The Best of Cuba what a absolute joke and waste of money . 1.5 hrs of port time in the dark plus a trip to key west instead of Santiago de Cuba . Terrible smell of drainage on deck 4 & 5. Food in windjamer luke warm & not kept at correct temperature.

Review summaryOur iterinary was changed a few days before we left Santiago de Cuba swapped for Key West. Havana Cuba arrived at 3pm off ship and through customs by 6.30pm extremley poor information given by RC crew regarding delays & money exchange. Queues for 2 days on board with people complaining and desperately upset they could not see family & tours cancelled by RCL. We cancelled our 3 hr tour due to it being dark and places we was planning on seeing being closed. $75 per person taken from RCL for visa which we used for 1.5 hrs.

Do not book iterinary where you will arrive in the afternoon in Havana Cuba you will not see anything in the dark. Shops shut at 5pm and places of interest. Money exchange is shut by 8pm so be back in time to change any CUC back.
