The Cuban port of Santiago de Cuba is looking for a big cruise season this year, according to officials.
Santiago de Cuba, one of Cuba’s tourism centers, reports that it is expecting a busy cruise year, with 24 berths planned from now until April.
The German cruise ship Amadea anchored this week in the port of Santiago de Cuba to kick off the start of the season.
The vessel holds a capacity for 600 passengers, the majority of which are German tourists, who arrived to “excellent weather” in the city.
They were received into Santiago de Cuba with music and dancing, and will take part in a program of tours of its historic center and other cultural sites, arranged by the travel agency Cubatur.
As they arrive on the coast, travelers will find the city’s newest attractions – a promenade and a craft brewery – which were completed last July.
