Cruise Ships to Keep Calling on Cuba

U.S. President Donald Trump will revise the country’s Cuba policy, restricting dealings with Cuba’s military but while maintaining diplomatic relations and keeping U.S. airlines and cruise operators calling to the island, according to multiple media reports.

“Carnival Corporation is pleased that the policy changes announced by the Trump administration will allow our ships to continue to sail to Cuba,” it said in a statement.

“We will review the extent of the tightening of the travel rules, but our guests have already been traveling under the 12 approved forms of travel to Cuba since we undertook our historic first cruise to Cuba more than a year ago.

“Our experience in Cuba this past year has been extremely positive. We look forward to the new cruises being planned for Cuba with Carnival Cruise Line and Holland America Line. We also have requested approval for our other brands to travel to Cuba.

“Travel brings people and cultures together, so we are excited about the upcoming cruises to Cuba for our guests.”
