Anyone going on the May 13th Cuba trip (program 20437) & would like to introduce yourself? I'm from Charleston SC and my room mate is from Columbia SC. Just curious what parts of the US will be represented

Freida McDuffie Apr 03, 2014 at 08:02 PM

Thanks...I had to call RS today with some other questions and asked about that...was told all that was settled and we are good to go in May.

Freida McDuffie Apr 03, 2014 at 10:37 AM

Linda, how did you know about the bank/visa situation? ~Freida
Linda Bevan Apr 03, 2014 at 07:56 PM

It was in the paper/internet news a few weeks ago. I emailed our guides personal email, he said RS should have plenty of visas till it is settled

Kira Dirlik Mar 30, 2014 at 04:03 PM

I just got my RoadScholar catalog for N. Am. and under Cuba is the one I REALLY would love, which wasn't initially on the website. Apparently it was cancelled?

Does anyone know why, or have interest in it? Been on it? It is "The Spirit of Eastern Cuba: Experiencing 'Oriente'". Thanks for any info on it.
Linda Bevan Mar 31, 2014 at 05:10 AM

Very recently, the US bank that processed the $$$ for the Cuban visas withdrew due to lots af admin requirements. They gave a long notice, but officials were not able to find a bank that wd do it. From what I understand, in anticipation of that move, licensed tour operators bought up a supply of visas. But they will run out "sometime". And still no bank has surfaced. I wd lok for ALL these tour operators to cease after they run out of their stock of pre purchased docs. Go now!
Kira Dirlik Mar 31, 2014 at 12:18 PM

Thanks. My schedule was really looking for a Fall trip. I've already registered for this trip, for Nov., but if it can't happen, I presume RS will let us know in time to look for elsewhere in this fantastic world. So much to see and learn, so little time.

Edi Pollaert Mar 25, 2014 at 08:20 PM

Any participants from South West Florida driving to Miami on May 6th???

Barbara Rabon Mar 25, 2014 at 03:52 PM

What immunizations are required for travel to Cuba?
Freida McDuffie Mar 25, 2014 at 04:04 PM

CDC states typhoid and hepatitis A, but Road Scholar and my doctor recommends only routine immunizations such as tetanus, flu, etc.
Kira Dirlik Mar 27, 2014 at 05:57 PM

I am also wondering about visas. My trip isn't until Nov., but do we need to send our passports somewhere for a visa, or will it just be stamped at the border?
Barbara Rabon Mar 27, 2014 at 06:18 PM

I was told by RS that the visa is included in the cost of the program and that RS obtains the visa

Toni Tracy Mar 24, 2014 at 02:50 PM

Registered for the April 22nd trip to Cuba... anyone else on this trip?
Jennifer McDowell Mar 24, 2014 at 02:51 PM

Hi toni,
Jennifer McDowell Mar 24, 2014 at 02:52 PM

I'm on that trip. Coming from Pittsburgh, solo traveler.
Toni Tracy Mar 24, 2014 at 04:25 PM

Cool... my husband and I are traveling from California.
Phyllis Miller Apr 02, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Hi Toni and Jennifer, My husband, Jeff, and I will be on this trip. We are also from California, but we'll be visiting the east coast prior to leaving for Miami on Apr. 22.

Freida McDuffie Mar 18, 2014 at 09:32 PM

Just registered for May 13th trip to Cuba...any special tips from those who have already traveled there?
Karen Leonard Apr 08, 2014 at 11:59 AM
