Day 2-3: Havana, Cuba

We’ll spend two days in the beautiful capital of Cuba! Old Havana is a UNESCO World Heritage site, home to five plazas with fantastic architecture, including churches, castles, palaces and monuments. The old city had to be well fortified against pirates, including the Castillo de la Real Fuerza which was built in 1558. You can also visit the Catedral de San Cristobal and the Great Theater of Havana – home to the National Ballet of Cuba.

Day 4: Day of Cruising

Enjoy the views and the onboard amenities while we cruise to our next destination.

Day 5: Cienfuegos, Cuba

‘La Perla del Sur’ is one of Cuba’s main ports, exporting sugar, coffee and tobacco. It was here that King Philip V of Spain built the Castillo de Jaqua – a limestone fortress – to protect against pirates in 1742. Learn about the flora of the region at the Jardin Botanico de Cienfuegos.

Day 6: Trinidad, Cuba

Between the Escambray Mountain Range and the Caribbean Sea lies the little town of Trinidad. The town is lined with cobbled streets, iron railings, art studios, and more. Founded in 1514, Trinidad represents the old world beautifully.

Day 7: Casilda, Cuba

Casilda lies in the shrimp zone, making it a high-quality port known for seafood. Walk the waterfront, home to artisan shops with great views of Casilda’s beautiful beaches. Take the ‘Trinidad to Cumanayagua Loop’ to view the Caribbean Sea from an elevated vista.

Day 8: Day of Cruising

Wave as you cruise by the small coastal towns and white sandy beaches of the southern coast.

Day 9: El Cobre, Santiago, Cuba

El Sanctuario de Nuestra Senora de la Caridad del Cobre is a triple dome church built in 1927. In the foothills of a 14th century copper mine, this church is the most important pilgrimage site on the island, inviting pilgrims to pay their respect to the Virgen de la Caridad (Virgin of Charity). The statue is believed to protect the people of Cuba, and was blessed in 1998 by the Pope.

Day 10: Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city in Cuba (after Havana). Unlike other regions of Cuba, Santiago is a fantastic diversity of Caribbean cultures! You’ll see the influence of Jamaica and other Caribbean island people in Santiago’s art, music, cuisine and architecture.

Day 11: Day of Cruising

We’ll reflect on our amazing journey as we cross the waters back to America.
