Hemingway first arrived in Cuba on a cruise ship sailing from Paris to Key West in 1928. The brief stop left such a lasting impression that the writer moved to Havana in 1939 and stayed until 1960. The long-anticipated opening of Cuba to American travelers now offers the opportunity to explore several of Hemingway’s fabled island stomping grounds, several of which I’ve had the chance to explore during the spring aboard Oceania Cruises.

In my many interesting conversations with fellow travelers at sea, I’m often asked about my favorite destinations. High on the list is the unique granitic archipelago of the Seychelles.

If you play in a bridge club or cruise ship game you would most likely be pleasantly surprised to see a really young player come to the game. Well, you should get ready for more pleasant surprises.

Having just returned last week from our 14th Oceania Club Reunion Cruise in the Mediterranean, I’ve been reflecting on what a special voyage it was. I had the pleasure of co-hosting the sailing with our Senior Vice President, Nikki F. Upshaw and we both had a fantastic time meeting so many guests and enjoying explorations in this spectacular part of the world. From celebratory dinners at Toscana and La Reserve by Wine Spectator to cliff-side cafes in Santorini and floating in the Dead Sea, what I know will stay with me in the months to come is the feeling of camaraderie and friendship that you felt everywhere on this voyage.
