Review summary

Everyone should visit Cuba. It's a vey educational experience. I feel fortunate and thankful to be a US citizen after my visit to Cuba. Took the Old Colonial Havanna tour. The tour guide was excellent but there is a lot of walking on this tour and it's very hot in August in Havanna. We also went on the farm to table tour which had an excellent tour guide. This was very educational and the cheese made at the farm was especially good.

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Eat in the restaurant if you can; the buffet is always a mad rush. Food could be better.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Good musicians with two good dance floors but the musicians didn't play very long in any one place. You had to really follow the schedule to find music.

Great comedian...very entertaining.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Great staff but they all seemed to under stress and over worked. Waiters especially seemed overworked...they did a great job but it was difficult given they were waiting so many tables

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Ship was easy to navigate.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our cabin was small but clean and everything seemed to work.

Ship tip

If you are the party hardy type and like activity 24 x 7, you will love it. If you are seeking a quiet place, you won't find it onboard.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

I'm from Florida

Unsettling experience but very educational. Tours need some fine tuning...too much walking when it's so hot. Still, I recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to better understand Cuba and its people.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port
