Cuba Cruise Canceled: Explore Cruise Alternatives
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.
Other cruise destinations are being offered by the companies that already had Cuba sailings booked. Alternate destinations, refunds, credits, and other remedies are being offered by the various cruise lines.
