There is nowhere else in the Caribbean like Cuba. For well-travelled cruisers who feel they’ve “been there, done that”, this is a game-changer. In many ways, Cuba has been frozen in time. Beautifully restored colonial homes stand next to aging facades, and classic cars rumble down streets. Cobblestoned streets and bustling plazas give Old Havana a European flair.

But Cuba is so much more than a tropical time capsule. Cuba is not a postcard-perfect, pre-packaged tourist destination. Cuba is eclectic, contradictory, vibrant, and complex. Cuba is for those who love travel. To see below the surface, visit with Azamara. After all, a travel company dedicated to Destination Immersion® experiences is your best route to a truly authentic experience.

When you cruise to Cuba, you’ll be traveling under the category of “People-to-people travel”. This is defined as a trip that includes meaningful interactions between the traveler and individuals in Cuba. If you’ve cruised with Azamara before, you know that connecting travelers with locals is what we do best!

Cuban culture is as diverse as it is fascinating.

Our Azamara Shore Excursions tours will introduce you to the real Cuba with cultural experiences that are both enjoyable and educational. From dominoes to dancing and everything in between, you'll be fully engaged with Cuba's people, places, and passions throughout your voyage.

Dominoes is commonly referred to as "Cuba's second national sport" - baseball being the first.

Havana is the cultural hub of Cuba, and we’ll dock in the heart of the city. You’ll find great food, lively music and dance, trendy art galleries, and beautiful art deco architecture that will have you pulling out your camera at every turn. Literature lovers will want to visit Ernest Hemingway’s two favorite watering holes, La Bodeguita del Medio and La Floridita.

Are you a sports lover? Catch a baseball game! The game won’t be your only form of entertainment – people-watching offers just as much excitement. Cubans are very passionate about baseball, so be prepared for some lively debates!

There is no easier, and no better way to immerse yourself in the mystique of Cuba than by joining us on an upcoming cruise.
