Cuba famously sits just 90 miles from the United States — a stone’s throw, really — but in a lot of ways, could any other spot on the globe be further away? For decades throughout the Cold War and beyond, visiting Cuba was impossible for nearly all Americans, more of a dream than a vacation.

But today, this traveler’s jewel seems to sit a little bit closer — it’s just a Carnival cruise away! Visit the island during select Caribbean itineraries and experience the history-rich capital city that recently turned 500 — the incomparable Havana is at once a Caribbean time capsule and a living, breathing metropolis that’s home to two million.
