Alexander + Roberts to launch private Cuba cruises in April

Alexander + Roberts has revealed that it will launch three private sailings to Cuba this spring.

The American travel company announced that it will offer the eight-day cruises to Cuba from April, 2016 on its 50-passenger mega-yacht, the Panorama II.

The cruises will sail from Cienfuegos for Havana, and will stop at three UNESCO World Heritage Sites along the way.

The itinerary includes a trip to Trinidad to explore its rich architectural heritage; entertainment from Cuban musicians, singers and dancers; a tour led by an expert naturalist along the trails of Guanahacabibes National Park; a visit to the famous Buena Vista Social Club, and dinner at a family-run paladar (private restaurant).

With prices starting from $4,199 per person for outside staterooms, the seven-night sailings will include return charter flights between Miami and Cuba, all meals, professional English-speaking Cuban guides, walking tours, sightseeing, and people-to-people exchanges with local Cubans.

Departure dates for the private Cuba cruises are 2nd April, 9th April, and 16th April, 2016.

Alexander + Roberts said they added the new cruises and its four land trips to the island in order to meet the:

"... unprecedented American demand for Cuba and sold-out winter and spring departures."

Under the current rules of the ongoing U.S-Cuba travel embargo, U.S travellers can currently visit the Caribbean island through people to people programmes and tours within 12 categories, such as education, culture, and religion that have been organised by licensed U.S tour operators.

President Obama's administration relaxed restriction for U.S travellers, and in July, 2015, embassies opened in Washington and Havana, following more than five decades of hostilities between the two countries.

Cuba is a communist island nation that lies in the Caribbean Sea, south of the Bahamas. Tourists can unwind on the beautiful white and golden sand beaches; snorkel and scuba dive along the world's second largest barrier reef; or take tours of the historic cities to embrace the culture of this vibrant nation.
