Cuban-born travelers can now book a cruise on Carnival Corp.’s Cuba sailings, the cruise giant announced Monday, pending a change in Cuba’s policy that prohibits people born on the island from traveling there by sea.
Carnival Corp. said it remains “optimistic” that the Cuban government will alter its sea-travel regulation for Cuban-born individuals in the U.S. and around the world. If no change comes before Carnival Corp.’s inaugural May 1 sailing of its Fathom cruise line from Miami to Havana, the cruise company will delay its voyages until all passengers can travel, Carnival Corp. said in a release.
