PORT:                                    Montego Bay, Jamacia

CRUISE LINE:                      Celestyal Cruises

Join us as we take another trip to the beautiful island of Cuba.  Twenty-first century Cuba promises to be like nowhere else you’ve ever visited.  This beautiful island nation is economically poor, but culturally rich; and visibly aged, yet architecturally magnificent.  Here in a country of few material possessions, Cuba continues to amaze travelers from around the globe with its beaches, bays and mountains, and its world-class rum, exuberant music and art.

The Celestyal Cruise itinerary is designed to immerse you in learning about Cuba both on and off the ship.  Educational opportunities are scheduled throughout the cruise to allow you to learn about the culture, dance, music, art, food and drink of the people of Cuba.  Each night the chef creates a special Cuban dish to choose from for dinner.
