With calls on the shores of Portugal and North Africa, and with Atlantic crossings bookended by calls in Cape Verde and the Azores, the cruise features eight contrasting, vibrant Caribbean isles, including endlessly fascinating Cuba, where you’ll stay overnight in Spanish colonial treasure-chest Havana.
