Pearl Mist at sea

Pearl Seas Cruises will run four Cuba cruises in November and December of this year and a full schedule is planned for 2018. Starting this fall, the cruise line will begin offering an 11-night Cuba cruise with an additional stop in Casilda, according to a press release.

The new port will offer more opportunities for cultural exchange with the Cuban people. Pearl Seas is one of only a few cruise lines approved by the United States and Cuban governments to sail to Cuba.

The company said it offers “the most immersive Cuban itinerary with a circumnavigation of the island, including stops in Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, El Cobre, and Santiago de Cuba.”

“The small ship makes for a very personalized and all-inclusive experience of Cuba,” said Timothy Beebe, vice president of Pearl Seas Cruises. “Our local experts on this people-to-people exchange guide each exploration and allow guests the opportunity to experience Cuban culture firsthand.”

Cruises aboard the Pearl Mist will leave Fort Lauderdale on November 10, 20, 30, and December 12.
