#CubaDiaries! 5 Reasons Why You Need To Go On Cruise

Thanks to the relaxation in travel restrictions to Cuba, the country has been quite busy playing host to thousands of Americans who believe it to be the ultimate tourist destination.

And for what it’s worth, this Caribbean island deserves all the attention it gets. Colorfully vibrant and culturally rich, the country of Cuba presents a lively atmosphere, complete with people who are always ready to help the partiers out.

And with so many people flocking to visit Cuba, the country is taking the smart route and offering a mode of travel that perfectly serves those who want to quench their wanderlust!

1. You Don’t Have to Worry about Accommodation

Even though it is a big country, Cuban hotels are full to capacity. You can’t risk getting bumped from your room due to overbooking. So why not book a room on a cruise ship instead? This way, you’ll have a unique accommodation that would give you a five-star experience.

2. You Cover More Ground

You’ll do your fair share of walking on the cobblestone streets of Cuba. But you’ll also spend a lot of time travelling from one city to another.

Cruises allow you to bypass that time wastage. Because the ships circumnavigate the island, you reach your destination in lesser time than you would on land. In fact, many cruises that visit Cuba go to at least three ports which include Santiago de Cuba, Cienfuegos and Havana so that’s your trip planned right there.

3. You Get to Enjoy Cuban Cuisine

Cuban cuisine is still in its infancy, so you may not be able to find a large variety of different dishes. With such a limited menu, it is good to have an option for lunch or dinner when you return to the ship.

4. Your Experience is Different

4.Your Experience is Different

Tourism in Cuba is raring so you will see many people from your own country walking the same streets as you. But that doesn’t mean your experience should be the same as well.

Boarding a cruise line gives you a different point-of-view than those on land, and with the availability of so many ports, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge in more activities than what you previously thought.

5. Ships Offer More Amenities

Cuban hotels while many in number do have their share of problems such as electrical issues and service. Cruise ships however, aren’t new additions to the industry and offer modern amenities and facilities in sophisticated settings so that the visitors are satisfied.

Pair that with cheerful scenery, great entertainment and amazing food and you have yourself a cruise ship experience that remains as the highlight of your vacation!

Pack These Four Essentials for Your Trip to Cuba!

Cuba isn’t like your garden variety tourist destination. Gorgeous, vibrant and bursting with culture, Cuba offers all the fun under the sun, and more!

And to enjoy that fully, you need a whole list of essentials.

Now, we’re not going to list the usual passport-mosquito-repellent-tissues-antibacterial-soaps.

Instead, we’re providing you with a short list of items that other travelers have found to be useful, so you get some real advice, based on experience!

Here’s What You Need

Comfy Shoes

You could go the easy way and just travel everywhere by car. But if you really want to explore Cuba, the best way to do so is on foot. However, that may be a problem if you’ve only brought high heels or formal shoes along with you. Understand that the cobblestone streets of Havana are no place for frivolous footwear. So buy comfy shoes like flats or sneakers that keep your feet protected.

A Light Scarf

A scarf is probably the most versatile and useful item for your Cuba trip. Tropical locations such as Cuba can get chilly at night or when you’re at the beach. A scarf serves as a great mode of protection against the cool winds. And makes you look good too. It’s a win-win situation!

Skin Protection

Skin Protection

A light sunscreen just doesn’t cut it.

You’ll be walking in the sun on the hot streets of Cuba for hours at a time. You need gear that would keep you protected, not just from the harsh rays of the sun, but also smoke and pollution.

Go to the doctor ahead of your trip and ask them to prescribe an extra-strength sunscreen that suits your skin. You don’t need to have an adverse reaction to the product.

An Extra Tote Bag

Never underestimate the importance of an extra tote bag! Although you may have succeeded in packing everything you needed while going, remember that you’ll be bringing back a lot of souvenirs.

Add two totes (preferably foldable) to your suitcase when you begin packing and use it to store all your bought items during the trip. This way, everything will remain organized and you’ll only have to pay for the checked bag when you go home.
