There are no words to describe. This was our second visit to Havana and plan to return. The best is getting off the ship, walk across the street to a beautiful plaza and have no bars with loud music and t-shirt shops selling junk. One can only hope that Havana does not end up like other cruise ports that believe bars and shops are the main attraction. People are friendly, food is good, music is awesome. The City is surprisingly clean though lots of construction and rehab going on due to next year they will be celebrating the 500 year anniversary. We have always felt safe in Havana and, as any city anywhere in the world, be aware of what is around you and avoid dark alleys at night. We walked all over this time and enjoyed the vibrancy of this City. Read Less

The 2 days we spent in port gave us ample opportunity to learn about Cuban history & culture. We booked a private tour with Blexie-Havana Tours and were not disappointed. Our tour guide, Rollie, was a young college graduate who spoke impeccable English and answered our questions thoughtfully and honestly. On our 6 hour walking/driving tour, we learned about the history & social conditions - past & present. We also saw 2 artistic enclaves, Fusterlandia and Muraleando, started by individual artists who wanted to uplift and enhance their communities. We were impressed by the creative spirit of the Cuban people who welcomed us into their community. Read Less

Worst tour ever ... see above. We should have at least been refunded the cost of the tour. The entire ship was buzzing with how terrible this tour was.

Read review.... or should I say I can't review Havana because we didn't have time in the city to enjoy. Dark, late and stores closed. No gifts purchased or cigars

We toured Havana in a 1955 Chevy Belair convertible. We had the driver and a tour guide for a third of what the ship wanted to charge. The tour was terrific.

Just got back from the worst vacation experience I have ever had, hands down, on the Norwegian Sky. I booked this a few months ago specifically because it offered an all day and overnight in Havana, as well as a day in Stirrup Cay and in Nassau. The first day, we got an announcement that stirrup cay was cancelled due to "9 foot waves" (the sea was still and calm) We arrived in Nassau but much later than predicted so we had a short evening and the ship left at 2 PM the next day so barely any time.....After that disappointment, we got another announcement.....our disembarkment in Havana was going to be delayed from 12 PM to 4:30. We had an excursion that was canceled by the cruise, and it kicked us to the back of the line to disembark. We asked if we could AT LEAST have another excursion at the same cost or keep our place in line. Both were denied by a very snippy staff member. We didn't end up disembarking until around 6:30, and then the customs line lasted about an hour, putting us in Havana at 7:30! When we did finally get off the ship, the captain announced that "the rest of us could go now," and there was no staff to direct us off the ship so we had to wander around to find where to go. Speaking of snippy staff members, there were a lot of them. The front desk people were rude from day one, and the people at the front desk at Crossings had a terrible attitude. The ship smelled like dirty feet, the food was terrible, the entertainment options very scarce, and I regret booking with you guys. I will surely never book with your line again, and I will deter as many people as I can from booking. I was not offered any kind of compensation except for 25% off my next cruise (laughable that the line would think I would want to book again after my terrible experience). I will continue to post this on every review website I can find. My lifelong dream to experience Cuba has been ruined, and I'm going to have to go back there on my own to even feel like I experienced it. Read Less

Nice 2 hour overview of Havana and the key historic sites. Good way to get to see all the city on a short time schedule.

You should really do excursions with the cruise line if you want to see the really good parts of Cuba. Walking on your own was okay but very hard to navigate. You will spend 200 and better on their excursions.
