A QUILTING CRUISE to CUBA and Beyond with

Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Liza Prior Lucy

 February 26 - March 4, 2020

~Space is Limited - this group will sell out quickly~

Imagine the vivid colors of Cuba and the Caribbean, then imagine them with the Glorious Color Masters, Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Liza Prior Lucy.  Your 7 day inspirational cruise journey will not only be filled with incredible and enriching sights and sounds but it will be highlighted with the magic and creative inspiration of classes taught by these world class instructors.

There is no place like Cuba, and what a wonderful way to experience it for yourself, with Kaffe, Brandon and Liza. 

On our amazing voyage, we will see the 1950s-era American cars speed alongside miles of golden beaches, and enjoy the colonial mansions and the cobblestone streets in the city of Havana where it feels as if it has been frozen in time. In addition to Cuba, our other Caribbean Island visits to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands will provide amazing inspiration as well as rare and flamboyant wildlife and tropical vistas that will spark your artistic imagination and provide life long memories.

Our colorful journey on Holland America's Veendam, includes both the ports of Havana and Cienfuegos, Cuba; Ocho Rios, Jamaica  and Georgetown, Cayman Islands.  Our ports will share the richness of the culture and rhythms of these amazing islands.

Holland America offers onboard activities for every age and interest.  Consider bringing the entire family along on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
