Carnival Cleared to Sail from US to Cuba

Cuba has granted approval for Carnival Corporation & plc to begin travel to Cuba starting on May 1, 2016 thus clearing the company’s 704-passenger MV Adonia to sail to Cuba through its newest brand Fathom.

Cuban authorities from Havanatur Celimar, various other agencies and Carnival Corporation signed agreements on Monday enabling cruising by Carnival Corporation to Cuba. This marks the first time in over 50 years a cruise ship is approved to sail from the United States to Cuba.

“Our Carnival Corporation and Fathom brand teams have worked closely with Cuba throughout this process and we are thrilled to begin regular sailings to Cuba from Miami starting on May 1, 2016,” said Tara Russell, president of Carnival Corporation’s new Fathom brand.

We have been told that we will be the first cruise line to sail from the U.S. to Cuba with our historic inaugural sailing.”

  “This is a historic opportunity, and we know there is pent-up demand amongst Americans who want to experience Cuba. We believe there is no better way to experience so much of Cuba in seven days,” said Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation.

During each sailing, Carnival Corporation through its Fathom brand initially will visit Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba, three ports of call for which Carnival Corporation has obtained berthing approval.
