Cuba is such a unique and vibrant destination which everyone is desperately trying to experience; this is displayed in the limited availability at the hotels for tourists; everybody is trying to get a piece.
However at the moment, Silversea is offering a carefully curated, exclusive all-inclusive 11 day Cuban voyage. This allows you to experience the highlights of not only Cuba, but also Panama and Colombia, from the luxury of the Silver Explorer.
You embark the ship at Nassau, Bahamas and from there you start your journey, the expedition ship can carry only 130 guests. The benefit of this beautifully crafted ship is that due to its smaller size, it can reach much more remote areas, there is also a fleet of Zodiac boats which allow guests to go even further off the beaten track; guided by members of the expedition team, such as marine biologists and ornithologists.
Guests can enjoy a variety of activities throughout the voyage such as, diving, hiking and snorkelling, as well and immersing yourself in Cuban culture with the carefully created guest itinerary. Whether you want to explore Havana, being driven around in a vintage car, or admire the marine life and coral reefs that surround Cuba, this cruise will have something for you.
One of the expedition highlights which here at Caribtours we would definitely recommend, is the day trip to Punta Frances, Isle of Youth.
This beautiful island was discovered by Columbus in 1494; you are guided round the island by the on-board marine biologist. They will also take you on a snorkelling tour, where there is the chance to see turtles and parrot fish, among many other species.
There is also the opportunity to explore the island on foot, we would recommend to do this as well as the snorkelling tour, as it’s a great place for iguana spotting!
