¿Por qué deberías hacer un crucero a Cuba?

Si piensas visitar Cuba, puedo afirmar que no hay una mejor época para conocer este destino especial que ahora mismo. De hecho, hasta me animo a decir que Cuba es uno de los destinos más emocionantes que podrían haberse incorporado en los cruceros en años. Norwegian Cruise Line offers OFAC-compliant Cuba cruises and shore excursions on board Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun*. So, why should you take a Cuba cruise? ¡Demos un vistazo!

Hospitalidad y belleza natural virgen

Just 90 miles south of Key West, Cuba is the largest island in The Caribbean. It exudes a wealth of natural beauty from its lush mountains to its shimmering coastline and beyond. Besides its exterior allure, the genuine hospitality and vibrant culture of the Cuban people alone are great reasons to visit Cuba. You can experience this up close and personal through Norwegian's OFAC-compliant Cuba cruises and shore excursions.*

Classic Cars in Cuba

El encanto de 1950

Along with its unspoiled beauty comes a 1950's charm, including those classic cars we've all seen in photographs. Si eres un fanático de los coches clásicos, ¿no te gustaría ver estos vehículos en persona? Al ser una de las pocas islas del Caribe que no ha sido influenciada por Estados Unidos, no encontrarás un McDonald's en ninguna parte, exactamente la razón por la que recomiendo visitar Cuba ahora, antes de que se produzcan cambios. Y esta falta de influencia norteamericana también implica que la mayoría de las cosas, incluida la comida en restaurantes, siguen siendo relativamente económicas.

Historia y cultura

Uno de los mejores aspectos de visitar Cuba es su variedad de sitios históricos. Puedes recorrer las calles de adoquines que se remontan al siglo 16 en la Vieja Habana (Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la UNESCO) o descubre la historia de la isla en el Museo de la Revolución. And of course, there are tons of art galleries, a House of Rum museum, and one of Hemingway's favorite hang outs, Floridita, that's across from the National Museum of Fine Arts of Havana.

Stunning Cuban Architecture

Actividades en Cuba

Cuba is home to over 100 hiking and nature trails spread throughout its forests and mountains - you can even hike through the ruins of a 19th century French coffee plantation near Sierra Maestra. ¿Y qué sería de una visita a Cuba si no disfrutas los encantadores ritmos afrocubanos y/o haces un tour por una fábrica de cigarros? Una vez más, les recomiendo que hagan ambas actividades.

Why you should take a Cuba Cruise on Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun

One of the benefits that comes with cruising on Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun on a cruise to Cuba includes a complimentary open bar, which consists of free unlimited beverages and top-tier liquors. Another important benefit includes an overnight stay in Havana, which maximizes the time spent in port. And, of course, Freestyle Dining gives you the flexibility to dine whenever and wherever you'd like, and there's always plenty of on board entertainment to enjoy.
