Cuba Cruise Canceled: Explore Cruise Alternatives

Cuba cruise canceled

If you’ve been planning to book a cruise to Cuba in the near future, you’ll have to put your plans on hold. If you already had a cruise booked, you’ll be told, “Cuba cruise canceled” by your cruise line. Starting on the 5th of June in 2019, American’s can no longer visit Cuba via cruise ships and under the “people to people” visa.

Happy Traveler Comment
Just wanted to follow up and say what a pleasure it was to work with you [Darlene] and Cesar and I am thankful for the patient and prompt responses to several questions I had leading up to the trip. And the trip was awesome! I would also recommend Holland America. We did a cruisetour. The land tour schedule was intense at times, but worth it. I feel like we saw three weeks' worth in one week. And there were never any lines and very little waiting with Holland America having made all arrangements ahead of time. I can't imagine a better trip! Thank you! — Brigette and Bruce W.
