Cuba lifting a restriction about Cubans entering or leaving the Island by sea

Havana.- Cuba reversed a decades-old policy on Friday, lifting a restriction that prevented Cubans from entering or leaving the country by cruise ship or commercial vessel, according to a statement in the country’s national newspaper, Granma.

Last month, Carnival became the first American cruise company to obtain Cuban approval to sail to the island. European and Canadian cruise lines have already been making the trip.

“We made history in March, and we are a part of making history again today,” said Arnold Donald, the president and chief executive of the Carnival Corporation, adding, “We were very positive there would be this outcome and were proceeding in that fashion.”
