Seven-night Cuba cruise at extremely good price

July 9, 2013 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Cuba, island of Castro, aromatic cigars and vintage Cadillacs, is a perfect country to visit by ship.

A week gives time to sail right around the island, stopping along the way to visit Cuba’s most famous places and other Cuban sites less known but no less interesting.

The American trade embargo on Cuba makes it virtually impossible to sail to Cuba directly from the USA, but another way has come up – a seven-night round-trip cruise around Cuba from Montego Bay, Jamaica.

In the Australian market, Small Ship Cruises (smallshipcruises.com.au) is selling seven-night Cuba CC-kids-trinidadcruises aboard the ship Louis Cristal.

The Cuba cruise sailings are available on various dates from 20 December 2013 to 21 March 2014. They are priced in Canadian dollars and cost from CAD 746 twin share per person, which is the equivalent of about $A769 – a remarkably cheap price for a seven-night cruise.

Louis Cristal is known for its yacht-like modern design. The ship provides elegant lounges and restaurants, disco, casino, internet corner and open promenades.

The cruise includes all meals aboard ship, daily entertainment program, evening entertainment and theme nights.

Highlight visits of your seven-night Cuban cruise aboard Louis Cristal:

Montego Bay, Jamaica: Jamaica’s tourism capital and second-largest city.

Cienfuegos, Cuba: View the Castillo de Jagua, a fortress built in 1745 for protection against the pirates of the Caribbean – long before Johnny Depp.

Trinidad, Cuba: In the province of Sancti Spiritus, central Cuba, this town with its cobblestone streets, together with the nearby Valle de los Ingenios, has been one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites since 1988.

Punta Frances on the Isle of Youth, Cuba: Pine forests, orange blossoms and warm ocean breezes. A glorious beach of pure white sand surrounded by crystal clear warm waters – perfect for snorkelling.

Havana, Cuba: A whole day to explore one of the great historical cities of the New World, a melting pot of art, music, distinctive architecture, Spanish colonialism, Latin capitalism and rare modern communism. Departure at midnight.

Cayo Coco, Cuba. A stunning island perfect for a day of activity, sun, sand and exploration of lagoons and their wildlife.

Holguin, Cuba. Perhaps explore the isolated La Mensura National Park, hike the UNESCO biosphere of Cuchillas de Toa, or Guayabo waterfalls plunging 200 metres.

Santiago De Cuba. Capital of the Spanish colony of Cuba until 1589, Santiago is Cuba’s most important city outside Havana and famous for its music. As well as music, the cigar is a deep-rooted tradition in Santiago, as is the production of rum.

Louis Cristal then sails back to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
