Emblazoned with Cuba Cruise’s signature flowers, the Louis Cristal has set sail towards the Caribbean after a drydocking in Greece.

The ship departed the Greek port on November 24th, 2013 for its cross-Atlantic sailing, stopping in the Canary Islands and Barbados before it begins its inaugural season in Cuba. Cuba Cruise’s 7-night circumnavigation sailing launches December 16th, 2013 through to March 24th, 2014 and provides passengers with an up-close and in-depth experience of the incredible island and its dynamic culture.

“The coordination involved in chartering a ship from Europe to Cuba is an impressive feat,” said Dugald Wells, Cuba Cruise President. “We’re fortunate to work with highly skilled and experienced international teams throughout this unique launch.”
 
 The 7-night cruise around Caribbean’s largest island departs from either Havana or Montego Bay with a lead-in price of only $586 CAD. Cuba Cruise features Canadian imported cuisine as well as local specialties, and explores diverse ports including Santiago, Cienfuegos and Punta Frances on the Isle of Youth.
