Travel ban US to Cuba

Supposedly if you're already paid you can still go. I believe it goes into effect today. My cruise is in August 2019 fortunately I am paid in full. We'll see what happens.

Stay tuned!!!

Just heard from MSC she stated that the Cuba destination has been canceled and will be replaced with another destination but they don’t know which destination yet.

Not happy, I really wanted to go to Cuba Crying

Just as I suspected...(and posted in the other thread on this subject) I'd have bet real money they'll all cancel visiting CUBA outright rather than risk TRUMPS wrath looking for loopholes. How many days were you to be in port in Havana? Are you unhappy enough to cancel? what are they offering in exchange? a partial refund, another port?

Fortunately, we did Cuba last September. Really enjoyed that port and had no idea this was going to happen. Suffice to say, if Cuba had not been included we wouldn't have booked the cruise, which went on to do the canal ending up in Hawaii. Not to say it wasn't a good cruise, it was, but for the future and the Caribbean, we been there done that multiple times, too many maybe. Lots of other areas of the world and ports to book other than the Caribbean

We were only going to be in port for two days this coming August but that port was my only reason for this cruise. Depending on what they're offering in exchange we may cancel because I've already been to the other ports. I'm actually trying to see if I can go from Canada at another date, if that could work.

It's a thought that I'm sure lots of people are wondering, but unfortunately I don't think that would work. The ban isn't just on boats/ships/aircraft from America. It's a restriction on the American people going to Cuba at all. I'm sure there are still loopholes, but general tourists aren't allowed, and the people-to-people program has basically been eliminated with this ban, which is how tourists were going before.

Biggest loophole is to live on the north side of the border Wink

Something to be said for that these days....

Yas yas….hows a body sposed to git to Cuber now? thru N Korea mebbe? THEY just love to give Mericans somebody put a bug in somebodys ear about all those YANQUI $$ winding up in the wrong hands eh? Now they've gone and done it...alienated the cruising public! Don't those folks in DC know who we are? Rhetorical question....
