I chose this Cuba cruise because my husband wanted to go to Cuba and I wanted to go on a cruise. First time for both of us. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience.

The ship is an older, smaller ship but very clean and well staffed. The pool and hot tub were tiny (only 1). But I didn't really go on this trip for swimming.

The crew were amazing!! The waiters/bar staff were excellent. This trip included tips but the service was so good that they deserved extra tips!

Cabin Review

Cabin deck 4

The cab was cozy enough for us. The only problem we have is the size of the bathroom was so tiny. The shower area had a curtain that did not prevent the water from going out from underneath onto the floor. We had to place a towel on the floor each time after a shower.

Port Reviews


Beautiful tour of Cienfuegos. Stopped at a yacht club (don't remember the name). Such lovely views! We could see our Celestyal ship off in the distance. We were entertained by a band playing great Cuban music. Wanted to buy their CD but they were sold out!
