Ports of call

4 out of 5
Easy embarkation and disembarkation at this port. We did not visit the city.

HAVANA, CUBA

4 out of 5
Excursions in the old American cars are the best. Wonderful music/dance venues.

CIENFUEGOS, CUBA

5 out of 5
Loved this city, which is very manageable. It's cleaner than any other city we visited, lots of restoration taking place, easy to shop on main squares or go to cafes. Music performances by local music students were excellent.

SANTIAGO DE CUBA, CUBA

4 out of 5
El Morro and San Juan Hill visits were excellent. Attending AfroCuban jazz at the Iris Club was a highlight. Tours at this port were not quite as well organized as in the other ports.
