All cabins on all ships of the Jardines Avalon Fleet feature individually controlled AC, storage space, and private en-suite bathrooms.

Cuisine aboard Jardines Avalon Charter vessels includes Cuban food, grilled seafood and vegetables, and international dishes. The onboard bars house a selection of Cuban beers, rum, international wines, and spirits. All ships have a large dive deck at the back of the ship, with plenty of room for gear storage and kitting up before jumping into the pristine waters in and around Cuba, particularly the Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen) marine park.

The Jardines de la Reina marine park is a diver's paradise, and there are local marine biologists aboard, ready to teach and discuss the conservation of this unique ecosystem. Liveaboard diving in Cuba offers divers the chance to visit pristine coral reefs and an abundance of wildlife, including up to 6 different species of shark, such as hammerhead and silk sharks, huge schools of snapper, giant grouper, and even the chance of whale sharks at the right time of year.
