Car on beach in Havana, Cuba

Holland America Lines has returned to Cuba! Choose from 10-night and longer, round-trip sailings from Fort Lauderdale aboard the ms Veendam.

Cuba sailings include a stop in Cienfuegos, a port city on Cuba’s southern coast. Cienfuegos has played an important role in Cuba’s history since it was founded in 1819, when the island was still Spanish territory. Today it remains one of the country’s important commercial centers—a transit point for coffee, sugarcane and tobacco. It has both welcomed and resisted incursions from various people and interests over the past two centuries. Both as the heart of Cuba’s sugar industry and as the birthplace of famous Cubans past and present, such as singer Benny Moré and baseball stars José Abreu and Yasiel Puig, the city looms large in Cuban consciousness, but it isn’t always on visitors’ itineraries, which is a shame. Cienfuegos boasts numerous attractions that give a fuller, more complex view of Cuban life, culture and history. The old center of Cienfuegos, with its many stately neoclassical buildings, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005.

When you return to the ms Veendam at the end of each memorable day, relax in elegant comfort as you continue your Cuban immersion. Whether you’re sipping a refreshing mojito on your suite’s private verandah, savoring gorgeous Cienfuegos Bay from the Panorama deck or posing for selfies with your new Cuban friends, a Holland America cruise is a delightful way to experience Cuba.
