At a Glance

In Havana, cobblestone streets and the ocean-side Malecón are two of the best ways to explore Cuba’s capital city. Further south in Cienfuegos, the city’s historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, preserving the early colonial history that gives the city its charm. And in the southeastern city of Santiago de Cuba, poetry, music and revolutionary history have made their impressions on this rich cultural region. Discover the secrets of these vibrant Cuban cities — and meet the fascinating people who live there — on a journey through the waters of the Caribbean via ocean liner.
