Calgary, Canada (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Newly-launched Cuba Cruise breaks new ground with their Cuba circumnavigation itineraries, making the island’s fascinating but otherwise hard to reach ports more accessible and affordable than ever. Each cruise, aboard the Louis Cristal, includes visits to world famous cities and off-the-beaten path towns, UNESCO world heritage sites and national parks, as well as in-depth exploration of Cuba’s dynamic culture. The experience offers the best qualities of cruising and inclusive getaways combined with a Cuba that few American travelers have seen.
Cuba Cruise will dramatically increase the otherwise limited supply of Cuba travel options for American travelers in the years to come. The upcoming season will run sailings from December 16, 2013 to March 24, 2014.
“We’re excited to offer the travel market something truly unique,” said Cuba Cruise President Dugald Wells. “We provide the best of both worlds to our guests – a top-notch cruise experience and the type of in-the-know exploration of Cuba’s remarkable sights, sounds, flavors and history that is usually reserved for locals only.”
US not-for-profit travel organization Road Scholar joins Cuba Cruise to offer Americans this completely unique voyage. With Road Scholar, guests participate in a land and ship-based education exchange program, absorbing the energy of Havana, interacting with local Cubans and discovering the remote parts of the island that are difficult to access by land. Travelers with Road Scholar will experience 5-nights onboard the Louis Cristal ship. The company expects the special program to fill very quickly, so seize the moment and enroll today.
