Join a cultural cruise along Cuba's Caribbean coast aboard a privately chartered yacht, stepping ashore to discover well-preserved colonial architecture, visit fascinating small museums, meet talented artists in their studios, and enjoy private concerts and other exclusive events.
Begin in Cienfuegos, where you will attend a performance by an a cappella group before embarking Variety Voyager. Cruise to Trinidad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Call at tiny, remote islands to visit the prison that once held Fidel Castro, meet marine ecologists, and hike through a nature reserve.
Conclude with two days in Havana, where you will absorb the culture and traditions of this colorful city and meet with the people who help shape the economy. Meet with local artists and dignitaries to learn about Cuba from its past, to present and future.
Your home for this cruise is Variety Voyager, a ship featuring only 36 cabins and the perfect size for exploring this largest of Caribbean islands. Call at lesser-visited ports, meet Cubans from all walks of life, and learn from educational talks.
For those who would like to spend more time in Cuba, Yale offers an optional postlude in Santiago de Cuba
