Open the door to Cuba and the Caribbean on this week-long luxury cruise. Embark aboard the Sirena in Miami, an international city built on the foundation of Cuban immigration; and make your way to Great Stirrup Cay—a vision of Bahamian paradise—before visiting the Southeastern cultural hub of Santiago de Cuba; home to Desi Arnaz, Bacardi Rum, and the Battle of San Juan Hill. Sail the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea to the astounding bayside city of Cienfuegos, a former French settlement which remains a paragon of 19th-century urban planning. Your last stop on the island is Havana, where you’ll go beyond the tourist destinations with our unparalleled Go Next Exclusive Excursions. Finally, wave goodbye to Cuba and cruise to Cozumel, the Mexican destination that draws visitors to its extraordinary reefs, ancient Mayan ruins, and expansive beaches, before returning to Miami.
