Empress Of The Seas
CUBA'S BOLDEST SHORE EXPLORER
This is not itinerary idling. This is delving deep into shores that few have explored on the most adventurous cruise ship sailing Cuba - Empress of the Seas?. Let a local give you an insider's perspective on a classic car ride along Havana's historic Malecon. Go cobblestone road rambling and Afro-Cuban beat bumping in Santiago de Cuba, where some of the islands' most influential musicians got their start. And get your eco-tour on in Cienfuegos to discover why they call it the "Pearl of the South." All while immersing yourself in the Cuban culture onboard, like special entertainment, cuisine and guest lectures. No other major cruise line shows you Cuba like this.
