New Road Scholar Adventure Offers Opportunity to Circumnavigate Cuba

Road Scholar has been offering People-to-People educational adventures to Cuba since 1997, giving thousands of Americans the opportunity to experience the rich culture and meet the incredible people of this fascinating island nation. And more Americans have experienced Cuba with Road Scholar than with any other educational travel organization.

Beginning in fall 2018, Road Scholar will offer an Adventures Afloat program that circumnavigates the Island aboard the newly renovated Victory 2. The ship is perfectly suited for a Road Scholar educational adventure, as it is designed to explore large ports like Havana, as well as smaller port cities. The adventure begins in Miami, and spends up to two days in ports in each region of the country. Participants will learn about the history and architecture, the food and culture, and most importantly, will meet the people of Cuba.

“For a variety of reasons, many U.S.-based organizations have recently reduced or terminated their offerings to Cuba,” said Jim Moses, Road Scholar CEO and President. “As a mission-driven organization, we remain committed to the People-to-People learning adventures that are so meaningful to Americans and Cubans alike.

Tuition starts at $4,499 per person. For individuals who book before August 31, 2018, Road Scholar will cover the cost of airfare from 26 different gateways. To enroll now, please visit our website at
