Advantages of Cruising to Cuba

8 Responses

  1. I’ve still not done a cruise, but you certainly make the case for doing one well! What exactly are CUCs? It’s great that travel to Cuba is possible for all Americans when going on a cruise there

      A CUC is a Cuban Convertible Peso – it’s the money used by foreigners. A CUP is a Cuban Peso and the money that Cubans use. However, that is a simplistic explanation as some tourists will use CUPs and locals love to get CUCs. Some establishments only accept one or the other.

    Well, Cuba is a place I have definitely considered…but cruising is something I don’t normally opt for! But the advantages you list here sure do make sense. Absolutely agree that having to only unpack/pack once is a difference maker, and the general overall convenience can’t be beat 🙂

    I haven’t explored by cruise yet, but not sure it is my type of trip. I enjoy scouting the streets for local foods rather than an abundance of buffet type food. I suppose I am a little more adventurous in that I enjoy getting lost in a country a bit, find the hidden gems rather than sticking to a cruise schedule. Not having to lug your suitcase around would be nice though!

      I used to think the same that you did about cruising, but I can assure you that if you are adventurous, you will still find the hidden gems or at least know if you want to return to a destination. And buffet food is just one option on a cruise. Thanks for your comment.

    I’d love to visit Cuba, the old school cars fascinate me. I’m yet to go on a cruise, but the luxury of a cruise certainly appeals me to me.

    I would love to visit Cuba sometime soon, so thank you for the advise. I always thought to do it independently, however, you convinced me to look some other alternatives, and cruising to Cuba sounds too good to be true 🙂
    Travel safe, and keep up the good work. Thanks again for sharing!
