At Sea


Havana, Cuba (overnight)
Havana is the center of the Cuban government, and various ministries and headquarters of businesses are based there.

The current Havana area and its natural bay were first visited by Europeans during Sebastián de Ocampo's circumnavigation of the island in 1509. Shortly thereafter, in 1510, the first Spanish colonists arrived from Hispaniola and began the conquest of Cuba.

Shortly after the founding of Cuba's first cities, the island served as little more than a base for the Conquista of other lands.

Havana was originally a trading port, and suffered regular attacks by buccaneers, pirates, and French corsairs.

Under American influence, the city saw a new era of development. Numerous residencies, luxury hotels, casinos and nightclubs were constructed since the 1930s to serve Havana's burgeoning tourist industry, strongly reviling Miami.

There was a severe economic downturn after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and with it the end of the billions of dollars in subsidies the Soviet Union gave the Cuban government.

Neo-classical, Baroque, and colonial archiecture can be found throughout the island. The influence from different styles and cultures can be seen in Havana's colonial architecture, with a diverse range of Moorish, Spanish, Italian, Greek and Roman.

There are diverse museums, clubs and beaches for tourists to enjoy.
