Cuba Cruise Secures Transat Flights


Cuba Cruise is launching its second season with a holiday package that combines convenient charter flights, airport transfers and seven-night circumnavigation cruise, available direct from the operator.

According to officials, the hassle-free “Sky-to-Sea” package rivals any Cuban resort stay, providing intrepid travellers the opportunity to fly direct to Havana, cruise the Caribbean, and effortlessly explore Cuba’s vibrant cities, colonial villages, rolling countryside and world famous beaches – all in one seamless vacation.

“We’re proud to offer an exclusive and immersive way to experience Cuba like never before,” says Dugald Wells, Cuba Cruise president. “With a successful launch year behind us, we’re continuing the momentum and creating superior options to bring our stand-out niche product to the forefront. Our new Sky-to-Sea package invites agents and tour operators to easily book their clients a total vacation package that is experiential in nature, with only few clicks of a button, direct from our web site.”

Cuba Cruise secured season-long Air Transat Boeing B737-800 new generation charter flights from Toronto’s Pearson International direct to José Martí International Airport in Havana, departing every Monday beginning Dec. 22.

Once landing in Cuba, guests are transferred directly to the Cristal ship docked in Old Havana for check-in (approximately 25 minutes travel time). The return airport transfer and charter flight from Havana to Toronto are also included in the travel package.

Sky-to-Sea Early Bird rates start at $721 (plus taxes and port dues), if booked by Sept. 30. The package includes return charter flights, airport transfers, onboard meals, snacks and entertainment featuring star performers from Cuba and Canada. Regular Sky-to-Sea package rates start at $852.

Packages will be available to book beginning Sept. 8. Cuba Cruise’s next season begins Dec. 19 through to March 30, 2015, departing every Monday from Havana and every Friday from Montego Bay, Jamaica.
