuban people and learning about Cuban culture and history first-hand, both onboard and ashore. The cost of registration is $75 USD, plus the cruise rate. For more information about Americans traveling to Cuba, visit yourcubacruise.com/USTravelCuba.aspx
