Azamara Club Cruises Announces Additional Cuba Voyages

Posted May 8th, 2017

Azamara Club Cruises has just added four additional sailings to its exciting line up of Cuba voyages. Departing from Miami, the sailings onboard the recently revitalised Azamara Quest feature overnights in Havana, as well as visits to two maiden ports of call – Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. As the cruise brand that pioneered truly immersive destination experiences, Azamara is offering more opportunities for guests to travel deeper into Cuba.

Azamara has created a variety of unique people-to-people shore excursions in Cuba. Travellers can enjoy the destination from sunup to sundown – exploring historic sites by day, followed by mojitos and sultry Cuban music in the evening. Multiple overnight stays also allow guests the opportunity to experience the destination at night when the cobblestone streets are filled with music from salsa clubs, the scent of hand rolled Cuban cigars, and delicious local cuisine.

Shore Excursion offerings feature a variety of experiences including a visit to the open air cabaret, Tropicana, a Nelson Dominguez art gallery tour, Havana by classic car along the Malecón waterfront and Hemingway’s Havana, with more experiences coming soon. All tour programs offered by Azamara are designed to meet U.S. requirements for travel to Cuba.

Two New Cuban Ports of Call

Beginning January 2018, Azamara guests will have the opportunity to explore new destinations within Cuba including two new ports of call.

  • Cienfuegos:  Known as La Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South), Cienfuegos sits on the south-central coast of Cuba. Cienfuegos translates to "100 fires” and the town adds a bright light to this fascinating country.
  • Santiago de Cuba: Perched on the Caribbean Sea southeast of the capital of Havana is Santiago de Cuba. The soul of Cuba’s second largest city is bustling, diverse and bursting at the seams with fascinating history and cultural life.
