ITINERARY

Day 1: Depart from Australia – Arrive in America

Your adventure kicks off today as you board your international flight to Miami!

Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred to your hotel for the evening and then it’s over to you! When the sun goes down and the South Florida sunset fills the sky, that’s when the best part of the day begins, so why not kick-on with some salsa dancing or a night cap in this beach and Art Deco haven.

Depending on flight scheduling and departure cities, some flights may depart or arrive earlier/later

Day 2: Miami – MSC Seaside Cruise Embarkation (B, L, D)

The day is yours until your luxury MSC Seaside cruise embarkation tonight at 7pm. You could spend the day exploring the buzzing streets of Miami Beach, admiring the lavishly restored Art Deco and mid-century hotels or catching some Spanish tunes on Calle Ocho. Catch a taxi to the cruise port for check-in by 5pm.

Day 3: At Sea (B, L, D)

Revel in the sapphire views today, soaking in the Caribbean high seas at your leisure in one of the top deck pools, sunbathing in a sun lounger, perhaps with a tropical cocktail from the lush Jungle Bar for good measure.

Day 4: Ocho Rios (B, L, D)

Craggy coastlines, brilliant cerulean waters and some of Jamaica’s best waterfalls are at your doorstep today as you pull into Ocho Rios. You could float past coconut palms, bamboo groves and mesmerising tropical flora along the White River, get high up in the mountains or plunge into the sapphire depths of the Blue Hole.

Day 5: George Town – Grand Cayman (B, L, D)

A cosmopolitan paradise of picturesque bays, underwater shipwrecks and untrammelled beaches fringed by lush forest and mysterious caves, don’t hesitate to jump off board today as you dock in George Town and Grand Cayman.

You could snorkel in USS Kittiwake, the Cayman Islands’ top requested dive site, peeking through the windows and rooms of the sunken US Navy submarine rescue ship or enjoy the pristine white sands along Seven Mile Beach with a cocktail.

Day 6: Cozumel (B, L, D)

A diver’s paradise, Cozumel is home to untouched palm-fringed beaches and the crystal-clear Masoamerican Barrier Reef brimming with extraordinary sea life. Take advantage of this marine sanctuary, you might even see an octopus, parrotfish, eagle ray or nurse shark!

Day 7: At Sea (B, L, D)

Say goodbye to the MSC Seaside after breakfast as you make your own way to the airport for your flight to Cuba.

Explore Havana’s world-class beaches at your leisure today, perhaps reclining along the near-endless shores of Playas de Este at Santa Maria Beach with a signature strawberry and basil mojito.

Day 11: Playa Giron – Cienfuegos (B)

Discover the scuba-diving haven of Playa Giron today. Less-travelled by tourists, the ‘Bay of Pigs’ is a coastal escape that was once the site of the failed invasion of Cuba. Continue to Cienfuegos, a gorgeous city home to Castillo de Jagua, an elegant French-influenced ancient fort used to defend against pirate attacks.

Day 12 – 13: Cienfuegos – Trinidad (B)

Visit the memorial to Cuba’s father of revolution, Che Guevara in Santa Clara today, continuing to Trinidad where you’ll spend the next two days admiring the colonial and natural wonders. Painted in sensational colours and once the heart of Cuba’s sugar district, this city is a treat for the eyes.

Take the opportunity to make a splash in the luminous waters of Playa Ancon, visit the lively Plaza Mayor and savour a traditional Cuban pink gin with plenty of bitters. Come night, the jazz and rumba scene buzzes with life.

Day 14 – 15: Vinales (B)

Travel west through the lush green forestry and mogotes – limestone hills with sheer rock faces – of the breathtaking Pinar del Rio Valley to arrive in Vinales today. Dominated by tobacco farms, you could get your hands on an iconic Cuban cigar and learn to salsa over the next two days.

Be chauffeured through the grand avenues of Havana today in a classic 1950s Americana car, driving through New Havana, Old Havana and affluent Miramar to arrive in the infamous Colon cemetery, home to over 500 mausoleums, chapels and family values from the renaissance to neoclassical and Art Deco-style.
