Cuba to witness good cruiseCuba is expected to witness a good cruise season during the coming months, Viajes Cuba Business Group President Jose Manuel Bisbe predicted.

 

Bisbe participated in the welcoming ceremony of the tourists that arrived on the first cruise of the ship Marina recently, property of the Norwegian company Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. With headquarters in Florida, the United States, and has planned nine more trips during 2017.

 

He said the operations of this kind would increase and also cover the ports of Cienfuegos, in the central region of the country and the eastern port of Santiago de Cuba.

 

The official stated that such expansion was supported by the attractions in the island, such as culture and the high security level.

 
Bisbe said 88,000 tourists registered for cruises last year and 55,000 have registered so far this year. The figures exceed previous periods, but are way below the country’s potential for this kind of option, the source said.
