Cuba

Romantically decadent and upbeat

The vibrant and colourful Caribbean island nation of Cuba has a rich artistic heritage and many of the best beaches in the world. The communist run country is famous for its fine sugar-white shoreline, Spanish-colonial architecture, cheerful but quaintly timeworn pastel coloured houses and showy vintage 1950s-era cars. Cuba’s traditional upbeat hot salsa music is the perfect soundtrack to the picturesque sights that greet you on an unforgettable cruise travel adventure.

The capital city Havana is steeped in 16th century history, pre-Columbian culture and the influence of Spanish colonialism. Admire the pretty pastel hue houses that line the city’s streets, and the classic cars that drive by. The atmosphere of nostalgia is what creates a unique and enduring holiday experience in this appealing cruise destination.

Cuba’s majestic mountain ranges, lush rainforests, and spectacular waterfalls are harmonious balanced by the stunning sun bleached white sandy beaches that stretch for miles along the coastline. The fertile countryside is dotted with sugar cane plains and tobacco fields that still play a major part in the production of the country’s legendary hand-rolled cigars. The island’s natural beauty and charm is undeniable. Cruise Cuba to experience the romantic decadence of yesteryear, and to gaze in awe at the wonderful sights.
