Take this rare opportunity to visit Havana and marvel at this country in a time warp where time seems to have stood still in the 1950's. Carnival have just announced the brand new itineraries to bring their own brand of fun afloat and mix with the powder white sands of St Pete's beach and cool Cuban culture. This easy going 10 night holiday makes the perfect choice for relaxing on the beach , enjoying the party vibe both onshore and afloat and visiting an unusual on-trend destination which has just opened up to the world.
After a thaw in relations between Cuba and the USA - this charming Caribbean island nation is undergoing negotiations to end the embargo the USA have imposed on this country. For decades Cuba has been excluded from any commerce with the USA and any cruise itineraries departing from US ports- hence the reason why time has stood still . It goes without saying that when the embargo is finally lifted Cuba will be swamped by tourist , ships and development which will have an impact on its current under-developed charm of yesteryear.
From the comfort of a modern cruise ship - enjoy all Havana and Cuba have to offer. Admire the Spanish colonial architecture of 16th-century Old Havana core, including the maritime museum in Castillo de la Real fort and the pre-revolutionary Capitolio. 1950's American-made classic cars line the city’s streets and rumba groups play in the painted alley Callejón de Hamel. Salsa emanates from clubs, cabaret is still performed at the famed Tropicana and the heady smell of the world famous Cuban cigars hangs in the air.
