Ports of Call & Ship Information

Fort Lauderdale, Fl

Ft. Lauderdale, United States  

Known as the “Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale has 165 miles of canals that wind through this waterfront city. With plenty of sun and sand, you’ll find the beaches inviting and only minutes from elegant shops and championship golf courses. After dark, the town offers many five-star restaurants and exciting nightclubs, all set in a lush tropical environment.

Ft. Lauderdale, United States – Attractions & Activities

People have been flocking to Fort Lauderdale’s beaches for decades. And with good reason. Fort Lauderdale Beach is a two-mile strip of beautiful beach featuring the recently renovated Promenade, which offers all sorts of bars, restaurants and shops.

  • Take a 30-minute airboat ride across the Everglades, one of the most breathtaking natural areas in America. Discover a variety of fish and birds that inhabit the area, and perhaps see the most famous Everglades inhabitant – the alligator. Enjoy Sawgrass Reptile Exhibit after your ride and take the opportunity to touch or possibly hold a small alligator. Discover the replica of a Seminole Indian village. See tropical birds, rare snakes, and even the endangered Florida panther.

  • Take a narrated drive through Port Everglades over the Intercoastal Waterway and along the famous Fort Lauderdale Beach. Explore the International Swimming Hall of Fame, Las Olas Boulevard, the Riverwalk area and more. Stop and see Esplanade Park, the crossroads of the Center for Performing Arts and the Museum of Discovery and Science. Take a 90-minute Intercoastal Waterway cruise, and hear a lively commentary from the boat’s captain on the history of the New River and Fort Lauderdale’s historic sites.

Key West, FL

Key West, Florida

Key West, a U.S. island city, is part of the Florida Keys archipelago. It’s also Florida’s southernmost point, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Famed for its pastel-hued, conch-style houses, it’s a cruise-ship stop also accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway. It’s known more for its coral reefs – destinations for diving and snorkeling – than for its beaches.

Havana, Cuba

Havana, Cuba

Cuba’s capital city truly must have been one of the finest cities in the Americas in its day. Compared with many Caribbean ports of call, whose historic structures are limited to a handful of churches and musty museums, Havana and its nod to culture and history are breathtaking. It still boasts thousands of architectural treasures, dozens of top-notch museums, gracious avenues and promenades, wonderful music, friendly people, breathtaking vistas and more.

But Havana is in terrible decay. Some areas, particularly in Old Havana, have been restored, but there are numerous areas that are crumbling. These once-graceful buildings have taken a pounding from hurricanes, sea air and neglect for nearly 50 years, without the commitment or materials to preserve and maintain them. Many buildings are missing roofs; on some, you can see doorways leading to missing balconies, and on others, walls are crumbling. The most fascinating thing is seeing these dilapidated buildings in the evening. Once darkness descends, it becomes obvious that, despite the desperate state of these dwellings, people continue to live in them.

Only a handful of cruise lines visit Havana. The U.S.-based lines are all banned from doing so. German-owned Thomson Cruises, Norwegian-owned Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines and U.K.-owned Noble Caledonia all make port stops in the city. Canada-owned Cuba Cruise, which started round-Cuba sailings in 2013, will stop weekly at Havana from December 2014 through March 2015.

The city is rich with rewards for visitors. The core of “Old Havana” or “La Habana Vieja” is a treasure trove of architectural gems. Across Havana Bay, the iconic 16th century Castillo del Morro (Morro Castle) guards the city and the harbor and provides panoramic views. The graceful and elegant avenues and mansions of “El Vedado” offer a glimpse of a wealthy past. Today, it’s also the center of the modern government at the symbolic Plaza de la Revolucion.

Cuba was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492 and was key in colonial times for its strategic location and rich agricultural base, which developed into the world’s foremost sugar industry. (Today, it’s almost extinct.) Havana itself was founded by Diego Velazquez in 1514, and, with its sheltered harbor, it prospered for centuries as a key center for trade.

Spain ruled Cuba for four centuries until the island gained its independence in 1899. In the 1900s, Cuba was mostly run by a series of leaders, who were greatly influenced by the United States. In 1959, Fidel Castro led a revolution to overthrow leader Fulgencio Batista, and a year later, Castro announced his allegiance to the Soviet Union and Communist principles. Thus, he alienated Cuba from the United States and, in the process, thousands of U.S. tourists that regularly visited the island.

The United States’ embargo on Cuba, which began in the 1960s and has been modified several times, basically prohibits U.S. citizens and U.S. companies from conducting business with Cuban interests. In 1999, U.S. President Bill Clinton modified the embargo to prohibit subsidiaries of U.S. companies from doing business in Cuba, and he also authorized the sale of certain specific products to Cuba. More recently, President Barack Obama has somewhat eased travel restrictions to Cuba for those of Cuban descent.

The island remained politically aligned and economically dependent on the Soviet Union until the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe. Following difficult economic times in the early 1990s (known as the “Periodo Especial”), Castro’s regime began encouraging foreign investment, resulting in increased tourism — predominantly from Canada and Europe. This marked the beginning of capitalism and renewed opportunity for the Cuban people. Cuba now attracts more than two million visitors each year.

In 2008, because of Castro’s failing health, his brother Raul Castro was named president. Raul Castro has introduced changes to the island, such as allowing ownership of cellphones, buying and selling property and private enterprise, most notably in the form of paladars, or private restaurants.

There is much speculation that the United States will further ease travel restrictions to the island, but there is little indication this will happen in the near future. If cruise travel to Cuba is allowed on U.S.-owned lines, it will no doubt result in great interest from both the cruise lines and the traveling public. With its convenient location, just 90 miles from South Florida, Cuba is an ideal port of call for lines sailing Caribbean itineraries.

For now, those who do get to take a cruise that calls in Havana are better off leaving the beaches and sunbathing to other ports and spending their time visiting the many sites and museums that are easily accessible from the cruise port.

Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas

Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Sea

It’s time to ditch ordinary vacations — and discover extraordinary in paradise. Majesty of the Seas® offers more splashes, more excitement, and more family fun to fuel your weekend. All while setting sail to your own exclusive island, CocoCay®. So you can enjoy endless thrills onboard — and ashore, with adventures for all ages. Aren’t you due for a quick escape?

WITH TWO BARS, THE POOL DECK IS NEVER DRY
Enjoy the coolest spots under the sun. Chill at the pool deck and enjoy tasty sips from the Pool Bar or Sand Bar, both are full-service and perfectly positioned on the upper level of the pool deck, serving beers, non-alcoholic beverages and delicious mixed drinks.

SMALL HANDS ON DECK
When the kids are happy, parents are happy. And our award-winning Adventure Ocean® Youth Program is designed with that in mind. Tiny travelers ages 3-5 will have an education blast in the Aquanauts group. The Explorers program keeps 6-8 year olds entertained with activities like themed parties and more. And learning is a thrillfest for 9-11 year olds in the Voyagers group.

KNOCK KNOCK, IT’S NOSHES
If you’re craving convenience, pick up the phone and dial up delicious in-room dining any time— day or night. Enjoy breakfast in bed with a fresh omelet or a steaming stack of pancakes. Or a delectable dinner in the comfort of your stateroom after a long day of adventure onboard and ashore. You can treat your taste buds without having to set foot outside your door. Fees may apply, but continental breakfast, when served, is always complimentary.

SHAKE IT LIKE A CAIPIRINHA
Whether it’s after dinner or after party, nighttime sizzles at Boleros, a Latin-themed club and hot spot serving Cuban mojitos, Brazilian capirinhas, or your favorite classic cocktails. A live six-piece band and singer belt out the Latin rhythms that get you moving, because it’s all about the salsa, cumbia, merengue and samba. So get on the floor and dance.

IMPORTANT NOTES TO ALL ATTENDEES: 

A passport book will be required for all guests sailing to Cuba with us. Guest passport books must be valid for six months after their travel date to Cuba. Unlike other ports of call, passport cards, birth certificates, and drivers’ license are NOT sufficient for boarding the ship to Cuba (whether or not you intend to get off the ship).

Guests are also required to have a visa to travel to Cuba, however Royal Caribbean will facilitate this for our guests at a cost of $75 per person. This fee will be added to your onboard account on Day 1 of the cruise. Each guest will receive their Visa during embarkation and will be responsible for providing their Visa to the Cuban authorities upon arrival in Cuba. If a guest loses their Visa, they will be able to purchase a new Visa onboard at an additional cost of $75. Some guests will be required to have an A-1 Visa to visit Cuba.

It is important that the name on your reservation be exactly as it is stated on your passport book. If your name has changed since your document was issued (e.g., marriage or divorce), it is required that you update the document with the new name or provide an official supporting document (e.g., a state, county or province issued marriage license, divorce decree or legal name change document) of the name change. All documents must be the original or a notarized copy. Otherwise, it may result in delay or possible denial of boarding.

Additionally, guests with citizenship in the following countries do NOT require any visa to visit Cuba: 

  • Benin • Bosnia and Herzegovina • Macedonia • Malaysia • Montenegro • Serbia • Grenada • St. Vincent and the Grenadines • Antigua and Barbuda • Belarus • Mongolia • Russia • St. Kitts and Nevis • St. Lucia • Singapore • Barbados • Donimica • Nimibia

For your convenience, Royal Caribbean has a page on their website full of information about traveling to Cuba, with links to a travel documents guide, a travel checklist, and top tips for traveling to Cuba.

All conferees, their families, and guests must book their cruise within the Smiles at Sea group through at 954-420-9133 or by registering online. This ensures our company can provide conference services and complimentary social amenities to all meeting participants and their guests. Thank you for your cooperation.
