CUBA

After a thaw in relations between Cuba and the USA - this

charming Caribbean island nation is undergoing negotiations

to end the embargo the USA have imposed on this country. For

decades Cuba has been excluded from any commerce with the

USA and any cruise itineraries departing from US ports- hence

the reason why time has stood still. It goes without saying that

when the embargo is finally lifted Cuba will be swamped by

tourist, ships and development which will have an impact on its

current under-developed charm of yesteryear.

From the comfort of a modern cruise ship - enjoy all

Havana and Cuba have to offer. Admire the Spanish colonial

architecture of 16th-century Old Havana core, including the

maritime museum in Castillo de la Real fort and the prerevolutionary

Capitolio. 1950's American-made classic cars line

the city's streets and rumba groups play in the painted alley

Callejón de Hamel. Salsa emanates from clubs, cabaret is still

performed at the famed Tropicana and the heady smell of the

world famous Cuban cigars hangs in the air.

Isla De La Juventud - translated as the Isle of Youth - is

the second-largest Cuban island and the seventh-largest

island in the West Indies.. It served for centuries as a base

for pirates with buried treasure regularly found around the

island. This sleepy, laid-back place has amazing un-crowded

white sand beaches and gives the chance to get off the

beaten track - appealing to escape artists, adventurers and

committed contrarians.

ITINERARY

two nights on board in port using the ship as your hotel in the

still in the 1950's. Following the success of their winter 2016/17 programme of Caribbean cruises from Havana on Board

MSC Armonia; MSC Cruises are continuing these sell-out cruises on the sister ship - MSC Opera throughout the summer

them highly sought after by novice and seasoned cruisers alike. Contrast the popular ports of West Caribbean such as
