This city of 2 million people is one of the great historical cities of the New World. A throwback in time, it displays a combination of colonialism, capitalism, and Communism blended into one.
We sail out of the harbour and past the magnificent colonial era forts that guard the entrance.
After boarding the vessel and checking into our cabins, we make our way to the outer deck for a welcome briefing and cocktail party with Mojitos, and Cuba Libres. Here you will meet our team of guides, lecturers, and shipboard staff, who will provide you with an overview of the week ahead and explain how things work onboard the ship.
Our meal tonight is our welcome dinner, showcasing a variety of traditional Cuban food. Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African and Caribbean recipes, and the result is a unique and flavourful blend of several cultural influences. We have gone to great lengths to deliver an incredible onboard food experience while you travel Cuba, and tonight will be no exception. Dine with fellow passengers, before retiring to the upper deck to wave good-bye as we set sail from the port of Havana.
