It isn’t long since Oceania Cruises made history. Earlier this month, it became the first major North American brand to travel to the vibrant, Caribbean island nation of Cuba. And now, it has launched a further ten sailings.
Since the US’s embargo on Cuba was lifted last year, more and more travellers are fulfilling their dream of visiting this exciting country. Oceania promises to help them do it in style, with a round-trip on-board luxury cruise ships from the art deco paradise of Miami.
Luxury cruise holidays fuelled by culture
A Cuba cruise is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the country’s revolutionary past and intoxicating present. It is an assault on the senses: kaleidoscopic colours, unmissable sights and layer upon layer of culture waiting to meet you at every turn.
The Oceania cruise itineraries range from seven to 10 days, and take in some of Cuba’s bucket list sights. Follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway during a stop in Havana – there is nothing like a drink in one of the writer’s two favourite watering holes: La Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio. Then there are the legendary cities of Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba: all sparkling blue seas and colonial architecture.
The one sight you absolutely cannot miss is Cuba’s fleet of classic cars. Owing to a ban on car imports under Fidel Castro, the country’s streets act as your very own car museum, brimming with beautiful (and often rare) 1950s vehicles.
Visit Cuba on-board the Oceania Sirena
Oceania’s ten new luxury cruise holidays will complement the six already planned on-board Oceania Insignia, taking place on the Oceania Sirena during the autumn of 2018. This luxurious ship is the perfect vessel for exploring such a beautiful nation.
Catering to just 684 guests, this intimate ship offers a cruise in the slow lane. Gourmet restaurants will offer a range of authentic Cuban cuisines, while experts will deliver fascinating lectures on Cuban history, art and music, helping you to get the most out of your trip of a lifetime.
