Guilford, CT, Aug. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pearl Seas Cruises will run four cruises in November and December of this year and a full schedule is planned for 2018. Starting this fall, the cruise line will begin offering an 11-night cruise with an additional stop in Casilda. The new port will offer more opportunities for cultural exchange with the Cuban people. Pearl Seas is one of only a few cruise lines approved by the United States and Cuban governments to sail to Cuba. The cruises will comply with all the latest U.S. and Cuban regulations.

Pearl Seas will continue to offer the most immersive Cuban itinerary with a circumnavigation of the island, including stops in Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, El Cobre, and Santiago de Cuba.

As part of this people-to-people cultural exchange, guests of Pearl Seas Cruises will engage with local musicians, historians, and artists. Guests will also have the unique opportunity to explore Havana in a classic American car, enjoy a pottery demonstration in Trinidad, and experience a guided excursion in Cojimar, the fishing village that inspired Ernest Hemingway’s famous novel The Old Man and the Sea.

With a capacity of only 210 passengers, the Pearl Mist offers programs to small groups throughout its itinerary. “The small ship makes for a very personalized and all-inclusive experience of Cuba,” says Timothy Beebe, Vice President of Pearl Seas Cruises. “Our local experts on this people-to-people exchange guide each exploration and allow guests the opportunity to experience Cuban culture firsthand.”

Cruises aboard the Pearl Mist will leave Fort Lauderdale on November 10, 20, 30, and December 12.  For guests’ convenience, Pearl Seas will also offer a complimentary pre-cruise package and transportation to the ship on all 2017 fall Cuba sailings.
