A nice trip with modern multipurpose ships to Cuba with very long berthing times in Mariel, so you have time for sightseeing.

In Cuba the new container port Mariel is called (about 40 km from Havana).

There will be 2 identical ships. One of the ships has only the single cabin owner, the other one has 3 single cabins.

One way trips to Halifax are not bookable.

Age limit 75 years, no exceptions.

In Rotterdam, we recommend a shuttle service to take passengers to the ship (fee applies).

The corona rules of the shipping company are: passengers are carried, who are vaccinated 2x against Covid-19 and present a rapid antigen test, which is not older than 24 h at the time of boarding.

Berthing times about 6 hours – 6 days
