Cuba-Key West Cruise HOP

February 12 - February 17

Location: Cuba – Key West Cruise

Escapees RV Club is excited to offer this historical opportunity to travel, again, to Cuba, since there was such an overwhelming response and attendance last year!

Join us, February 12, 2019, sailing from Fort Lauderdale to Cuba and Key West, for this fabulous 5-day round trip, aboard the Royal Caribbean’s beautiful ship Majesty of the Seas.

You can enjoy the rich, vibrant culture of Cuba and learn about their fascinating history, literature and architecture. The food is incredible and you will experience the warm embrace of the vibrant Cuban people.

After a day visiting in Havana, you will have the option of a relaxing evening onboard the ship or experiencing a night in Havana at one of the city’s tropical Cabarets, enjoying fabulous performances by Cuba’s best rumba dancers and musicians. You may even decide to arrive at the Cabaret in a classic American car! Don’t forget about purchasing some traditional Cuban rum and a few of those famous Cuban cigars.

Booking your cabin early – Recall dates:

Escapees can only hold the group space for a limited time before the cruise line recalls our unassigned cabins. After the recall date, Escapees may not be able to secure a cabin and if we can, it will not be at the rates listed here.

This cruise to Cuba will sell out quickly; remember this is a smaller ship, so it’s very critical that you book early, even if the cruise is scheduled for NEXT YEAR!

Again, once the recall dates have passed, it will be harder to get a cabin on this cruse.
