Seven Days In Cuba That Could Change The Way You See The World

For the true traveler, the world isn’t just something to be seen. It’s something to be touched. Experienced. Shared. And as you join the first wave of U.S. travelers to travel Cuba for more than half a century, you’ll feel the excitement in the air from the moment you step on board your ship. Cuban movies, Cuban music, Cuban cuisine – they’ll all be part of your outbound voyage, as you learn more about the remarkable people you’re about to meet.



Cuba’s colorful capital is probably best known for the Spanish-influenced architecture of Old Havana. But its historic castles, fortresses, cathedrals, mansions and public buildings vie for attention with the city’s lively music and entertainment scene, an eclectic and sophisticated mix of museums, art galleries, music, dance, and open-air festivals that take full advantage of the island’s sunny Caribbean climate.



The coastal city of Cienfuegos, the center of Cuba’s sugar, tobacco, and coffee trades, is known to Cubans as the Pearl of the South. Near the entrance to the city’s spectacular natural bay stands the great stone fortress of Castillo de Jagua, built in 1745 to protect the city against pirate attacks.

Santiago de Cuba


The distinctly Caribbean spirit of Santiago de Cuba is evident in every aspect of the city’s cultural life. Cuba’s second largest city is home to the popular festivals of Carnaval and the Fiesta del Fuego, as well as to many of the country’s most famed musicians and artists and some of its most visited historic sites.

Adventure or Relaxation at Sea

By land-area measurements, Cuba is the largest country in the Caribbean. Traveling by ship means you to only have to unpack once. While we transit hundreds of miles between ports you get your choice of how to spend your time, rather than transiting by plane or bus. Learn how to salsa, and maybe even tango. Practice some elementary Spanish or take a workshop on how to make great travel photos. Learn the art of making an authentic Cuban cocktail such as a Mojito, Cuba Libre or Daiquiri. You make your own adventure at sea, which may be as simple as enjoying a great book and cool drink by the pool.


Travel Deep. On Ground and At Sea.

Your time on the island is intended to be a genuine cultural exchange experience – part learning, part pure enjoyment – as you get to know the Cuban people face to face. This calendar of a typical week’s itinerary, as well as sample days on board and onshore, will give you some idea of the possibilities. But only your journey itself can help you realize them.


On Ground

  • Lunch at Local Restaurant
  • Take a walk in Hemingway’s footsteps in old Havana
  • Listen to the renowned a capella choir of Cienfuegos

At Sea
