Cruise Industry News (CIN) can reveal Louis Group and Louis Cruises will deploy the 1,452-passenger Cristal to Cuba for the winter 2013/2014 season on a charter arrangement with Toronto-based Cuba Cruise.
In an interview with CIN, Pythagoras Nagos, commercial director of Louis Cruises, confirmed 15 Cuba cruises for the 2013/2014 season.
“They are Cuba-centric cruises, also calling in Jamaica,” he said. “The season will run from December 16, 2013 to March 31, 2014. Cuba Cruise is breaking ground with its circumnavigation of Cuba, making the island’s fascinating but otherwise hard to reach ports accessible and affordable for all.”
Louis Cruises will be providing full vessel management services, including the delivery of the onboard product.
Louis will also be promoting and selling the Cuba Cruise product through its distribution network.
