Piraeus, Greece: Celestyal Cruises today announced it will sail year-round in Cuba beginning 21 November 2016. 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 to bring a growing range of products that provide unique and authentic experiences to its passengers under the Celestyal umbrella.
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 impeccable beachfront and underwater marine life. Additional Cuban calls will include 18th-century Cienfuegos and historic Santiago de Cuba. 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 only Cuba Cruises can provide. The cruise will embark every Monday from Havana, and every Friday from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
“The all-inclusive Cuba Cruise remains the unchallenged, value-for-money cruise to the best of Cuba, ” said Kyriakos Anastassiadis, CEO of Celestyal Cruises. “Our 2015-2016 Cuba Cruise season, our third, was our best yet, and thus, to respond to demand for our authentic Cuban product, our fourth season will begin 21 November 2016, four weeks earlier than last year, and will sail year-round. We look forward to immersing even more passengers from all over the world in our authentic Cuban experience.”
