Royal Caribbean and Azamara Approved to Cruise to Cuba

Royal Caribbean Cruises has announced that the Cuban government has granted approval for cruises to Cuba and the company plans to announce its first Florida – Cuba itineraries in the near future.

“Our guests have expressed real interest in having the opportunity to experience Cuba, and we look forward to bringing them there,” said Richard Fain, Chairman and Chief Executive, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “Our discussions with our travel partners indicate that Cuba is a destination that appeals to a new generation of travellers.”

Two RCCL lines, Royal Caribbean International and Azamara Club Cruises, will provide guests with travel directly to Cuba for the purpose of people-to-people exchanges between guests and Cuban citizens and other travel permitted by current US regulations.

The cruise itineraries will comply with US Department of Treasury rules that permit travel companies to transport approved travellers to Cuba to engage in people-to-people activities as defined by the US Department of Commerce, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
