December 9, 2016 – American travelers have long imagined what it would be like to salsa, mambo and rumba the night away in Havana’s many clubs or sit down for an authentic Ropa Vieja (shredded beef) and Moros y Cristianos (rice and beans). The tide has turned and Azamara Club Cruises has announced its first voyage to Havana, Cuba. It is also significant since it will be an overnight stay, which Azamara is noted for doing on their cruises.
