0800 hrs. We depart Havana and head South East through the Sugar Cane and Citrus plantations towards the UNESCO preserved Zapata National Park where the first stop will be at Guama.

Guama is a replica village of Cuba’s earliest settlers the Taino Indians who lived on the island in the 1100s, the original settlers on the island. Located on a string of small islands and reached by an exhilarating boat ride through the mangroves, there are also a number of life size sculptures depicting the life of these early settlers. A crocodile sanctuary is also located here and you can enter the sanctuary to see the reptiles basking in the sun.

Continuing the journey into the Zapata National Park we reach the Bay of Pigs the site of the failed CIA backed invasion of Cuba that was repelled by Fidel and Che and their revolutionaries. We will briefly visit the museum to gain an insight into one of the major world events from the 1960s and an important date in Cuba’s revolutionary history.

After a relaxing lunch in the area we will travel along the South Coast as the afternoon progresses and stop at a wonderful oasis! The Cueva De Los Peces is a natural salt water pool set in a beautiful and tranquil woodland location. Take an afternoon cooling swim in the waters and spot the huge variety of tropical fish or take a cocktail or a cool beer and sit and enjoy the sun for a while.

From the pool the drive onwards to Cienfuegos is not too long and on arrival you will be dropped at Cienfuegos Harbour for the start of your exciting Star Flyer Cruise!

Price Includes: Transport as required with driver/ guide, entrance to Guama and boat ride to the replica village, entrance to the Crocodile Sanctuary, three course lunch in the Playa Larga area with one drink included (water, beer, soft drink, rum based drink), entrance to Cueva De Los Peces.

Private Sightseeing Transfer: by booking the tour on a private basis you have the option to stay longer at the sights along the way or indeed add some extra visits if you wish.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht.

Step aboard these unique vessels and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are both 360 feet long and each carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Star Clipper and Star Flyer offer spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you will find that there is more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships. The décor of Star Clipper and Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.

All Star Clippers ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, our convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officers and crew.

When you rise, help yourself to a continental breakfast with croissants, toasted English muffins or sweet Danish pastries. Or savor a full breakfast with fresh tropical fruits and crisp bacon, grilled sausage, smoked salmon and omelettes cooked to order in the dining room. At lunch, a marvelous buffet of seafood, salads and grilled favorites awaits your pleasure. If the day includes a stop at one of the paradisiacal islands, you might also be treated to a festive outdoor barbecue on shore.

When evening comes, the elegantly appointed dining room featuring a splendid collection of paintings of sailing ships becomes the setting for the chef’s finest culinary presentations, designed to please the eye and the palate. All complemented by equally fine wines. Service is friendly and gracious, befitting a sophisticated restaurant with no seating preferences. You are free to dine when and with whomever you wish – including officers, who join guests in the dining room most nights. The dress code? No need for formal gowns and black tie, casual elegance is the order of the day and each night.
