11 Night Cruise sailing from Cienfuegos to Havana aboard Star Flyer.
They are the stars of the sea. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are as fleet as the wind and as graceful as swans.
These are true clipper ships reflecting their proud heritage in every inch of their polished brass and gleaming brightwork. Step aboard these unique vessels and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are modern cruise ships in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are both 360 feet long and each carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort.
Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper or Star Flyer. Each ship offer spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that these ships offer more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.
The décor of Star Clipper and Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.
Highlights of this cruise:
When you gaze at the lovely neo-classical homes and elegant public buildings lining the Prado, Cienfuegos mile-long main boulevard, you can see the Empire origins of this gracious city on the Bahia de Cienfuegos. Founded in 1819 by French immigrants, Cienfuegos is a World Heritage Site which, because of the relative isolation of Cuba, has escaped the ravages of many modern cities. Architectural highlights of the city and nearby Punta Gorda include the fanciful Palacio de Valle, the Jagua Fortress, the luxuriant Jardin Botanico, the Cathedral and the Victorian-era yacht club.
It's amazing to realize that this once unknown small Caribbean island is now the center of once of the world's largest banking economies, the home of uncounted billions in offshore assets. Tax-free, duty-free and largely restriction-free, Grand Cayman is a magnet for money. Shopping is a full-time occupation here. But there is another side to Grand Cayman, where endless beaches, quiet lagoons and laid-back beach bars beckon. Grand Cayman was the first island to offer close encounters with tame sting-rays, and it is also the home of the famous Atlantis submarine tour.
With 28 kilometers of white sand beach, only 3 Kilometers wide and containing just a few small resorts, Cayo Largo recalls the Caribbean that used to be. The 2nd largest island of the Canarreos Archipelago is a marine wildlife sanctuary for many species. You’ll find turtle kraals where palm-sized hatchlings are raised to adult size and released to the sea, visit an island where iguanas roam freely and then bask in a natural swimming pool of the ocean, surrounded by dunes of flour-fine sand.
Oddly enough, there are both black sand and white sand beaches on Isla de la Juventud (once named Isle of Pines, because of the lumber that is harvested here). Punta Francis’ beach is the most famous, especially for diving and snorkeling. Isla de la Juventud was at one time a favorite haven for pirates and adventurers - Francis Drake, John Hawkins and Henry Morgan found refuge on these shores - prompting Robert Louis Stevenson to base his Treasure Island here. There are fascinating caves containing over 200 ancient Indian pictographs. You can also visit the skeletal remains of a huge 3-domed, semi-circular prison, now abandoned, where Fidel Castro was held before the revolution.
