Cuba Educational Travel congratulates Virgin Voyages on its announcement to begin offering cruises to Cuba. Virgin’s decision to prioritize Cuba as its first destination highlights the excitement of world travelers in visiting the Caribbean destination, known for its rich culture and history, and the warmth of its people.
“Virgin Voyages will service a new demographic of travelers to Cuba, which will greatly benefit the Cuban economy and the Cuban people,” said Collin Laverty, President of Cuba Educational Travel. “The Virgin brand is a perfect match for the incredible music, art and dance that Cuba offers. Virgin Voyages passengers are in for a real treat.”
The state of art ship and the brand’s focus on higher-end travelers will differentiate it from cruise lines currently offering Cuba. It will also mean higher earnings for Cuban companies and more money in the pockets of the Cuban people. Moreover, Virgin’s focus on culture will highlight the incredible talent of Cuban artists, incorporating them in on-ship experiences and ground excursions.
