In December 2019 we arrived at Havana on an MSC Cruise in the Caribbean. We went on a tour of the city in a vintage car, and then walked around the main part of the city located near the Cruise Port. The locals were friendly and we were not met with pressing crowds of people selling their goods as in other ports in the Caribbean. We felt safe and engaged in pleasant conversations with city residents. The cars of my childhood and adolescence were in remarkably good shape. The Tropicana Nightclub was a highlight of the trip. It was part of an MSC excursion experience. The food was good and the entertainment most memorable. Great singing, music, and dance on a massive stage in the outdoors under the tropical stars.
