Cuba Cruise’s inaugural season wraps up

Cuba Cruise’s inaugural season wraps up

The M/V Louis Cristal docked Monday morning in Havana, capping off the last sailing of Cuba Cruise’s 2013/2014 maiden season. For the past 15 weeks, Cuba Cruise has delighted and surprised international travellers with the wonder and beauty of the Caribbean’s most eclectic island. As the inaugural season comes to a close, the Canadian company enthusiastically prepares for its second run, from December 22nd, 2014 to March 30th, 2015.

“What an incredible year! We couldn’t be happier with our premier season in Cuba,” says Dugald Wells, Cuba Cruise President, who joined fellow passengers aboard this season’s final cruise. “The response is enormously positive and our team is excited to open the phones this month and share Cuba’s majestic scenes and culture with new and second-time travellers in 2014/2015.”

Onboard and back home, veteran cruisers, vacationing families, snowbirds, sun seeking honeymooners and party-going friends weren’t shy to speak up about their enjoyable weeklong escape to the white-sand beaches of Punta Frances and Montego Bay, charming Cuban countryside and the island’s fabled colonial towns.

Positive reviews and testimonials have lit up international travel websites and blogs, such as Cruise Report, Cruise Critic, and TripAdvisor, and across social media channels, like Facebook and Twitter.
