InsightCuba launches Masala Expeditions small cruises to new destinations around the world

InsightCuba has announced it has added a new cruise ship brand to its portfolio, which will allow travellers to explore destinations all over the world. Masala Expeditions will offer six small ship cruises that will enable travellers to enjoy a variety of people-to-people experiences.

The new cruise expeditions will travel to a variety of destinations across the globe, including Kenya, the Seychelles, Dubai, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, Greece, and the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. The small ships can access ports that are more difficult for larger vessels, making it easier for passengers to explore less touristy places.

The new sailings will be operated on small vessels, with the largest – the M/Y Voyager - having just 36 cabins. Passengers can enjoy people-to-people style experiences and activities that will allow them to embrace the destination’s culture, heritage and people.

The 11-day Cruise Dubai and Seychelles takes guests from the theme parks, underwater zoo and safari of Dubai. They will then fly to the Seychelles where they will spend eight days cruising on a small yacht while taking in the idyllic sights, and enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving activities and various tours.

The Safari in Kenya and Cruise Seychelles will take tourists on a 10-day tour visiting Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve, the Rift Valley, and the capital Nairobi. Travellers will then sail around Cousin Island before heading to the Seychelles for a luxury sailing on-board the M/Y Pegasus vessel.

Guests on the 10-day Sail Spain and Portugal cruise can enjoy trips to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Alhambra and the Genralife Gardens and the world’s largest gothic cathedral in Seville. The cruise will sail from Malaga, Motril, Granada, Gibraltar, Seville and Portugal.
Cruise Iceland will take passengers on an eight-day tour of this magnificent island. Starting in the capital Reykjavik, guests will hop aboard the M/Y Callisto ship where they will head off on a tour around Heimay Island, Lake Myvatn, and the Godafoss Waterfall.

The 14-day Sail the Dalmatian Coast cruise starts with a tour in the main cities of Croatia. Tourists will then travel around Croatia’s stunning jagged cast, visiting Zagreb, Opatija, Korcula, Hvar and the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro.

The seven-day Sail the Greek Isles itinerary starts in Athens, where visitors can explore Acropolis, take a drive through the ancient city, and wander through the historic Plaka. Guests will then set sail to the uninhabited island of Poliegos before heading off to explore the islands of Folegandros, Santorini, Paros, Mykonos, Syros, and many more.

InsightCuba is a leading tour operator that specialises in organising people-to-people travel programmes for Americans visiting Cuba. In 2000, the company was the first to offer trips to Cuba for U.S residents since 1961, and since then it has become one of the best tour operators, offering a wide range of cultural programmes to the island. The addition of Masala Expeditions enable InsightCuba to expand its travel offerings beyond Cuba, to beautiful destinations across the world
