Great itinerary and cozy ship

We chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary, which included 2 nights spent in Havanna, Cuba. We loved the route (Havanna-Montego Bay-Cayman Islands-Cozumel) and found MSC Armonia to be a cozy ship. Sure, ...

Hubby's first cruise - and he's sold.

We chose this cruise because of the Havana connection and the great price. The first thing I would like to say is that the cruise staff need to know that not all Canadians speak French. When we first arrived, ...

Ignore the Complainers!

We chose this cruise because we wanted to experience more of Havana - and we got two full days in the amazing city of Havana! The ship is in port right in Old Havana so it was super easy to get to town and back to ...

The ship is a great way to see a few areas in Cuba.

We just returned yesterday, having flown in to Havana and out of Havana (from Miami from/to Dallas). Rather than go in to Montego Bay (not a huge fan of Jamaica, and have been there a few times) and get on the ...

All inclusive Cuba cruise

The cruise was part of an all inclusive package from TripCentral. Most Canadians go to Cuba for the beach and then maybe fly to Havana. The Celestyal cruise offered an opportunity to see more of Cuba, from Havana to ...

July 2017 Cruise

We were pleasantly surprised about how good the food was on board, and how lovely the staff were, both in the dining room and the cabin stewards. We went on this cruise because we had never been to Cuba and we both ...

Very nice if you want to go on a cruise, not a great way to see Cuba.

We choose the cruise because it was essentially the only way we could see Cuba in a family group. That said, we got to see much less of Cuba and much more of the cruise than we hoped. This was through no fault of ...

We chose this cruise because bus trips aren't my thing. We also wanted to see Cuba before the American economic invasion. The ship can hold 49 people but we were only 13 passengers - ideal! Since there were so few ...
