The good news for cruisers who are currently booked on a Carnival Cruise Line or Holland America Line cruise to Cuba is that the new restrictions being put into place will have no effect on the company’s cruises to Cuba.
The statement issued by the world’s largest cruise company can be read below:
“Carnival Corporation is pleased that the policy changes announced by the Trump administration will allow our ships to continue to sail to Cuba. 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.”
Carnival Cruise Line’s first cruise to Cuba will take place on June 29, 2017 on a four day cruise on Carnival Paradise. Holland America’s first cruise to Cuba will depart on December 22, 2017 out of Port Everglades.
