Discover Southeast Asia on a Tall Ship for an unique cruise experience

Your Cruise Experience

If you are looking for paradisiacal beaches, beautiful weather and unspoilt nature then look no further than Star Clippers’ Thailand cruises. Also incorporating stops in Penang, Malacca and Langkawi in Malaysia, these itineraries on board Star Clipper are packed with relaxing visits to laid-back destinations like Phuket, Ko Hong and Phang Nga Bay. As you wonder along white sands, you’ll have time to admire the breathtaking natural landscapes before unwinding with a drink in hand. Plus, keen divers will have the chance to explore beneath the waves as well as on land.

Some of these South-East Asia cruises also visit the fantastic city of Singapore. Providing the polar opposite to some of the beach destinations you will visit, it’s a melting pot of cultures filled with people from all walks of life. The impressive skyscrapers tower all around you but are delightfully offset by the greenery of places such as Gardens by the Bay and the National Orchid Garden. Whilst the shops of Orchard Road and restaurants of Clarke Quay offer a lively atmosphere, there is always the chance to find a moment to yourself in the various temples and on islands like Pulau Ubin.

Our cruises to South-East Asia also include itineraries from Bali. Indonesia cruises are certainly becoming increasingly popular, as more and more people become aware of this beautiful and diverse destination. Spread across 17,000 different islands, it is the world’s largest archipelago nation. Expect breathtaking natural sights, such as waterfalls and volcanoes; peaceful beaches, one of which features pink sand; and exotic wildlife that fills the land, sky and sea. Bali and Komodo are just two of the islands that you may be familiar with, each demonstrating Indonesia’s main draws perfectly. The former is home to luxury resorts upon golden sands, whilst the latter is the where you will visit the beautiful Komodo National Park, home to the fearsome Komodo dragon – the world’s largest lizard.

Southern Cruise Itinerary - Phuket to Phuket

Phuket

Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, lies in the Andaman Sea and is joined to the mainland by a causeway. The landscape is one of lush green hills, coconut groves and rubber plantations, with a coastline dotted with a dozen spectacular beaches. Phuket is a holiday paradise with the lively area of Patong providing the up-beat resort life with its many shops, restaurants and bars, leaving the rest of the island to show off her natural beauty and unspoiled culture.

Ko Butang Or Ko Adang, Thailand
These islands are close to the Malaysian island of Langkawi and are characterised by towering rock formations and beautiful beaches. Crystal clear seas team with marine life, ideal for snorkelling and diving or simply enjoying a relaxing swim.

Penang, Malaysia
“The Pearl of the Orient” lies off the northwestern coast of Malaysia and is linked to the mainland by one of the longest bridges in the world. The capital, Georgetown, bears the stamp of a mixture of foreign influences and boasts a 65 story skyscraper called the Komtar, a complex of department stores, restaurants, theatres and squash courts. In total contrast, this beautiful island is home to one of the finest Buddhist temples in south-east Asia, Kek Lok Si Temple.

Ko Adang – Butang Group, Thailand
The Butang Group of islands is about as far south as you can go on the western coast of Thailand. Protected by the Ko Tarutao National Park, this 61-island archipelago is only a stone’s throw from the Malaysian border and way, way off the radar screen of tourist groups. The only habitations on Ko Adang are the Park offices and since there aren’t many visitors, the pristine beaches and deserted coves are all yours.

Ko Rok Nok, Thailand
One of the 15 islands that make up the Lanta group, just off the East Coast of Thailand, these islands are part of a National Marine Park.

Phang Nga Bay, Thailand
The sheer-sided sea mountains that rise vertically out of Phang Nga Bay form some of Thailand’s most spectacular scenery. The islands in this region feature wonderful white sandy beaches and superb coral reefs.

Ko Hong, Thailand
Ko Hong (“hong meaning room”), part of the Ko Hong archipelago is so named because of its large internal lagoon. One of the prettiest bays in the area, huge monolithic rocks provide shade all day long on a beautiful white silica sand beach.

Similan Island Or Ko Miang, Thailand
The Similan Islands, or Nine Islands as they are also known because of their number, nestle in the Andaman Sea to the north of Phuket and are world-renowned among diving enthusiasts for underwater sightseeing. Accessible only by sea, The Similan Islands are stunningly beautiful with scenes straight out of your dreams of a tropical paradise.

Phuket – Patong Bay, Thailand
Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, lies in the Andaman Sea and is joined to the mainland by a causeway. The landscape is one of lush green hills, coconut groves and rubber plantations, with a coastline dotted with a dozen spectacular beaches. Phuket is a holiday paradise with the lively area of Patong providing the up-beat resort life with its many shops, restaurants and bars, leaving the rest of the island to show off her natural beauty and unspoiled culture.

Malacca, Malaysia
Malacca. The Spice Trade. The two are inseparably associated. From the time of the early Renaissance explorers onward, it was the control of the Malaccan Straits that dictated who would own the most precious treasures of the Orient, its spices. The Portuguese, the Dutch and the British ruled Malacca at one time or another. Explore opulent private mansions built in the distinctive Peranakan colonial style and filled with priceless Chinese antiques.

Singapore
Singapore is a city dedicated to business. The spires of its skyscrapers look like a big bar graph pointing to the sky. It is incredibly clean and crime is virtually unknown. But amid this obsessive neatness is a madly chaotic welter of peoples and cultures, drawn to Singapore in pursuit of the almighty Singapore dollar. Get a taste of colonial Singapore at Raffles, where the Singapore Sling was invented, Emerald Hill, with its charming pavilioned pre-war homes, the Victorian botanic garden and the green lawns of the Padang Cricket Club. And lest you forget, be sure to visit Orchard Road for non-stop shopping.

Hin Daeng, Thailand
Hin Daeng which we visit in the early morning is one of the most dramatic dive sites in Thailand. It consists of three small rocks visible at the surface, then plunging down to a depth of over 50 metres.

Ko Rok Nok, Thailand
One of the 15 islands that make up the Lanta group, just off the East Coast of Thailand, these islands are part of a National Marine Park.

Langkawi, Malaysia
The breathtaking Malaysian island of Langkawi is one of a group of 104 islands scattered in the calm seas off the northern-most tip of Malaysia. The clear, tropical waters here provide some of the most spectacular swimming and diving in the world, while scenes of paddy fields contoured into limestone hillsides, lush tropical forests and high tumbling waterfalls, entrance nature lovers on land. Kuah Town, its capital, is a fascinating city of cross-cultures and offers duty-free shopping.

Ko Kradan, Thailand
Ko Kradan has a beautiful coral-sand beach nestling between lush green hills and the crystal Andaman Sea. It’s a tiny island with no roads, villages or convenience stores. This and the fact that 90% of it’s terrain is protected under Hat Chao Mai National Park helps to preserve it’s peace and beauty. This is another fantastic snorkeling destination but if this is not for you then pack a book and relax in a hammock for a few hours, it’s what many other visitors are happy to do.

Ko Hong, Thailand
Ko Hong (“hong meaning room”), part of the Ko Hong archipelago is so named because of its large internal lagoon. One of the prettiest bays in the area, huge monolithic rocks provide shade all day long on a beautiful white silica sand beach.

Bali - Bali Itinerary

Bali Sailing Cruise beach with boats

Benoa – Bali, Indonesia
Benoa is the main cruise port on the island of Bali. There are numerous places that can be accessed from here including the party-centric Kuta, Nusa Dua the popular beach resort with it’s luxury hotels and restaurants as well as coffee plantations and rice terraces. Trips to temples, palaces markets and a bat cave are some of the many things also on offer.

Gili Kondo – Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Kondo is an uninhabited island which is part of thirty three small islands in Eastern Lombok. The word Gili simply means “small island” in the Sasak language. Enjoy snorkelling directly from the beach, the waters are very calm and there are plenty of multi-coloured fish. Afterwards you can relax on the white sand and soak up some rays, or take a long beachcombing stroll.

At Sea

Komodo National Park – Komodo, Indonesia
The park was founded in 1980 with the aim of preserving the unique Komodo dragon and its habitat. Komodo Island is the bleak and desolate domain of this highly aggressive reptile that looks like a relic from the age when dinosaurs walked the earth. The species is notoriously fierce and the “dragon” moniker is well deserved. The Komodo dragon which belongs to a once widespread order of monitor lizards now survives only on a handful of islands. This giant lizard can grow up to 3 metres in length and weigh as much as 150 kg. Like other monitor lizards they have tapered heads, visible ear-openings, a long slender neck, round pupils and eyelids and above all very powerful jaws.

Pink Beach – Komodo, Indonesia
Pink beach, or Pantai Merah, is one of only seven such beaches on the whole planet. The amazing colour comes from microscopic animals called Foraminifera which leave a red pigment on the coral reefs and the name Pantai Merah literally means red beach. Pink beach is bounded by turquoise blue sea and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area, including small islands, hills and mountains. It is said to be the best spot for snorkelling in Komodo National Park.

Satonda Island, Indonesia
Satonda is a tiny uninhabited island formed millions of years ago by an eruption which rocked the sea bed at 1000m and projected volcanic rock upwards to a height of 289 metres above sea level. The local people believe that the island is sacred and you can see offerings in the form of bits of coral hanging in the trees; these have been put there by pilgrims who visit the island in the hope of having their wishes granted. Satonda is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs with a large variety of tropical fish; to protect this unique underwater paradise the island was declared to be a Marine Nature Park in 1999.

Gili Meno & Gili Trawangan – Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Trawangan, universally known as “Gili T”, is the most cosmopolitan and popular island. During the day you can explore the island on food, snorkel, sunbathe, join a dive trip, rent a bike or take a horse carriage ride. These activities are offered by local companies directly at the disembarkation pontoon.

Gili Nanggu – Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Nanggu is on the southwest coast of Lombok and is still relatively undeveloped, offering a pristine natural region for travelers to explore. The only noise that breaks the serene silence is the singing and twittering of the birds. The beaches are powder white sand and the water crystal clear and teaming with thousands of tropical fish making it an ideal destination for snorkeling If you’re lucky you may even spot some sea turtles.

Benoa – Bali, Indonesia
Benoa is the main cruise port on the island of Bali. There are numerous places that can be accessed from here including the party-centric Kuta, Nusa Dua the popular beach resort with it’s luxury hotels and restaurants as well as coffee plantations and rice terraces. Trips to temples, palaces markets and a bat cave are some of the many things also on offer.

Star Clipper

Star Clipper and her sister, Star Flyer, are both stars of the sea; gliding through the water like graceful swans and sitting proudly atop the rolling waves.

Although both four-masted ships, as opposed to five, they are surprisingly taller than Royal Clipper and possess just as much style as their illustrious cousin. However, they are both just 360 feet long and each carries only 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Star Clipper is a true clipper ship, reflecting her proud heritage in every inch of the polished brass and gleaming brightwork that graces her decks and superstructure. Step aboard this striking vessel and you’ll be greeted by a new generation of sailing culture. Here, the grand traditions of the past, which characterise what sailing is all about, exist alongside the comforts and amenities found on the contemporary cruise liners of today.

Don’t let this tribute to sailing’s past fool you though as Star Clipper is a modern ship through and through. She welcomes luxury-loving passengers from all over the world who hold the legacy and customs of the grand era close to their hearts yet yearn for a new and exciting adventure.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel restricted or disorientated on any of our ships as our staff work tirelessly to meet your needs and make you feel comfortable.

Cabins

There are six categories of generous staterooms; giving you plenty of choice when deciding which one suits you best, whilst the expansive decks give the whole ship an uncluttered feel. In fact, you’ll find that, due to the small number of passengers on board and the spacious surroundings, both Star Clipper and Star Flyer offer more outdoor space per person than most conventional cruise ships.

The interior design of Star Clipper again harks back to nautical days gone by. Famous sailing ships are remembered in paintings that are hung on the walls, while teak and lustrous mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud maritime heritage.

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.

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.

  • Stunning coastal cruising
  • Castro’s Isla de la Juventud
  • The archaeological sites at Guanahatabeyes
  • Meeting the people, they’re lovely
  • The (faded) glories of Havana
  • Cigars and rum

In most respects a mirror image of our Sights and Sounds of Cuba itinerary, 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 scope of most visitors. The scenery is amazing, the ports of call redolent of bygone years, the waters and underwater life are amazing.

A lot of tourists try and see Cuba on a road-trip – however 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.

Like Sights and Sounds of Cuba the itinerary runs north-to-south and south-to-north on alternate weeks. The option you choose may well be based on whether you want to start in Havana or end in Havana.

Optional: Cruise & Stay

Cuba is a fascinating place but it’s quite big and there’s only so much we can show you in 7 nights.  Most people think it’s worth extending their stay for a few days either end of the cruise, normally to experienced more of Havana. If so ask us about our hotel arrangements, we’d be happy to book something for you.

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)

Admiralty Bay, Bequia (PM)

Star Clipper usually anchors in the lee of ruggedly beautiful Young Island lying just 54 feet off the southern tip of St. Vincent which is just a 10 minute ferry ride away.

Fort de France, Martinique (AM)

Beach Stop, Martinique (PM)

Martinique is the classic French Caribbean island. Wild and mysterious, yet urbane and sophisticated, it is France with a tropical twist, with something for almost everyone. You won’t be able to resist the charms of spicy Creole cooking and tempting boutiques in Fort de France.

Marigot Bay, St. Lucia (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.

Don’t miss…

  • Historic Hispanic Trinidad (Cuba not the other one!)
  • Stunning coastal cruising
  • Castro’s Isla de la Juventud
  • The archaeological sites at Guanahatabeyes
  • Meeting the people, they’re lovely
  • The (faded) glories of Havana
  • Cigars and rum

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 scope of most visitors. The scenery is amazing, the ports of call redolent of bygone years, the waters and underwater life are amazing.

A lot of tourists try and see Cuba on a road-trip – however, 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.

The good news is it’s still a great time to go. Cuba’s recent rapprochement with the USA meant the floodgates opened for mass package travel – which many thought might spoil the island’s amazing natural beauty, unique social history and (currently) primitive charm and culture. Donald Trump has put something of a brake on that!

Optional: Cruise & Stay

Cuba is a fascinating place but it’s quite big and there’s only so much we can show you in 7 nights.  Most people think it’s worth extending their stay for a few days either end of the cruise. If so ask us about our hotel arrangements, we’d be happy to book something for you.

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

Cuba & Nights Cruise

Day at Sea – Isla de la Juventud

Today will mostly be spent at sea, and by late afternoon we will arrive in the Bay of Singuanea, where we will spend the night.

Isla de la Juventud

This island was previously know as the “Isle of Pines”, until 1978, when Fidel Castro turned the island into a grand communist school for students from around the world, hence the name became Isla de la Juventud – The island of youth. Your optional excursion starts on the beach, where you will board a bus for a short drive to enjoy panoramic sightseeing, and then you will visit the abandoned Panopticon Prison, where Fidel and Raul Castro were held between 1953 – 1955.  After lunch at a typical local restaurant, we will pay a visit to a local art school and also to the maternity ward at a local hospital. Free time to explore the grand boulevard around Nueva Gerona, before returning to the ship for an overnight sailing to Maria La Gorda.

Cuba isla de la juventud

Maria La Gorda

In the morning we will disembark in Maria la Gorda. Our optional excursion will take you to a local school where you can meet the Cuban children and their teachers, and have a close look at the Cuban education system. Later we will visit the headquarters of one of the county’s biggest nature reserves, the Guanahacabibes National Park, which is on the westernmost tip of the island, and holds around 140 archaeological sites linked to the life of the aboriginals known as Guanahatabeyes. Free time before returning to the ship. Dinner on board and overnight sailing to Havana.

Cuba

Havana

After breakfast, we disembark for an Optional excursion in Havana, starting with a walking exploration of Old Havana. Founded in 1519 by the Spanish, Havana became one of the most important ship building centres in the Caribbean, around which a sprawling metropolis grew. Old Havana is a mixture of neo-classical and beautiful old baroque, private balconies and arcades, and it is considered to be one of the most impressive historical city centres in the Caribbean. Lunch will be at a local restaurant, after which we will take a scenic drive in vintage American cars to visit Finca Vigia, the beloved home of Ernest Hemmingway. Free time before we have dinner at the Cafe El Mercurio, and then on to the Cafe Taberna to enjoy the sounds of typical Cuban salsa music. Overnight in Sierra Maestra Port – Old Havana.

Sights and Sounds of Cuba

Havana

After breakfast, disembark for your optional excursion to Fusterlandia, the studio of artist Jose Rodriguez Fuster, with its brightly coloured roofs, walls, benches, doorways and mermaids, which were greatly inspired by Gaudi and Brancusi but perhaps most of all by Picasso and Dubuffet. Visit a cigar factory or participate in rum tasting. We will enjoy lunch at La Barraca Restaurant, which specializes in Cuban cuisine and boasts spectacular views of the Bay of Havana. After lunch there will be an interesting lecture with architect Pedro Vasquez. Free time before returning to the ship for the Captain’s Farewell Dinner.
