Upon our return from Finca Vigia, enjoy some free time before we make our way to Café El Mercurio for dinner, and then to the Café Taberna to experience the wonderful salsa music, performed in a similar style as that of the Buena Vista Social Club.

This itinerary may be subject to change as a result of weather and other factors not in our control. Our vessels have been granted the longest stays of any cruise boats in the port of Havana. Since space at the dock itself is severely limited, this itinerary might involve a combination of having to tender in to shore, as well as docking at one of only two piers. Sailing direction and activities in this itinerary should be considered a sample only. Final itineraries are sent to guests one to two weeks prior to departure.

Cruise Cuba

The ship operator requires that passengers arrive on a group charter flight to ensure smooth airport transfers, ship boarding, or join the land based portion of the tour. Guests that book a cruise automatically have a seat on a reserved charter flight confirmed for them from Miami-Havana-Cienfuegos-Miami or Miami-Cienfuegos-Havana-Miami.  After you book your tour, one of our travel specialists will connect you directly with our flight booking partners who will take care of all of your flight needs. 

Important note: Due to early check-in and flight times from Miami-Havana or Miami-Cienfuegos, we recommend cruise guests book an overnight in Miami near the Miami International Airport.

Flight itineraries with actual flight times will be sent to guests via email approximately 30 days prior to departure.
