Enjoy The Best Of The Caribbean And Cuba Aboard Balmoral
Join Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, Balmoral, on a 34-night ‘Caribbean with Cuba’ cruise departing Southampton on 3 November 2014.
This exotic longer cruise boasts more than just sand, sea and surf: heralding a welcome return to Bermuda for the cruise line, it offers an overnight stay in the iconic, beguiling Cuban capital, Havana.
Balmoral’s first port of call is Funchal, on the island of Madeira, before she heads west across the Atlantic Ocean to Bridgetown, Barbados. Situated on the island’s only natural harbour, this paradise offers a plethora of stunning white sandy beaches and clear blue seas for sunshine and relaxation.
Next, it is onto St. George’s, Grenada, ‘The Spice Island’, with its beautiful horseshoe-shaped harbour and natural beauty; this is no more spectacular than at the popular Annandale Falls and the Seven Sisters Falls. Grand Anse beach is the place to head if relaxation is top of your list.
The Caribbean islands of St. Lucia and Antigua follow, with calls at Castries and St. John’s, before Balmoral arrives in Grand Turk, capital of the Turks & Caicos Islands. It is said that this was where Christopher Columbus first made landfall on his first voyage to the New World in 1492.
The Cuban capital of Havana is next on the itinerary and Balmoral shall spend the evening in port. The original walled ‘Old Havana’ was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, but today there is also so much more to experience – a visit to the Hemingway Museum, take a tour of the city in a classic American car or sample some of the local rum!
Nassau in the Bahamas is next, with the skyline dominated by Atlantis, the luxury hotel resort.
After a final stop in the port city of Hamilton – the capital and administrative centre of Bermuda since 1815 – Balmoral makes her way back across the Atlantic Ocean to Ponta Delgada, in the Azores before arriving back in Southampton after several days at sea.
