Sail roundtrip from Miami on the Norwegian Sky!
Over night in Havana!
The door to Cuba’s soul, Havana captivates with its larger-than-life culture, sultry rhythms and weathered beauty. Take a relaxing stroll along the evocative Malecón, the quintessentially Cuban thoroughfare and get lost among the Baroque facades and colonial cobblestone streets of Old Havana. Enjoy traditional Cuban fare such as moros y cristianos (black beans and rice) and ropa vieja (shredded beef). Visit the grandiose Capitolio Nacional and explore the world-class art collection at Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, which showcases everything from colonial-era paintings to countless masterpieces from Cuba’s famed Vanguard period. Enjoy a friendly game of dominoes with the locals. Sip a daiquiri at Hemingway’s favorite haunt, El Floridita, happen upon a live jazz group and simply savor the eclectic moment in this unique corner of the Americas.
I have personally been to Cuba now three times in four years. I find the culture, architecture, the people and the unbounded energy of the island to be captivating, unlike any other island in the Caribbean. In fact, if you did not know that you were in the Caribbean, you might envision Spanish cites such as Seville, Segovia or Valencia. Cuba is hauntingly beautiful, frozen in time in the 1950’s. You will amazed and overwhelmed by the beauty and pulse of Havana.
I selected this sailing to try to introduce more people to Cuba. The basic land based tours can range from $4500 – $7000 per person. This cruise options allows you to see Havana in it’s natural unspoiled state. It will be years before rates decrease and the best time to visit Cuba is now before the island becomes more “Americanized”. Join me and I will show you the very best of Havana!!
