Ports of Call
Miami, Florida (Embark and Debark) - Florida's "Magic City" is one of the world's most popular vacation destinations. And, Miami truly is "international" owing to its large Cuban exile population and its role as the de facto gateway between much of Central and South America and Europe. Here you can discover music, cuisine and culture that demonstrate the renewing power of the mixing of cultures. Plan to spend a night or two, before or after your cruise to really get a feel for its soul. Night life in the city tends toward the high-end with ample opportunities to see Miami's cosmopolitan populace dressed to impress. Or experience the one-of-a-kind art deco district in South Beach (plenty of night-life there, too, of course). Nearby, natural Florida can be experienced up close. Board an airboat and explore the Everglades, the "river of grass": and, yes, there will be alligators.
Havana, Cuba - Legendary nightlife, iconic music, and distinct culture. Take the unique opportunity to get to know fascinating local culture while discovering the timeless sights and sounds of nostalgic Havana. Mingle with locals and partake of the cafecito ritual at local caf├ęs as you immerse yourself in a place untouched by time.

TRAVEL POLICY (Announced on November 9, 2017)

Important information to be in compliance with the law and have a memorable vacation in a fascinating destination:

  • If you made your reservation(s) on or after June 16, 2017, and disembark in Cuba , you must participate in a full-day guided group program-offered by the respective cruise line, or another qualifying third-party-sponsored program.
  • If you made your reservation(s) before June 16, 2017, and disembark in Cuba, you may still travel under the 'self-guided' people-to-people exemption or join a Cruise Line-guided group program.
  • All visitors to Cuba are now prohibited from engaging in direct financial transactions with certain entities in Cuba, including some hotels, shopping centers and other tourist-focused businesses. A complete list of restricted businesses in Cuba is issued periodically by the U.S. State Department and will be updated from time to time.
  • Please remember that popular shore excursions sell out quickly, so you'll want to book early to ensure that you get your preferred shore excursions in Cuba.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
