Celestyal Cruises is adding Punta Frances to its Cuba program for the upcoming 2016-2017 Caribbean season, according to a statement.

The cruise line said the port was "chosen for its authentic vibe, impeccable coastlines, and crystalline waters shimmering in virtually every shade of blue."

Punta Frances will replace Maria La Gorda on Celestyal Cruises’ all-inclusive seven-day Cuba itinerary.

Located on the Isla de la Juventud (Isle of Youth), Punta Francés features nearly two miles of sugary white sand beaches.

The revised itinerary offers travelers opportunities to enjoy both on-board and on-shore the unique immersion in Cuban natural beauty and deep-dive into an authentic Cuban experience which only Celestyal Cruises can provide.
The updated seven-day, all-inclusive Celestyal Cruises Cuba cruise itinerary to be performed starting in November 2016, through the end of 2017 offers embarkation in either Havana, Cuba or Montego Bay, Jamaica and is scheduled weekly as follows:
