Regent Seven Seas Cruises is going to launch a new voyage to Cuba from October 22 to November 1, 2019. This includes a full day and evening in Havana, and overnight stays in Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos, aboard Seven Seas Mariner. This sailing is the company’s second immersive Cuban voyage after the first one had sold out, Regent says.

The itinerary includes:

Havana: Travelers will have the opportunity to engage with locals via Regent’s OFAC-compliant tours. They can travel the cobbled streets of Havana, walk down the Malecón, take photos with a 50s Cadillac, buy hand-made Cuban cigars, order a mojito at Hemingway’s favorite bar and dance at a salsa club. Regent Seven Seas Cruises has the exclusive rights for private visits of the  Fabrica de Arte Cubano, outside of the general operating hours

Santiago de Cuba: Founded in the early 16th century, this city was the capital of Cuba for nearly 100 years until the Spanish changed it to Havana in the 17th century. Travelers can see Castillo de San Pedrode la Roca and the Cementerio Santa Ifigenia, where Cuban hero José Martí and Emilio Bacardí Moreau of the rum dynasty are both buried.

Cienfuegos: Located on the southern coast of Cuba, this destination has Spanish colonial buildings with a hint of French influence. The city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Travelers can visit the Arch of Triumph and Casa del Fundador, as well as the Tomás Terry Theatre near Jose Martí Park, an urban setting named for the Cuban national hero.

Seven Seas Voyager will also go to the Isla de la Juventud in March 2019.
