It was an opportunity to travel to Cuba, which hasn't been readily available and may not be in the future, who knows! Traveled with my husband, my mother, and my sister. We stayed in Key Biscayne for 3 days prior to the cruise, and got to the ship terminal 2 hours prior to our 3:00 pm embarkation time. But very few people were there, and we breezed through. We were given our room key and our luggage was there when we arrived. Disembarkation was equally as smooth.

Our overnight trip to Havana was marred by the tornado, so we didn't see the Tropicana show. But friends of ours were there the previous night, and said it was fantastic. The Melia Hotel was quite nice (we were expecting worse). And the CARS!!!!

The tour guides were very knowledgeable.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe verandah

Always very clean. Large closet space, and the immediate offer of additional hangars if necessary. Excellent storage space. The heated floors in the bathroom were too warm.

Port Reviews


Downtown is too far to walk from the ship.

Santiago de Cuba

You can walk to downtown from the ship. You'll need a taxi to get to the cemetary
