Enjoy personal interaction with Cuban students, teachers, artists, musicians and business owners to get an authentic – and thorough – Cuban cultural experience.

  • Explore Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Santiago de Cuba
  • Engage with Cuban communities to discover a new culture and history
  • Compliment land-based experiences with cultural immersion activities at sea, including guest speakers, team workshops and more

I have mobility issues — slow and painful but no apparatus needed. Can I still take part in the impact activities?

Hi Nancy,

The trips to Cuba and the Dominican Republic are very different. I would love to talk to you further so I can give you some specifics. I will email you. In the meantime, each destination will have a range of different “shore excursions” and I think you’ll find ones you can participate in. For example, there’s teaching students English, supporting local entrepreneurs, helping with recycling for profit- creating marketable arts and crafts from recycled paper, and local reforestation efforts – simple potting of tree seedlings that I think would be do-able for you.
