Cuban authorities granted approval for Carnival Corporation to begin travel to Cuba starting on May 1.
Following U.S. authorization granted in July 2015, Carnival Corporation is now cleared to operate the 704-passenger MV Adonia to Cuba through its newest brand Fathom. This marks the first time in more than 50 years a cruise ship is approved to sail from the United States to Cuba.
“We are excited about Cuban approval and are ready to take travelers there through an extraordinary guest experience on the beautiful MV Adonia,” Carnival CEO Arnold Donald said. “This is a historic opportunity and we know there is pent-up demand amongst Americans who want to experience Cuba.”
