Food Onboard - Canadian

Food is of vital importance to the quality of the experience and Cuba Cruise has gone to great lengths to offer something no other Cuban vacation can offer. Much of the cuisine onboard will be sourced and fresh from Canada - weekly! The menu will be a decidedly Canadian/Continental affair with enough of a Cuban influence to remind everyone that they are on holiday.

Canadian Beer & Beef Most importantly to some of our passengers - world famous Canadian beer will be available in all beverage packages and Canadian beef will be on the menu.
