Canadian cruise line offers cruises around Cuba


Beginning December 4, a recently incorporated Canadian cruise line named Cubacruise Inc will offer week long cruises around the entire island of Cuba with many stops along the way.

All cruises will feature Cuban music and dance, local Cuban guides and interpreters. The ship is a 1200 passenger vessel called Louis Cristal and was built in 1980.

According to Sue Bryant, Cruise Critic Contributing Editor, she writes that food and Canadian beer will be shipped to the cruise ship every week. Provisions for a cruise ship in Cuba would be extremely difficult to obtain in Cuba.
