By now we have all heard the news that Carnival is starting up 7-night cruises to Cuba in May 2016 from Miami, FL.  The cruises will alternate with cruises going to the Dominican Republic for volunteerism on the company's fathom brand - the  710- passenger Adonia.  It will still operate under the people-to-people travel restrictions.  You will not need a license  in advance of the cruise.  Although no itinerary has been released so far, Carnival is accepting advance reservations accompanied by a $600 deposit. Prices start at $2,990pp.  Some on shore activities will be included. The US Department of the Treasury and Department of Commerce have already approved it.  Carnival is awaiting Cuban Government approval. Would you consider taking Carnival's cruise assuming that the ports of call were satisfactory to you?
