Light-heartedness, Sun and History
MSC Cruises to the Caribbean will take you on a discovery of – among other jewels of the region - Cuba, a destination of all-around enjoyment
Among the many of Caribbean islands that can be visited with MSC Cruises, Cuba is a historical and artistic treasure that can only be admired – from the sea and from the land. Strategically located between the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, this splendid island is caressed by the trade winds and enjoys a tropical climate with humid summers and dry winters.
Marvellous natural inlets are the sites of its main cities: Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago di Cuba. Saying Cuba calls to mind the white beaches of Varadero and Cayo Largo, crystal-clear waters, and lush vegetation of all shades of green, as well as the bright colours of the buildings, the music, the food and a culture that blends Spanish colonialism with the traditions of African slaves.
Those who come to Cuba cannot but be enchanted by it. It is no accident that Christopher Columbus exclaimed “The most beautiful land that the human eye has ever seen!” when he landed here. And what about the Nobel prize laureate Ernest Hemingway? He was so fascinated by the island that he decided to move here and spent the next twenty years at his Finca Vigia (lookout house).
