on this particular morning our plan was simple…. leave ship, get taxi to the fictional Honoré. In reality this is a pretty village called Deshaies on the north coast of Basse-Terre a forty kilometre, one hour drive to the north coast of the island….
I am going to preface this Havana Port Profile with an explanation and a warning. Whilst Cuba is an amazing place to visit, unfortunately it was listed as a ” State Sponsor of Terrorism” by President Trump as he left office in 2021. This means that tourists from the USA are NOT able to visit and no American cruise lines visit the port. However three European companies (Marella, Ambassador and Fred Olsen) have added Cuba on itineraries from January 2023 onwards so we thought that a bit of information might be useful to those passengers. The main point to consider if you are booking a cruise to Cuba is that you should keep up to date with the latest situation in relation to subsequent ESTA applications to the United States.
