Discover Cuba on a Tall Ship for an unique cruise experience

Your Cruise Experience

Full of Latin American passion and culture, Cuba is as vibrant and interesting as any other country in this part of the world. Due to it’s location on the North American shelf, it is part of this continent rather than South America, however the region is also known as Central America to a lot of people.

Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean Sea and has a population of around 11 million. It has only been fully accessible to tourists in the last fifteen years but, after a period of restricted tourism, it now fully embraces tourists from all over the world and is experiencing a large share of the overall visitors to the Caribbean region.

All of our Cuba cruises are conducted aboard Star Flyer and generally consist of a trip along the coast of the main isle along with explorations of the surrounding islands; starting and finishing at the port of Cienfuegos. You’ll get the chance to sunbath on private beaches, shop on the duty-free island of Grand Cayman and dive with various species of marine life; all within surroundings that you could easily mistake for heaven.

Cienfuegos, Cuba

When you gaze at the lovely neo-classical homes and elegant public buildings lining the Prado, Cienfuegos mile-long main boulevard, you can see the Empire origins of this gracious city on the Bahia de Cienfuegos. Founded in 1819 by French immigrants, Cienfuegos is a World Heritage Site which, because of the relative isolation of Cuba, has escaped the ravages of many modern cities. Architectural highlights of the city and nearby Punta Gorda include the fanciful Palacio de Valle, the Jagua Fortress, the luxuriant Jardin Botanico, the Cathedral and the Victorian-era yacht club.

George Town, Grand Cayman

It’s amazing to realize that this once unknown small Caribbean island is now the center of once of the world’s largest banking economies, the home of uncounted billions in offshore assets. Tax-free, duty-free and largely restriction-free, Grand Cayman is a magnet for money. Shopping is a full-time occupation here. But there is another side to Grand Cayman, where endless beaches, quiet lagoons and laid-back beach bars beckon. Grand Cayman was the first island to offer close encounters with tame sting-rays, and it is also the home of the famous Atlantis submarine tour.

Cayo Rico, Cuba

Cayo Rico really is a hidden gem. This tiny islet is peaceful and isolated and you are more likely to be outnumbered by it’s population of iguanas than fellow tourists. You can pretend you are a castaway for the day as you splash around in the crystal clear waters that surround it’s powdery white beaches. Make sure you bring your snorkel gear in order to appreciate the spectacular marine life that is abundant in this necklace of coral islets that lie off the southern Cuban coast.

Cayo Largo, Cuba

With 28 kilometers of white sand beach, only 3 Kilometers wide and containing just a few small resorts, Cayo Largo recalls the Caribbean that used to be. The 2nd largest island of the Canarreos Archipelago is a marine wildlife sanctuary for many species. You’ll find turtle kraals where palm-sized hatchlings are raised to adult size and released to the sea, visit an island where iguanas roam freely and then bask in a natural swimming pool of the ocean, surrounded by dunes of flour-fine sand.

Punta Francis, Isla De La Juventud – Cuba

Oddly enough, there are both black sand and white sand beaches on Isla de la Juventud (once named Isle of Pines, because of the lumber that is harvested here). Punta Francis’ beach is the most famous, especially for diving and snorkeling. Isla de la Juventud was at one time a favorite haven for pirates and adventurers – Francis Drake, John Hawkins and Henry Morgan found refuge on these shores – prompting Robert Louis Stevenson to base his Treasure Island here. There are fascinating caves containing over 200 ancient Indian pictographs. You can also visit the skeletal remains of a huge 3-domed, semi-circular prison, now abandoned, where Fidel Castro was held before the revolution.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Ah Jamaica, where reggae and ska were born, and the beat goes on and on. The lush tropical landscape, the soaring mountains, inviting beaches and gentle waterfalls, the scent of gardenia and jasmine. The taste of a pina colada and pungent aroma of jerk. No wonder Jamaican music is so inspired! For a taste of Jamaica’s other enticements, visit Rose Hall to learn the history of plantation life, climb a waterfall at Dunn’s River, paddle with guide in a nature preserve or visit the birthplace of Reggae’s King, Bob Marley.

Port Antonio, Jamaica

The banana boom created Port Antonio. A sleepy little missionary town until the 1880’s, Port Antonio became Jamaica’s rising star when the Victorian taste for fresh bananas was fed by fruit from Port Antonio’s plantations. In the 1920’s, Port Antonio became a favourite hangout for movie stars and vacationing royalty. It was film idol Errol Flynn who literally washed up in a shipwreck on these shores and started the famous banana boat raft cruises down the Rio Grande. Be sure to visit the Blue Lagoon, purportedly bottomless (but actually 200 feet deep), the ruins of Folly Mansion, and Fort George on Navy Island, once owned by Flynn.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

There is so much history in Santo Domingo! In fact, you could call this city the family seat of the Columbus clan. The America’s oldest city was founded by Bartolome Columbus in 1496. The bones of the explorer and patriarch, Christopher Columbus, lie in the old fort on the Ozama River. And in the sprawling vice-regal residence, built by Columbus’ son, Diego Colon in 1509, you can see where the family gathered to entertain, rule and conduct the expanding business of Spain’s New World empire. After you’ve explored the Zona Colonial, stroll to the Malecon for a cerveza and tapas at a local bistro.

White Bay, Jost Van Dyke – B.V.I.

Once the hideaway for a Dutch pirate of the same name, Jost van Dyke welcomes visitors with first-rate hiking trails and the best beaches in the British Virgin Islands. Be sure to have a drink at the famous Foxy’s Tamarind Bar in Great harbour.

Soper’s Hole, Tortola – B.V.I.

Soper’s Hole is where ‘laid back’ is a jealously cultivated way of life. Visit the nearby ruins of 17th century Dutch Fort Recovery. There are also several favourite ‘watering holes’, beloved by crews of visiting yachts, where the local gossip flows as freely as the rum.

Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda – B.V.I.

Take a bath at the “Baths”, Virgin Gorda’s unique water grottos formed eons ago by ancient lava flows. Huge boulders lie scattered around the natural pools, which are delightful for swimming or soaking. Virgin Gorda is also home to Little Dix Bay, the Bitter End Yacht Club, some excellent beaches, and the bestsailing around.

Road Bay, Anguilla

Columbus thought this long flat island with its multitude of white sand coves looked like an undulating eel, so he named it Anguilla. The island has been a British colony/dependency since it was first settled in 1650. Recently, Anguilla has been discovered by the cognoscenti, who find the island’s small upscale resorts an ideal retreat to get away from it all. Try the haute cuisine at Malliouhana, or the Arabian Nights ambience of Pimms.

Gustavia, St. Barts

In its elegant little capital of Gustavia, French joie de vivre is tempered by Swedish spic and span neatness. Diversions include duty-free shopping in exquisite boutiques, beautiful beaches, excellent dining and people-watching.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The smallest island in the world shared by two countries, St. Martin/St. Maarten is big on shopping. Whether you go Dutch in Philipsburg or prefer Marigot’s French touch, you’re always welcome.

Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands

Christopher Columbus discovered Cayman Brac in 1503. He named it and departed, little knowing what wonders lay beneath the island’s shores. In Bloody Bay,1000 feet of nearly vertical cliff wall descend to the ocean floor, making it one of world’s premier diving experiences. It was first explored and made famous by Jacques Cousteau, but today even novice divers can marvel at the amazing variety of fish, corals and other marine life that make their homes in nooks, crannies and cavities at every depth on the wall. If you prefer your sightseeing above, a pond on Cayman Brac holds a huge rookery of red-footed boobies – probably the largest in the world.

Caribbean Royal Clipper

Categories:

Romance the wind on a Tall Ship that offers a cruise experience like no other

7 Nights, 8 days cruise.

She is a star of the sea. The Royal Clipper  is as fleet as the wind and as graceful as  a swan.

This is a true clipper ship reflecting proud heritage in every inch of her polished brass and gleaming brightwork. Step aboard this unique vessel and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Royal Clipper is a modern cruise ship in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. Royal Clipper is 439 feet long and carries just 227 guests in pampered comfort.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Royal Clipper. This ship offer spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that this ship offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.

The décor of Royal Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.

All Star Clippers ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, our convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officers and crew.

Grenadine Islands Itinerary

Bridgetown, Barbados

On the wild and rugged east coast of Barbados, the isolated beaches are the colour of sunrise, the red sands having blown all the way across the Atlantic from the Sahara. The easternmost island of the Windwards, and indeed, of the entire Caribbean, reaches out to Africa and the Old World, as if not quite part of the New. Bridgetown, Barbados, is an interesting town full of contrasts. George Washington actually slept here! Trafalgar Square reminds you that the laidback, rum- and fun-loving island’s British influenced heritage includes revered traditions like cricket and high tea.

Captain’s Best, Grenadines

Thirty islands and specks of sand make up the gloriously untouched Grenadines. We’ll call on one of these Islands, for a blissful, laid-back beach day. We’re sure, you’ll never be disappointed.

St. George’s, Grenada

The aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla baking in the sun – these are the tropical flavours of Grenada. From the horseshoe shaped Carenage at St. George’s, follow the Sendall Tunnel (hand-built in 1895) to the Esplanade and old Ft. George for a spectacular view of Grenada.

Tobago Cays, Grenadines

Four small islets, virtually deserted but enormously appealing for those who love underwater exploration, Tobago Cays is a national park where snorkelling is superb.

Kingstown, St. Vincent  (AM)

Fort de France, Martinique (AM)

Soufriere, St. Lucia (PM)

Marigot Bay, one of the prettiest anchorages in the Caribbean, is surrounded by lush hills and ringed by drooping coconut palms.

“This is the most beautiful land one has ever seen.” Christopher Columbus

7 Nights, 8 days, departing Saturdays.

Why go: it’s not so much a question of ‘why go’ as ‘why go now?’ Hidden from tourists for many years Cuba’s recent rapprochement with the USA means the floodgates have opened for mass package travel – which most experts think may spoil the island’s amazing natural beauty, unique social history and (currently) primitive charm and culture within a few short seasons. You could of course fly there and see it on a road trip – but given Cuba’s road network and internal transport system a cruise around the coast is far and away the best option to see as much as possible in a short 7-day visit that reaches the part most tourists never get to see.

In brief: this cruise offers a wonderful combination of the delights of old Havana and a coastal cruise that provides unique insights into Cuban history and culture beyond the reach of most visitors. The scenery is amazing, the ports of call redolent of bygone years, the waters and underwater life are amazing.

Your vessel: the flagship of the Variety cruises fleet M/S Variety Voyager

Ports of call: Cienfuegos – Trinidad - Cayo Largo - Isla Juventud - Havana
