Celestyal Cruises on Tuesday announced that it will sail year-round in Cuba beginning on November 21, four weeks earlier than last year, due to increased demand for the authentic Cuban product it offers.
Following its third successful season in Cuba, during which the company was the only cruise line to visit four ports of call, the Cuba Cruise product will be rebranded as Celestyal Cruises. The company aims this way to bring a growing range of products that provide unique and authentic experiences to its passengers under the Celestyal umbrella.
“The all-inclusive Cuba Cruise remains the unchallenged, value-for-money cruise to the best of Cuba”, said Kyriakos Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises.
Through the final weeks of 2016 and for all of 2017, the Celestyal Crystal will sail seven-night all-inclusive cruises that include two days in Havana and a call at Maria La Gorda, known for its impressive beachfront and underwater marine life.
Additional Cuban calls will include 18th-century Cienfuegos and historic Santiago de Cuba.
“We look forward to immersing even more passengers from all over the world in our authentic Cuban experience”, Mr Anastassiadis said.
A selection of shore excursions at each port of call will provide incredible experiences to passengers of all ages and tastes.
The extended sailing season means passengers will have more opportunities to enjoy the unique immersion in Cuban culture that Cuba Cruises provides.
The cruise will embark every Monday from Havana, and every Friday from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
