On Hold Pending Government Regulations (see below)
Small luxury ship cruising from the Florida coast to various ports in Cuba with your Hosts Lori, who has visited the island, and Mark. You will experience both the cities and countryside and have the chance to mingle with the gracious and hospitable Cuban people. A very special and unique opportunity not to be missed!

Yesterday, the United States government declared that effective immediately, educational and recreational (or people-to-people) travel to Cuba is no longer permitted. This new regulation prohibits travel from the U.S. to Cuba by cruise ship, recreational vessel, or non-commercial aircraft. As a result, this change requires us to put our trip 'on hold' until we see what transpires over the next few months.
NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDENS
Experience the magnificent spring eyecandy of the The New York Botanical Gardens where a spring crescendo of white, coral, pink, and purple azalea blossoms is one of the Garden’s most striking seasonal spectacles. Set amongst the dramatic rock outcrops, steep slopes and dappled shade of centuries-old native trees, this garden is beautiful throughout the seasons with plants in bloom nearly every day of the year. Alongside the azaleas and rhododendron, you’ll find a diverse assortment of flowering trees and shrubs, woodland perennials, bulbs, ferns and grasses. Collections in this garden include dogwood, mountain laurel, hydrangea, spice-bush, witch-hazel, epimedium, hosta, hellebore, snow-drop, and ferns. Lunch at the intimate Hudson Garden Grill restaurant. Day trip via luxury motocoach from Saratoga Springs and Albany, NY. Details available shortly.
