What:
SinglesCruise.com has joined with Fathom to offer its first solo traveler-focused cruise to Cuba. The seven-night sailing onboard Fathom’s Adonia — which will depart June 25 from Miami — includes cultural exchange-focused shore excursions in Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba as well as the exclusive events and activities onboard all SinglesCruise.com cruises.

Why It Matters:
According to a recent Travel Leaders Group survey on luxury travel, Cuba is considered the top up-and-coming luxury travel destination — so the forthcoming SinglesCruise.com sailing is a great new way for agents to sell this highly desirable travel experience to clients traveling solo. In addition to immersion in Cuba’s culture, music and food, clients will also be able to join like-minded single travelers and enjoy SinglesCruise.com’s signature onboard extras, such as parties, theme nights and “speed meeting.”

Fast Facts:
- According to a recent Travel Leaders Group survey on luxury travel, Cuba is considered the top up-and-coming luxury travel destination.

- The forthcoming sailing will include three and a half days of shore excursions in the Cuban port cities of Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. Time spent in Cuba will be a cultural-exchange experience.

- The cruise includes two days in Cuba’s capital of Havana, where guests will visit historic castles, fortresses, cathedrals, mansions, art galleries, tropical cabarets and more. In Cienfuegos, they will learn about the area, recognized as the center of Cuba’s sugar, tobacco and coffee trades. In Santiago de Cuba, passengers will visit historical sites and experience the distinctly Caribbean spirit of the city.

What They Are Saying:
“We are extremely thrilled to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to SinglesCruise.com guests,” said Sharon Concepcion, vice president of leisure operations for SinglesCruise.com. “This trip is a cultural immersion adventure — a chance for participants to really get to know the people and the culture, and it’s a way to bring Americans and Cubans closer together. In addition to the immensely appealing charm of the people, culture, music and food of Cuba, this cruise will allow us to do what we do best. That’s offering opportunities for like-minded, single travelers to see the world together and enjoy the exclusive extras we provide on each of our cruises.”
