Visit the country celebrated for its distinctive music, dance, literary and art traditions on our new 14-day summer itineraries.
Whether you're drawn to the graceful lines and embellishments of Spanish colonial buildings, lively urban murals in bright, bold, saturated colors, or the deep, dense foliage of the Cuban countryside, you’ll find much to explore on a Holland America Line cruise to Cuba.
Imagine touring Havana’s most famous dance academies, watching masters perform, then perfecting your own salsa technique in a class at El Salon Fiesta. Settling in for an evening of live jazz and traditional Cuban dining in a paladar, one of Havana’s home-based, family-run restaurants. Exploring La Terrazas, a UNESCO Biosphere, where Cuban doctors rely on indigenous flora and fauna to concoct alternative medicines. Or retracing the steps of Ernest Hemingway, including his favorite cafes, water holes and the setting that inspired The Old Man and the Sea.
When you return to your ship at the end of each memorable day, relax in elegant comfort as you continue your Cuban immersion. Whether you’re sipping a refreshing mojito on your suite’s private verandah or savoring gorgeous Cienfuegos Bay from the Panorama deck, a Holland America Line cruise is a delightful way to experience Cuba.
Our new 14-Day Summer Cuba cruises aboard the elegant ms Veendam are highlighted by visits to Havana, Cienfuegos and Half Moon Cay, our award-winning private island. In addition, you'll visit Key West; Georgetown, Cayman Islands; and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
What a great way to vacation in Cuba and the Caribbean from the convenience of traveling roundtrip Boston.
