Be among the privileged few to join this uniquely designed people-to-people itinerary, featuring three nights in the spirited, soulful capital city of Havana followed by a six-night cruise along the island’s southern coast to Santiago de Cuba—an extraordinary opportunity to traverse the entire breadth of Cuba. Beneath 16,000 square feet of billowing white canvas, sail aboard the exclusively chartered, three-masted M.Y. Le Ponant, featuring only 32 deluxe Staterooms, and enjoy an unprecedented people-to-people experience engaging local Cubans and U.S. travelers with one another to openly share commonalities of values and interests—in this historical moment when these countries are reshaping their future relationship.

Experience firsthand the true character of the Caribbean’s largest and most complex island. See the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Old Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and the Viñales Valley. Accompanied by experienced, English-speaking Cuban hosts, immerse yourself in a comprehensive and intimate travel experience that explores the history, culture, art, language, cuisine and rhythms of daily Cuban life while interacting with local Cuban experts including musicians, artists, farmers, academics and architects.
