Castro dead @ 90

Cuban leader Fidel Castro has died.   What affect this will have on the cruise industry will be interesting.  I'm sure talks among the cruise industry leaders and Cuban officials will pick up.   The next question is, how long til they regret allowing thousands of tourists at any one time onto their island.

Not long I am sure, who knows may have a positive affect for the people. I myself will travel there as soon as 2019 figure give them a couple years to iron out all the wrinkles.

I'm thinking that Raoul C. has a few ideas that are much different than his revolutionary brother. It will be interesting to see how things transpire.

I think Cuba will progress.

With his brother now gone, the power of Fidel won't be over his head. The power to progress will be great. There will be an opening for tourism, trade and economic growth coming up.

Canada has always had a pretty good relationship with them, so there might not be too many changes for us. My daughter in laws step dad  lives there. We will visit in a year or two.

I hope that the corruption and trouble that has spread troughout the region doesn't affect them.

You never can tell which way things will go. Hopefully things turn to the better but we really do not know. Unfortunately there will be foreign influences trying to vie for control there so it certainly will not be as smooth a ride and transition as some may think.

We have friends who go to all inclusive resorts in Cuba every winter, and they love it because the resorts are gorgeous, inexpensive compared to other more touristy places, and the people are so friendly. Prices may rise if tourism is opened up for our American friends to enjoy because the resorts will be busier.

If Trump doesn't undo the progress made.

I spoke to a woman this morning who just came back from an all inclusive resort near Veradero, yesterday. She said there was a very mixed reaction to the news, because the people don't know what to expect now. She also said the resort, which they visit yearly is nicer, better and cheaper than any other 4-5 star resort they've been to in Mexico, Jamaica or the Dominican. Cuba has been a popular destination for Canadians for years.

It will depend on Raoul but also Trump.  I hope that travel restrictions ease up as I would like to visit but not under the current conditions.
