What you should know before embarking

Navigating the Caribbean Sea is one of the most pleasurable and incomparable experiences with any other place in the world. But, before shipping, you must take into account some factors so that the trip does not become a headache. In this short list, we will tell you the essential things you must have when embarking the cruise.

  1. Passport or identification. This should never be missed when leaving on a trip. We always recommend bringing another document that identifies you in case of losing your passport during the trip.
  2. Boarding Pass documents. Although many cruise companies allow the check-in online, others that recommend you to do this in person. It is always good to make sure what the company's policy is at this point.
  3. Cash and credit cards. Cash or credit cards are always important. Cruises include food and drinks, but not souvenirs. Also, they will dock in ports where you can make purchases.
  4. Luggage tagged. Suitcases should usually have the labels that say the ship, your name, cabin number, and a serial number. You need this to keep track of everything that is uploaded to the ship.
  5. Hand luggage. As when you travel by plane you must have a carry-on baggage with your personal items. From jewelry to toiletries. You can include clothes, shoes, and everything necessary in case of any eventuality.

When boarding a cruise ship, in general, the staff that is part of the crew gives you a program of activities. This helps to inform about all the events that will take place on the ship during the trip. It is necessary that you read that and ask if you have any doubts at the moment.

In the same way, there are activities that you can do when you arrive at the ports. These can be guided by the staff of the cruise company or you can do them independently. It is a good way to know the different places where they arrive.

Most important ports in Cuba

On the Caribbean island, there are several important ports that are often used by large vessels.

  • Cienfuegos terminal. A port visited by most tourists is the city of Cienfuegos. Although it is in constant restoration, it has many amenities for the tourist. This without leaving aside all the benefits offered by the city itself. Cienfuegos is preferred by tourists over others with more relevance. You can arrive there and stay in Casas particulares in Cienfuegos.
  • Sierra Maestra Terminal. It is located in the Bay of Havana, in the historic center of the Cuban capital located exactly opposite to the San Francisco Square. This was known as the Loading Dock of Havana. Although currently occupies other functions as offices of the General Customs of the Republic, migration and of course as the main dock for cruise ships.
  • Punta Francés Terminal. This port is used by most shipping companies in the best time to travel to Cuba. It is located on the Juventud island and is one of the favorite tourist destinations both for Cubans and tourists.

The natural monuments of this island are its main attraction and that is why we recommend you to visit it. Either as part of a cruise route or by simple private tourism.
