Immerse yourself in Cuban culture as you visit friendly locals, savor traditional cuisine, and enjoy musical performances, including a visit to the Buena Vista Social Club. Plus, you’ll travel with ease aboard the intimate, 56-guest sailing ship, Le Ponant.
Le Ponant is a sleek, three-masted sailing vessel that is ideal for expedition cruising. When her 16,140-square-foot sails are unfurled, Le Ponant glides through the water at 10–12 knots. The four-deck vessel has ample public space, and is fully equipped with two restaurants, a lounge, bar, and small reading nook with a selection of books. All ocean-view staterooms feature an en suite bathroom, minibar, safe, radio, individual air conditioning control, and telephone. Le Ponant carries a fleet of Zodiacs and has facilities for snorkeling and diving.
