Timeless Cuba January 12-20, 2019

Open the door to Cuba's soul on this week-long luxury cruise through the heart of this once-forbidden island nation. Embark Sirena in Miami, and make your way to Havana, Cuba's largest city and the epicenter of the nation's lively lifestyle. From Havana, sail the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea to the astounding bayside city of Cienfuegos, a former French settlement which remains a paragon of nineteenth-century urban planning. Then, sail to Santiago de Cuba, the birthplace of Desi Arnaz and Bacardi Rum and the site of the Cuban Revolution's victory proclamation.
