Cuba and the treasured Caribbean expedition cruise - 5 Oct 2017

15 days from £6193pp

Private Journey

You board Silversea’s Silver Explorer in Nassau, Bahamas, and then head straight for Cuba, the largest island in the sparkling Caribbean Sea.  Here, the coast shelters atmospheric colonial cities where Spanish and French architecture has survived:  some buildings are just crumbling façades but others are sufficiently preserved to recall the affluent era of European empires.  

By travelling to these towns by ship, you can view from the sea the beautiful coastline between them, indented with rocky bays and sugar-white beaches. Sail on to drop anchor at Cartagena, perhaps the most romantic of all the continent’s cities and historically a major port on Colombia’s northern coast.

Wrap up the voyage at the San Blas Islands of Panama, where the Kuna indians have maintained a unique traditional lifestyle.  Disembark in Colon at the Pacific end of the Panama Canal and spend a couple of nights in the colonial quarter of Panama’s vibrant capital, with a wildlife spotting tour next to the canal.
