Experience the largest Caribbean island on this cruise: The Dominican Republic and Cuba. The American explorer Columbus discovered it at the end of 1492 and declared it a Spanish colony. This becomes evident on a panoramic trip around the capital city of Santo Domingo with its UNESCO-protected old town. On Cuba, historical cities await your visit. The fortress Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca in Santiago de Cuba, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was a place of refuge for the rebels of the Cuban Revolution. The day trip to the tropical cities Cienfuegos and Trinidad, with their colourful city centres and splendid buildings, will be unforgettable. Experience Havana on foot or in a vintage car, with music, dancing and a mojito in Hemingway’s favourite bar. At the end, you can relax on the beach in the Mexican seaside resort of Playa del Carmen.
