HAVANA, November 14th Pearl Seas Cruises is pleased to announce that Pearl Mist’s first November 2017 Cuba sailing has arrived in Havana! In January of this year, Pearl Seas was one of the first cruise lines granted approval by the United States and Cuban governments to sail to Cuba.
The cruises have all been extremely well received and demand for travel to this historic country remains strong. The Line provides an immersive “people-to-people” cultural exchange program where guests engage directly with the Cuban people.
Pearl Seas’ 11-day Cuban Cultural Voyages circumnavigate the beautiful island and are scheduled November through December 2017, and then again in 2018, February through April and November through December. All cruises are roundtrip and depart from Ft. Lauderdale.
Cruising the waters of this fascinating island, from the comfort of the Pearl Mist, is still the best way to experience Cuba. With stops in Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, El Cobre, and Santiago de Cuba, guests can meet Cuba’s warm welcoming people and explore its beauty and rich culture, all while enjoying the hassle-free travel only great cruising provides.
As part of the “people-to-people” cultural exchange, Pearl Mist passengers on the Cuban Cultural Voyage will meet local musicians, historians, and artists.
Guests will also have the special opportunity to explore Havana in a classic American car, enjoy a pottery demonstration in Trinidad, and experience a guided excursion in Cojimar, the fishing village that inspired Ernest Hemingway’s famous novel The Old Man and the Sea.
Pearl Mist’s Cuban Cultural Voyage is truly a once in a lifetime experience. A one-night complimentary pre-cruise hotel package including transportation to the ship is currently available on all new bookings for the spring 2018 Cuba sailings.
