7th June, 2016 Celestyal Cruises is pleased to announce its newest port of call Punta Frances for the upcoming 2016-2017 Caribbean season. Chosen for its authentic vibe, impeccable beachfront, and crystalline waters coloured every shade of blue, Punta Frances will replace Maria La Gorda on Celestyal Cruises’ all-inclusive seven-day Cuba itinerary. Located on the secluded Isla de la Juventud (Isle of Youth), the largest of over three hundred lush islets that make up Cuba’s Archipelago de los Canarreos, Punta Frances is an idyllic destination for swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling.

The revised itinerary offers guests the opportunity to enjoy an untouched beach paradise that perfectly complements Celestyal Cruises’ authentic Cuba experience. Guests will travel to the western tip of the island by tender boat where they will discover the natural splendours of Punta Frances National Marine Park. The protected area is abundant with a multitude of bird species, gardens of sponges and corals, and diverse sea life. With virtually no hotels in sight, the beach visit will feel like the ultimate private island experience for guests of Celestyal Cruises.
