A friend of mine has a sibling who is studying in Cuba. How can said friend get to Havana from NYC for a visit?

Or should one not post such intentions on a public site? Anyhow, suggestions appreciated either way.
More info: my friend is a US citizen living in New York City. Sometime in November, they would like to spend about a week in Cuba. What are the best routes to make the trip? Fly to Canada first? Or the Caribbean? Are there any ways to book such a trip from the US, or do you simply have to do it in stages, getting a flight to Havana once you've arrived in a more Cuba-friendly nation?
Cost is somewhat of an issue, so any information about relative expenses for different ways to go would be much appreciated.
We've read some recommendations about how to handle the return into the States, but any additional tips would be also appreciated.
If I'm asking a question too sensitive to be answered publicly, you can e-mail me at maybecuba at yahoo dot cawm.
Many thanks in advance. My friend would really love to be able to visit their sib in such an unusual (for USians) country.
