Cuba

January 15-24, 2019
Azamara Journey Ship
25 CECH

Cuba feels like nowhere else on earth and cruising is the ideal way to see it – Join IFAF this January as we leave Miami onboard the luxurious, Azamara Club Cruises, Journey ship. We will be spending 2-full days in charming and historic Havana and then visiting out of the way ports, such as Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba which will allow us the opportunity to really get a feel for all of Cuba’s culture and rhythms. This 9-day intensive journey will also stop for the day in beautiful Nassau, Bahamas before returning to Miami.

We’ve looked long and hard for the perfect Cuba adventure, and we think we’ve found it! Cuba’s landscape is changing every day, so this is the time to see it! Visit colorful Revolution Square in Havana, where cobbled streets, 1950s cars and crumbling houses are exactly as you imagined. Cienfuegos has UNESCO World Heritage status, for its city center, which has the largest number of neo-Classical buildings in the Caribbean. If you are interested in the history of the revolution, Santiago de Cuba is the cradle of it! Cuba is also one of the safest places on earth and the people are some of the friendliest you are likely to meet.

On board the all-inclusive Journey, we will have 3-days of cruising which will allow the perfect amount of time for 25 hours of scientific lectures with IFAF’s finest faculty. Don’t Wait to Book! Our discounted block is only available through April 9th. Cabins may still be available after this date but at a higher price. Contact Tangerine Travel today for more information.
