Newly launched Cuba Cruise has announced a schedule of cruises that will begin next December. The cruise line plans 15 departures next winter, circumnavigating Cuba and making the island’s fascinating but hard to reach ports accessible and affordable for all. Each cruise includes the opportunity to visit world famous beaches, six UNESCO world heritage sites and four National Parks & Preserves, as well as in-depth exploration of Cuba’s dynamic culture.
Cuba Cruise’s 480 stateroom, 25,611 tonne ship Louis Cristal (sailing under the Greek flag) will circumnavigate Cuba with cruises departing from Havana. There will also be cruises departing from Montego Bay in Jamaica. The 7-night cruise will call at six unique ports, offering opportunities to visit Cuba’s fabled colonial cities and several of Cuba’s perfect beaches.
Starting at CD$586 double occupancy for a seven-night cruise, each cruise will feature the company’s signatures of impeccable service and delicious meals served onboard. All dining aboard Cuba Cruise will feature quality imported Canadian produce, beef and other food products (most notable in the a la carte Alberta Steakhouse,) and specialty Cuban dishes. Cruises will feature an entertainment program of Cuban music and dance by local Cuban performers, along with very North American content including satellite broadcasts of hockey and football games in the Canada Sports Bar.
The Louis Cristal is a modern cruise ship with a unique yacht-like modern design and a cruising speed of 18 knots. It features an array of amenities with all the comforts expected of today’s contemporary vessels, including spacious staterooms and suites (some with balconies, and each one equipped with shower, WC, wash basin, telephone, hairdryer & TV), elegant lounges and restaurants, casino and open promenades. The ship also features modern communication facilities including an internet corner, WiFi and roaming GSM mobile phone service.
The company anticipates that easily accessible air, land and sea packages will soon be available through major Canadian air charter tour operators, with flights departing from all principal Canadian gateways.
