Nothing Can Stop Them Now

Carnival Corp said this morning that the Cuban government has agreed to allow their Fathom brand to carry all passengers to Cuba regardless of their country of birth, including Cuban-born American citizens.

Actually, Cuba’s decision was much more broad than that. They’ve actually changed their law which prohibited Cuban citizens from entering or leaving the country by sea. They haven’t completely repealed the law, but they have modified it to allow Cuban citizens (which they still consider naturalized American citizens to be) to enter and exit the country as passengers or crew members on cruise ships and other commercial vessels.

The complete story appeared in the April 22 edition of Cruise News Daily.
