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

pre-revolutionary 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

Take this rare opportunity to visit Havana and marvel at this country in a time warp where time seems to have stood

still in the 1950's. MSC seem to have cornered the market in finding itineraries that are a little different to the norm -

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

such as Montego Bay and Grand Cayman with the Latin charm and unspoilt lush scenery of Central American ports such as

the Belize Barrier Reef and Mahogany Bay.
