Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Club Oceanview Stateroom

Azamara offers the best itinerary to Cuba with three full days in Havana, one in Cienfuegos and a night and day in Santiago de Cuba. For a first visit, I felt that I learned quite a bit about this island nation.

It has been eight years since I last cruised Azamara and I quickly remembered why I loved the two previous cruises: the ship's size, the wonderful crew and well-travelled passengers.

Food was good in all venues (I did not eat in Aqualina nor Prime C). Bottled water is always available and provided when exiting at each port; the included drinks (wine and spirits) were of sufficient quality for me although the base beer selection was not good.

Thank you JHU for the five-star review! We are so glad you've come back to Azamara after an 8-year absence. We hope to see more of you in the future!...

Cabin Review

Club Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin 05

Storage was good; bed was very comfortable; good size window. This was one cabin in from the guest relations area and was very quiet. Well located to one of the elevator banks. I would book this cabin again (starboard side).

Port Reviews


The trip to Trinidad was 1.5 hours from the port town of Cienfuegos. The ride was very pleasant and I was surprised to see how mountainous Cuba is. Trinidad is not a touristy town and was very interesting to see life in a not big city. Visited an artiest's house, a pottery (nice goods). Walking the streets was difficult because the stones were very irregular. In Havana, the cobble stones (ship ballast) were very regular and easy to walk on. Had buffet lunch in the country with a small band playing.

Key West

We docked at the military base and were provided a shuttle into town. This was well run and convenient. I took the trolley tour independently of the ship.


Stayed two nights in an older airport hotel and purchased a one-way shuttle to the pier.
