Tropicana Cruises will be operating the first around Cuba cruise with weekly sailings with embarkation and disembarkation in Havana and in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
The ship will call at the Isle of Youth and Cienfuegos. An excursion to Trinidad from Cienfuegos will be available for the first sailings, thereafter it is planned to sail to Trinidad directly. The ship will make a day visit to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and then call at Santiago de Cuba, Cayo Saetia and return to its home base of Havana. At each port of call there will be various interesting optional onshore excursions available. The vessel has a comfortable capacity for 280 passengers lending to a more personal service aboard this older traditional cruise liner with over 100 multi-national crew members with all meals and live entertainment included. Other facilities onboard are a swimming pool, bar service, room service, internet wireless service, hairdresser, sauna, massage service, laundry, photographer, boutique and various saloons.
The ship also provides the backdrop for your dream wedding with couples taking their vows either surrounded by family and friends or in a private ceremony just for them. Whether your wedding is large or small, the staff will assist you in finding the perfect onboard location for your special event.
Cuba Select Travel is offering some very attractive discounts for the first sailings.
Lester Felipe Oliva, President of the Cubatur travel agency, said that many European cruise companies are interested in increasing the contacts with Cuba. Future visits of British and Russian cruisers are already planned.
