The recent travel ban has restricted cruise lines from sailing to Cuba, leaving many travelers with canceled vacation plans. As travelers seek alternatives to their bucket list Cuba trips, SmartCruiser.com – the internet cruise division of Smart Travel Group and the sister brand to OASIS Travel Network – is offering ready-to-book itineraries that feature authentic Latin experiences in a tropical paradise.
Globetrotters looking for scenic waterfalls and sweeping mountain views should consider Puerto Rico itineraries now available aboard Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas and Carnival Cruises’ Carnival Fascination. Rincón is one of Puerto Rico’s most popular beaches, featuring diving and whale-watching attractions, making it the perfect spot for sunbathing and surfing. San Juan, Puerto Rico’s capital and largest city, is another ideal tourist destination that takes travelers back in time with Spanish colonial architecture, museums, and the world’s largest historic fort, Castillo San Cristóbal. Puerto Rico truly has something for every traveler, offering just the right balance of relaxation and adventure.
Travelers in need of a margarita and the perfect tan will enjoy select itineraries to Mexico aboard Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Infinity and Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl. Mexico’s clear waters combined with its brilliant sunset views is the perfect recipe for a tranquilizing beach getaway. One of the country’s most popular attractions is Chichen Itza, an ancient city that gives visitors an inside-look into historic Mayan culture. Another must-do activity is to visit Acuario Inbursa, which is Mexico’s largest aquarium, where guests can experience sunken ships and a variety of marine life.
Voyagers affected by the travel ban and looking to book an alternative getaway should visit SmartCruiser.com. The booking site is an all-inclusive platform for planning cruise vacations that features a wealth of information available from virtually every cruise line and brand with exclusive offers added weekly.
