Itinerary

Day 1 Havana, Cuba

On arrival in Havana, you will be transferred to the port to board MSC Opera.

Day 2 Havana, Cuba

When you reach Havana, you will be immediately struck by the city’s sensuality. It’s buildings have sinuous lines, and its colours and spiced aromas are intoxicating. The aroma of the city’s famous cigars floats through the air, beaches of sugary hues smoothly transition into transparent waters of the sea, music accompanies the captivating movements of the Caribbean dances, and cars from a different century create a moving exhibit in the streets of the city centre.

Day 3 Havana, Cuba

Havana is famed for its history and culture. It is home to exquisite architecture, classic American cars and cobbled streets and squares, alive with the irresistible rhythms of mambo. Take a stroll around Habana Vieja – Old Havana – to soak up the Latin atmosphere.

Day 4 Isla de Juventud, Cuba

Many of the places visited during your Caribbean cruise are sure to stay with you.

Of these, Punta Frances on the Isla de la Juventud could have served as an inspiration for the perfect deserted island setting for a thousand different adventures thought up by writers such as Stevenson and Barrie. Punta Frances owes its name to the origin of the French Pirates François Leclerc or Jean Latrobe that during the 17th Century were finding shelter in the territory

Day 5 At Sea

Cruising

Day 6 Montego Bay, Jamaica

Located along the northwest coast of Jamaica, Montego Bay is one of the most important cities of the island; it is thought that Christopher Columbus anchored his ships here in 1494 when he “discovered” Jamaica on his way from Cuba; he called the new country Santiago.

The lively city centre is dominated by Gloucester Avenue, the main street or “Hip Strip”, where tourists and locals stroll and investigate different bars; in the centre, one can also admire the St. James Parish Church, an 18th century religious building in Georgian style surrounded by a lush tropical garden.

Day 7 George Town, Cayman Islands

Cozumel is a Mecca for Scuba divers and snorkellers, but if you’re not a diver, there’s a certain appeal in wandering the relaxed inland blocks of San Miguel, away from the piers, spotting Maya ruins and exotic birds.

Day 8 Havana, Cuba

On disembarkation in Havana you will be transferred to the airport for your return overnight flight to Dublin.
