Ever since the US and
Cuban governments began reestablishing diplomatic ties, travel companies have
been clamoring to do business in Cuba. And that includes cruise lines.
Haimark Line, a small-ship luxury cruise operator, recently announced plans to
have its 105-cabin MS Saint Laurent sail 9-night round-trip voyages from Miami
beginning in February 2016. The 15 trips—a part of Cuba's
people-to-people cultural exchange program—will visit ports including
Havana, Maria La Gorda, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad. These sailings will be
done in conjunction with UCL, Haimark's partner in the Cuba itineraries.
UCL already has approval for ocean transport of passengers between ports in
the US and ports in Cuba. UCL is now in discussion with the Cuban government
on an amendment to the agreement which would allow passengers to be moved in
between Cuban ports, and overnight on the ship. All indications are that the
approval will go through. Rates begin from $4,599 per person, double
occupancy, and include all meals, beverages and excursions. Jacqueline
