Cuba expects increased cruise arrivals
Published on December 24, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- The number of cruise ships calling at Cuban ports is expected to surpass the figure reported in previous years, said an executive in the sector.

Norberto Perez, general director of the Aries Transport Company, in charge of marketing cruise operations in Cuba, told reporters that a new company named Cuba Cruises will manage arrivals here of cruise ships, such as Canada’s Louis Cristal, which called at the south-central harbour of Cienfuegos on Saturday.

Perez said that ten cruise ships will call at Cuban ports during the current high tourist season, including the luxurious Europa, the Albatross and the Thompson Dreams, which is the largest of all, with a capacity of 785 passengers. The Thompson Dreams visited Havana harbour on December 6.

This international tourism sector is affected in Cuba by the US economic, commercial and financial embargo of Cuba, which bans American citizens from visiting the island, the executive said.
