While surfing the internet, I came across this interesting overview of cruising in Cuba — The land of cigars, rum & Castro describing a trip taken by Don and Agnes Reed. Their cruise took them from Marathon, Florida to Havana, Cuba then on to the southern coast of Cuba. Here’s a summary of their experience extracted from the online article
“I think we were in the wrong part of Cuba in the wrong months. Our experience would have been much better if we had spoken some Spanish. There are other nice cruising grounds in other countries. For me, our limited Cuban experience was interesting but stressful.”
There’s good insight here for those considering a trip to Cuba some time in the near future.
