Cruise ship Princess Danae docks in Santiago de Cuba

Posted December 29, 2004 by publisher in Cuba Travel.

The cruise ship Princess Danae, carrying 500 passengers, docked in the port of Santiago de Cuba, in the eastern part of the island, during the second half of December.

Santiago de Cuba was chosen as a port of call during the cruise ship’s Caribbean voyage, due to the city’s historic, cultural, patrimonial and tourist attractions.

The boat was welcomed with folkloric dances and the catchy rhythm of Los Hoyos conga, which is characterized by unique beats and dances.

During the ship’s stopover, more than 300 passengers enjoyed excursions to the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery, Cespedes Park, the Cuban Historic Ambience Museum, and the Pepe Sánchez Trova House.

Other optional excursions included the Baconao-Gran Piedra Park and the town of El Cobre, which holds the Sanctuary of the Lady of Charity and one of oldest copper mines in the Americas.
