Travel was not as attractive in Cuba in the past five decades when Fidel Castro was still at the helm of its government. While there have been significant improvements in the country, the stifling policies prevented its economic growth including tourism. With the Cuban Revolution and the Cold War with the United States all behind now, the Americans and the other travelers can better enjoy Cuba’s offerings – superb beaches, rich culture, first-class casinos, mouth-watering cuisines, night-time dancing and more.
In a historic move, U.S. President Barack Obama ended the Cold War to re-establish diplomatic relations with Cuba last December 10, 2014. Travelers are among those who would stand to benefit from this move. Read about it in this news “Travel boom to Cuba expected in light of historical shift in U.S. and Cuba relations” posted in Cruise Weekly – News Section.
The USA and Cuba have agreed to establish diplomatic relations and open economic and travel ties, announced Wednesday afternoon by both President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro. While unlicensed U.S. tourist travel remains banned, Cuba-Cruise, a Canadian company, anticipates increased bookings from international travelers eager to explore a country that is virtually free of American commercialization and chockfull with charm before it might change.
If you are a cruiser by heart, or you are looking for your next cruising destination, you can now include this country in your bucket list. Eyeing this country as your next place of travel is expected by cruise companies including this scenic country in their itinerary.
“We do not anticipate that Wednesday’s breaking news regarding the U.S. and Cuba will have an immediate effect on our business practices and model,” said Dugald Wells, Cuba-Cruise President and CEO. “However, we absolutely foresee an increase in bookings from international travellers who are drawn to Cuba’s incredibly preserved culture, its mix of old and new world charm, and who want to experience the iconic country before it opens its doors any further.”
One cruise company that has been cruising Cuban waters you would like to check out is Cuba-Cruise, a Canadian born and bred company into sailing.
In 2013, Cuba-Cruise revolutionized travel by offering the first regularly scheduled circumnavigation cruise around the Castro-ruled island. Cuba-Cruise is a completely new way to discover the island’s rich culture, history, and world famous beaches. It’s nothing like the fly & fry vacations travelers have been accustomed to when visiting the Caribbean, nor will travelers find themselves in front of American hotels or retail chain stores.
Cuba-Cruise does not only showcase the gorgeous and exotic nook and crannies of the tropical island, it also promotes rich Cuban culture. With its comprehensive program, travelers can visit six ports of call including the island’s most memorable destinations – Havana, Santiago de Cuba, and Punta Frances on the peaceful Isla de la Juventud.
