Havana

Een onweerstaanbare charme

Wanneer u aan wal gaat in Havana tijdens een cruise naar het Caribisch gebied, wordt u gelijk getroffen door de sensualiteit van de stad.


De gebouwen hebben er golvende lijnen en de kleuren en gekruide aroma's zijn er bedwelmend. De geur van de beroemde sigaren van de stad zweeft door de lucht, de suikerkleurige stranden gaan vlot over in het heldere water van de zee, muziek begeleidt de meeslepende bewegingen van de Caribische dansen en auto's uit een andere eeuw creëren een bewegende tentoonstelling in de straten van het stadscentrum. Varen met MSC Cruises naar Cuba stelt u in staat om deze fascinerende wereld zelf te ervaren.

Tijdens uw reis zal op het moment dat u uit uw cruiseschip stapt een excursie u meenemen op ontdekkingsreis naar de hoofdstad: een dichtbevolkte stad van meer dan twee miljoen inwoners die vol zit met tegenstellingen. Een van de niet te missen plekken om te bezoeken is Castillo del Morro: een burcht in de 16e eeuw gebouwd op een heuvel die zijn naam ontleent aan de Bijbelse wijze mannen. Van hieruit bereikt u Vieja Habana (Oud Havana) bereiken, een UNESCO-werelderfgoed, met haar Plaza San Francisco de Asis, Plaza de Armas, Plaza Vieja en Plaza de la Catedral. Bodeguita del Medio, een plek waar figuren als Ernst Hemingway, Salvador Allende en Pablo Neruda een mojito hebben gedronken, is een bezoekje waard. El Capitolio (het overheidsgebouw), een van de symbolen van Cuba, valt door zijn witte kleur op tussen de gekleurde koloniale gebouwen. Plaza de la Revolución is ook indrukwekkend. Hier bevinden zich het monument ter ere van nationale held José Martí en het ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken met de beroemde afbeelding van Che Guevara gemaakt door Enrique Ávila en geïnspireerd door een standbeeld van Alberto Korda. Maar een reis naar Havana neemt u mee naar meer plekken dan pleinen en gebouwen. Varadero bijvoorbeeld wordt gezien als het mooiste strand ter wereld.

    Tucked away in the Province of Sancti Spíritus in the middle of the island and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988 is the Cuban village of Trinidad, your destination on this leisurely all-day excursion. With your friendly tour guide remaining on hand throughout, you’ll first board a coach and enjoy a scenic journey of about 5.5 hours to reach the picturesque village. Time to stretch your legs then follows during a walk around Trinidad, its centrally located park and a visit to Trinidad Cathedral. There will also be time for you to browse through the Museum Palacio Cantero, located in an old colonial house, for an encounter with the ancient culture of the island. Since museum browsing can be thirsty work, your next destination is the Taberna La Canchánchara for a taste of Trinidad’s most famous cocktail: the Canchánchara. Made with lemon juice, honey and Cuban rum, this delicious treat makes a perfect aperitif, since you’ll then move on to a local restaurant to enjoy a leisurely lunch. The drive back to Havana and your ship will then give you plenty of time to relax and savour wonderful island views.Please note: for MSC Opera guests, this tour is available on 03 and 04 December 2016 and on every Sunday.

      Just 97 miles due south of Key West and yet a world apart from its American neighbour, the island of Cuba was the place that the late American novelist, Ernest Hemingway, chose to make his home for 20 years from 1939 onwards. It is this literary connection that this guided half-day tour seeks to explore, beginning with a coach transfer to the author’s former residence and now museum, FincaVigia. Located only a few miles out of Havana in San Francisco de Paula, the beautiful old finca has been fully restored and provides a unique insight into how the novelist lived and worked. You will have a chance to take a look through the house open and glass windows for an insight view of the places where Hemingway lived. You’ll also get to view Havana’s Virgen del Camino monument and a chance to enjoy panoramic views of the Cojimar district, a former fishing village. A brief look at the Hemingway monument and the seafront Malecón boulevard then follows, after which a stop is scheduled at La Terraza de Cojimar for a Don Gregorio cocktail, a tasty blend of blue curaçao and maraschino liqueur, another of Hemingway’s little helpers. Splendid views of Ambos Mundos Hotel, San Gerónimo University and Plaza de la Catedral then follow as you head for the last stop: Floridita Restaurant, where not only a delicious daiquiri, but also a life-sized bronze statue of the man himself await you at the bar. Your return to the ship then brings the tour to a close.Please note: for MSC Opera guests, this tour is available only on Mondays, for MSC Armonia guests, this tour is available on 22/23/24 November 2016, on 15.03.2017 and on every Wednesday and Thursday.

          Varadero beach and town are situated in Cuba’s Matanzas Province on a narrow spit of land that stretches up like a protective arm over the Bay of CardEnas, about 2 hours by coach from the port of Havana. Your friendly tour guide will remain on hand throughout to provide assistance and information on places of interest on the way. Your journey to the beach will include a photo stop at Bacunayagua Bridge, which demarks the border between the Mayabeque and Matanzas Provinces. A drive-by look at the towns of Matanzas and Varadero then follows, after which you’ll be able to enjoy all the delights afforded by the 18-km stretch of fine white sand from a local Hotel. The idyllic natural setting and warm, Caribbean water are perfectly complemented by a delicious buffet and drinks. You’ll have about 5 hours to savour the surroundings, go swimming, stroll along the beach, listen to Cuban music or even have a go at beach games – but do take a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect you in the sun.

        Luchtigheid, zon en geschiedenis

        Varen met MSC Cruises naar het Caribisch gebied neemt u - naast andere juwelen van de regio - mee op ontdekkingsreis naar Cuba; een op-en-top vermakelijke bestemming.


        Van de vele Caribische eilanden die kunnen worden bezocht met MSC Cruises is Cuba een historische en artistieke schat om te bewonderen - vanuit zee of vanop het land. Dit prachtige eiland bevindt zich tussen de Caribische Zee, de Golf van Mexico en de Atlantische Oceaan. Het wordt gestreeld door de passaatwinden en heeft een tropisch klimaat met vochtige zomers en droge winters.
        Bij de fantastische natuurlijke inhammen bevinden zich de belangrijkste steden: Havana, Cienfuegos en Santiago de Cuba. Cuba doet denken aan de witte stranden van Varadero en Cayo Largo, kristalhelder water en weelderige vegetatie van alle tinten groen, evenals gebouwen met felle kleuren, muziek, eten en een cultuur die het Spaanse kolonialisme met de tradities van Afrikaanse slaven combineert.

        Degenen die naar Cuba komen, kunnen onmogelijk niet gecharmeerd raken van dit land. Het is niet verrassend dat Christopher Columbus ooit riep “Het mooiste land dat het menselijk oog ooit heeft gezien!” toen hij hier aankwam. En wat dacht u van de Nobelprijswinnaar Ernest Hemingway? Hij was zo gefascineerd door het eiland dat hij besloot om hier naartoe te verhuizen en de volgende twintig jaar in zijn Finca Vigia (uitkijkpost) te verblijven.
