01/23/13 - Detroit Free Press - Cruise Cuba? Now it's possible
Cuba travel options for Americans keep expanding.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art just posted a trip, "Havana and Beyond
Aboard Sea Spirit" on two dates -- April 5-15 and April 15-25 -- that has
a twist not seen before in fledgling U.S.-Cuba tourism ventures.
Not only does it provide the "people to people" itinerary allowed by the
U.S. government since 2011, it features a small ship cruise. Travelers
will board the Sea Spirit in Montego Bay, Jamaica, then sail to various
ports in Cuba such as Maria la Gorda, Isla de la Juventud, Cienfuegos,
Trinidad, Camagüey, Santiago de Cuba and Havana.
The trip starts at $7,995 per person. For more, call 212-650-2110 or see
Both Cuba and the U.S. government have been incrementally loosening travel
restrictions in the past year.
