New Small-Ship Cruises Launching in Cuba

Cruise News – May 8, 2015

International Expeditions is launching new small-ship cruises on Cuba’s western coast, from Cienfuegos to Havana, officials said.

The 7-day sailings, coupled with hotel nights for a 10-day package, will be aboard the 48-passenger sailing yacht Panorama, embarking on December 17, January 28, and March 10, 2016. They fall under the allowable travel category of people-to-people exchanges.

“Demand for travel is growing and travelers want to explore the island before it inevitably changes,” said Steve Cox, executive director and head of Cuba Program Development. “This program provides a comfortable base of exploration, allowing guests to experience Cuba without staying in hotels that often don’t meet U.S. standards. While travel restrictions have eased, Cuba is still a country with limited infrastructure and accommodations suitable for discerning travelers.”

The tour company also operates two small-group land programs on the island.
