Overview

Timeless Cuba

JAN. 24 - FEB. 1, 2020
Miami, Havana, Cienfuegos, Santiago de Cuba
Aboard Oceania Cruises’ Sirena

Open the door to Cuba’s soul on this week-long luxury cruise through the heart of this once-forbidden island nation. Embark aboard the Sirena in Miami, an international city built on the foundation of Cuban immigration, and make your way to Havana, Cuba’s largest city and the epicenter of the nation’s lively lifestyle. Go beyond the tourist destinations during your two days in Havana with our unparalleled exclusive excursions. Dive deep into the city’s 500 years of history and culture with intimate group sizes and uniquely educational experiences. From Havana, sail the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea to the astounding bayside city of Cienfuegos, a former French settlement which remains a paragon of 19th century urban planning. Your last stop on the island is the southeastern cultural hub of Santiago de Cuba. As the birthplace of Desi Arnaz and Bacardi Rum, home to the tide-turning Battle of San Juan Hill, and the site of the Cuban Revolution’s victory proclamation, every aspect of Cuban history is deeply ingrained in the island’s second largest city.
