We liked this cruise because it was a totally Cuban cruise, in spite of the fact that it spent one day in Montego Bay to refuel and load supplies. Most of the other cruises we saw were Caribbean cruised that only spent one day visiting Havana. In addition, Crystal is a smaller ship which is great for embarking and disembarking. Our cabin was small but clean and our attendants kept the cabin very clean and were great offering to change our towels various times during the day.The food was good and the entertainment fantastic, among the best compared with Seabourn, Silverseas and Windstar. But what we mainly liked was the great service we received on board from the crew and especially from the Cuban members of the crew and entertainment staff that put on fabulous shows and also gave us great tips for onshore visits. The excursions were good and informative about the Cuban people, their music and arts but nothing exciting. Overall i would rate the ship and the service almost on a par with Seabourn, Silverseas and Windstar but for the cost-value it was definitely a 5 star.
Small cabin but very clean and great attendants always ready to offer help and services.
Great older spanish colonial buildings, some dilipidated but great bones and wonderful restaurants and bars.View All 251 City Tour Reviews

Very focused on the 1959 revolution, civil war, nothing about the revolution with Spain. Also, very politically oriented.View All 7 Museo de la Revolucion Reviews

Only took a private tour with a taxi driving around town and the neighborhoods. Very busy city, nothing exciting or of historical significance.
Visited some artists and a school with a musical program. The city has a busy downtown with an interesting plaza and live performance theatre that is a bit run down.View All 40 City Tour Reviews
