    The Experience

    Cuba is often called “The Pearl of the Antilles,” and for good reason. Join Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic for an in-depth exploration of Cuba from the island’s northwestern capital city of Havana to the southern coast of Cienfuegos.


    In this 11-day trip, consisting of three days in Old Havana and seven days on a private 25-cabin cruise ship, discover the island-nation’s treasures with acclaimed travel writer Christopher P. Baker, “one of the world's leading authorities on Cuba travel and culture,” and photographer Bob Krist. Christopher will provide you with riveting stories about Cuba while Bob documents the trip with his expert lens.

    Departing December 14th, your trip organizers have lined up a full program of people-to-people visits to meet with local residents who are making a difference in their fields. You’ll develop a rich understanding of life in Cuba today and the forces that have shaped it. Your choice of excursions include a performance by the award-winning Cienfuegos Choir, a tour of a body shop where mechanics repair classic American cars, a visit to a turtle rescue center, and a meeting with local doctors and nurses to discuss Cuba’s medical system. Along the way, you’ll tour Old Havana’s colonial architecture, set foot on multiple UNESCO sites, visit Ernest Hemingway’s home, and go behind the scenes of a cigar factory. For the full itinerary, please see the details section. A portion of this sale will benefit the Lindblad-National Geographic Fund, which encourages exploration and global stewardship.
