Sail around Cuba's colourful shores and then experience Havana -- "the Caribbean's most vivacious city", according to Lonely Planet -- with this 10-night cruise-and-stay package from British Travel Award-winners The Holiday Place. Cruises around Cuba are rare and a £900 discount is even rarer -- at £1479 per person, we recommend you snap this one up quickly.
Here's what's included:
"Few places are changing as quickly as Cuba," says Stylist magazine -- luckily this holiday gives you the chance to see a lot of the country in one trip. The cruise sets sail from Havana, stopping at Holguín, Santiago de Cuba (Cuba's second-largest city), Montego Bay in Jamaica and Punta Frances on the Isle of Youth. Highlights along the way include six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, waterfalls, rainforests, top beaches and four national parks.
The Louis Cristal has a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a theatre lounge, a piano bar and a wellness centre. Dining options include the main dining room, a buffet restaurant and a steakhouse.
Finish in Havana with a stay at the Occidental Miramar. A 15-minute drive from Old Havana, the hotel is in the Miramar district, overlooking the sea. It has a fitness room, six tennis courts, a sauna and two bars, as well as buffet and à la carte restaurants and a snack bar.
