Our First Day in Colonial Trinidad

Like Cienfuegos, the handsome Colonial-era town of Trinidad is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main square is a veritable living museum, surrounded by historic buildings that reflect Neoclassical, Moorish and Spanish Baroque influences. Founded in the 16th century, Trinidad’s many architectural landmarks include the historic Palacio Brunet and the Palacio Cantero, built with wealth from the region’s lucrative sugar trade. With a full day to explore ashore, a great place to begin our guided sightseeing is the Museum of Architecture, where you’ll learn not just about the town’s history but also the background behind its UNESCO designation and ongoing preservation efforts. Our elegant ship will be docked here overnight, giving us another opportunity to dine ashore and experience not just island-cuisine but its vibrant street life. Meals B+L+D


Another Day in Trinidad

With its picturesque setting against the Escambray Mountains that rise to the north of town, we’ll enjoy a second day of guided exploration in this beguiling city. In addition to its architectural wealth, Trinidad like so many Cuban cities boasts a lively cultural scene, which we’ll experience today with more people-to-people activities. The Ballet Folklórico de Trinidad is just one such group that we might spend time with today. Early this evening, the mv Victory I will set sail again on a southeasterly course toward Santiago de Cuba. Meals B+L+D

From the unique white dress you’ll see worn by Santeria initiates throughout the city to the region’s distinctive styles of music and dance, Santiago de Cuba has a very strong Afro-Cuban spirit. This morning, you’ll learn more about this unique heritage as we begin two full days of guided sightseeing and people-to-people cultural activities. One highlight of this first day is sure to be the Plaza Delores. Once a bustling marketplace, this pleasant and shady town square is home to popular restaurants and cafes – making it a great place to feel the lively rhythms of the city. Meals B+L+D


Santiago de Cuba + San Pedro de la Roca

Our second day of sightseeing and people-to-people activities in this vibrant town will include an expertly guided tour of San Pedro de la Roca. Built by the Spanish in the 17th century, this massive stone fortress is spectacularly set on a rocky promontory overlooking Santiago de Cuba Bay. Now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the best examples of Colonial military architecture in the Americas and reflects Italian and Renaissance design principles. As our ship will be docked here in Santiago de Cuba until 10:00 pm, our onboard meals will be enhanced with specially arranged shoreside dining experiences to sample more of the island’s fine cuisine and family-owned paladares.
