Set out from the ship and visit El Cristo -- an impressive 55-foot-tall statue of Christ – to capture beautiful photos of the statue and the Havana skyline. Travel along Havana’s waterfront promenade, known as El Malecon, on a short panoramic journey through modern Havana to Plaza de la Revolucion. Under the colossal iron murals of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, Plaza de la Revolucion offers opportunity to speak with classic car owners and learn about Cuba’s national hero, Jose Marti.

Next, get to know the locals who call the community art project of Fusterlandia their home. Fusterlandia is a uniquely colorful cultural arts complex created by the 'Picasso of the Caribbean', where an entire neighborhood has been turned into a mosaic playground celebrating the works of Picasso, Gaudi and the local Cuban culture. After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant, travel to the Habana Compas modern dance studios, where the nearly all-female ensemble uses their hands, drumsticks, heels, wood slippers, claves, chairs and other items as instruments of percussion. Discover the history of African influenced instruments that have become integral to the Cuban sound before hearing about the life of a musician in Cuba from members of the performance group. Drive through the Colon Cemetery, one of the largest cemeteries in the Caribbean, followed by a stop at the church with free time to explore.
