Everything you need to know before cruising to Cuba.

Featured Ports

Havana (La Habana), Cuba

Cuba’s capital is a sprawling hybrid of diverse architectural styles, historic references, colors, music and excitement. Colonial Old Havana is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

Many famous Cuban writers and musicians come from Santiago. Its Citadel San Pedro de la Roca is the best preserved Spanish colonial fortress and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Cienfuegos, Cuba

One of the later colonial cities of Cuba, Cienfuegos was founded by French nationals in 1819, yet it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its remarkable concentration of 19th century architecture. The Castle of Jagua at the entrance to the bay actually predates the city, erected in 1745 to protect shipping from pirates. An overnight stay allows visits to the city’s highlights, as well as cultural experiences such as classes in Cuban dance and visits to two other UNESCO Heritage sites: the earlier colonial towns of Santa Clara and Trinidad. 

Miami, Florida, US

Miami is the busiest cruise port in the world, hosting a myriad of ships year-round from all over the globe. Although it is technically not on the Caribbean Sea, no other American city exudes more of the diverse tropical appeal of the Caribbean. The city is home to a large and vibrant immigrant population that blends snowbird refugees from more northern climes with emigres from all Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as sizable groups from Europe, the Middle East and Asia. From the hot-blooded Art Deco haunts of South Beach to the natural wonders of the UNESCO-inscribed Everglades and the laid-back charms of the Keys, South Florida offers a bounty of appealing attractions that make an extended stay in the region nearly mandatory for those either embarking or disembarking here. 

Basseterre, St Kitts and Nevis

St. Kitts offers quiet beaches, remnants of the old British plantation culture, and dreamy days under silk-cotton trees, soothed by the scents of flamboyants and frangipani.

St. Johns, Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua is blessed with shining white beaches, and resort hotels counted among the best in the Caribbean. From Shirley Heights, you can see Nelson’s Dockyard across the island.
