Punta Francés will replace Maria La Gorda on Celestyal Cruises’ seven-day Cuba itinerary for the November 2016 through 2017 period.

Located on the secluded Isla de la Juventud (Isle of Youth), Punta Francés offers nearly two miles of sugary white sand beaches and crystalline seas where travelers can discover Punta Francés National Marine Park. This protected area offers a multitude of bird species, gardens of sponges and corals and vast sea life.

Passengers can embark the all-inclusive Cuba cruise at Havana or Montego Bay (Jamaica).

The schedule has the ship arriving in Havana at 9:30 a.m. Monday and sailing at 5 p.m. Tuesday, spending Wednesday at Punta Francés from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday at Cienfuegos from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday at Montego Bay from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday at Santiago de Cuba from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
