We had several bus loads of MSC passengers who went to the Tropicana. Our seats were decent and the dancers even came down our aisle and posed with my husband for pictures. There was a bottle of rum to share with 4 people and a can of coke each. Food could also be purchased there. When you enter they tell you there is an additional charge to bring your camera in to take pictures. Some people paid. We didn't and there was no camera police to bother you. The ride to the Tropicana took at least 20-25 minutes through many poorly lit sections of Havana. Even though the excursion cost more than if you went on your own, I felt it was worth the extra expense especially coming home around 1 AM. Read Less

The show was a spectacle not to be missed. The tables are tight and the seating is tight. Most of the Coke was drunk long before the Havana Club Rum was put on the table for Cuba Libres. Additional Coke had to be purchased. Charging 5$ to take pictures seems inane as it was impossible to stop people from using their cell phones and at $149 per ticket it should be free. Read Less

This was our favorite excursion of the trip. It was the only one that was very organized. MSC knows how to do this. The dancers were gorgeous, the music was wonderful. It is held in an outdoor area which is good because they give you a free cigar and many people smoke them. You get rum and a small bottle of coke, ice and some peanuts. If you want to take pictures the Tropicana will charge you 5 CUC per phone and you pay it at the door, they give you a ticket that allows you to take pictures. If you have a larger device to take pictures they charge you 10 CUC. This one is fun, don't miss it! Read Less

Worst use of $200 ever. Flushing it down the toilet would have been more entertaining. Really, take this off your bucket list BEFORE you go. It's dated, boring, all in Spanish, there is no cohesive theme. It was probably great in the fifties when most of the costumes were made, but it is less than thrilling today. Also, every man gets a cigar and you will be sitting in plumes of smoke to top off the evening. Overpriced and super boring. Read Less

An entertaining spectacle! Enchanting with all of the white twinkling lights watching a Vegas style show on stage. Very well done. My only criticism of the show was that the music was 95% Cuban caribbean and it all started to sound the same after a while--and I love Latin music. Like anywhere else--they try to get you to buy drinks buy only bringing the rum included with your package to your table when the entertainment begins. Don't forget to take the rum with you when you go. Read Less

We went to Tropicana Cabaret that we had booked through RC because of our unfounded concern over safety. It was indeed a glitzy show with very colorful costumes and good music. Of course, the singing was in Spanish so I had no idea what they were saying. The RC excursion was terribly expensive and there was a long wait for the buses.The brochure stated we would be middle distance from the stage but we ended up sitting in the back section. I definitely suggest going with an independent tour company and save half the money and have a lot more flexibility. We were stuck with a herd of hundreds of our fellow cruisers and had to leave right after the first show. If you see the second show, you are seated closer to the stage. We spoke to many guests who went with other tour operators and some on their own but they had to get tickets ahead of time. Read Less

Booked directly with Tropicana Cabaret online. Gave it a 3 because of high bar from an American's perspective based on Vegas/Disney/Broadway experience. However, considering the continuing catching up with the modern world circumstances in Havana, if we were to rate them for when the US was back in the 60's, then they deserve 5-star rating. Tip: Prior to the show, read up on Cuba's history specifically when they were under the Spaniards in order to have an understanding and/or appreciation of the mid to end of their repertoire.
