Cruise to Cuba aboard the Viking Star

I am not typically a cruiser, but chose this cruise because it was going to Cuba and only Cuba. Other cruise lines would stop in Cuba, but would go to other destinations. We were supposed to dock in Cienfuegos ...

We booked this cruise last minute via Sunwing Vacations in Canada, primarily for the itinerary - especially the 2 day stop in Havana Cuba. As well, the very good price for the cruise included flight, taxes, ...

Save your money ~ don't sail with MSC.

We are one of the people who were affected by the travel ban to Cuba. We had booked a 7 day cruise with MSC for ONLY the reason that they offered a 2-day stop in Cuba. Of course, it wasn't their fault that travel ...
