Cuba was a destination of cruises from Tampa, Florida, until the government changed regulations again. About 40 cruises were available on Carnival Cruises and Royal Caribbean annually. The island nation is located in the middle of the most popular Caribbean cruise itineraries and is very close to the USA.
Cuba's cruise port of call is Havana, a city of 2 million with interesting places to visit. Enjoy the Malecon at sunset, catch a taxi ride in a 1950's car, see a show at the Tropicana, tour a cigar factory, sip a daiquiri at El Floridita, shop at a craft/fruit market, visit Morro Cabana fort, and explore Old Havana.
Travel restrictions for Americans going to Cuba had been relaxed. Booking a program with an authorized US tour operator partner made it easy.
