11 Day Holland America Cruise

March 17-28, 2018

with teachers

Stevii Graves - Laura Heine - Liza Prior Lucy

An amazing opportunity for an 11 day Caribbean cruise with an opportunity to see the real Cuba, before their amazing history, infrastructure and culture are further influenced by the outside world.  Now, with the US/Cuban agreement opening Cuba's borders to travelers from the USA, we are offering a historic opportunity to help build new bridges to this rich and vibrant culture.  During our cruise, in addition to our onboard quilting classes and activities, while in Cuba, we will be enjoy the the world of artists, musicians, students,  and others who make up the fabric of Cuban society. In our Caribbean ports we will have the opportunity to enjoy what makes this part of the world so unique and special.

In addition to our two ports in Cuba, Havana and Cienfuegos, we will be visiting Montego Bay, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico; Key West, Florida and Grand Cayman.  A quilt cruise is a wonderful way to make new friends and enjoy the journey as we dive into new territory with others who share our common interest of quilts and textiles.

Non-quilting guests frequently join our groups as everyone is welcome.   Consider bringing the family as there is something onboard for all to enjoy.

All guests (including children) will be required by the U.S. Government to complete a travel affidavit identifying their approved category of travel. This must be completed prior to boarding the vessel.

All guests are required to obtain a visa in order to enter Cuba. The type of visa that a guest will need will depend on certain factors, including the reason for travel to Cuba. Most guests will be able to enter Cuba utilizing a “Tarjeta Turistica” (or “tourist card”) visa. Guests will purchase the “Tarjeta Turistica” from Holland America at a cost of $75 per person. This fee will be added to your onboard account. Holland America will distribute this visa during embarkation and guests 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. Guests who were born in Cuba or are traveling for specific reasons, such as journalists, will need to obtain non-tourist card visas from the Cuban consulate or a visa service


Currently, the cost of a VISA is $75 and will be added to your final payment.  If the fee increases, we reserve the right to charge you the difference in price before sailing regardless of whether your cruise is paid in full.
