Carnival’s Adonia, first US cruise ship to visit Cuba in 50 years

Published on : Monday, May 2, 2016

US cruise shipThe first US cruise ship to visit Cuba in 50 years, Carnival Corporation’s MV Adonia, was scheduled to set sail out of the Port of Miami on Sunday afternoon.

 
The ship with 700 passengers onboard is scheduled to dock at Havana harbour for two days after which it will visit the ports of Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba.

 
The Adonia will return to Miami on May 8, while the Cuba cruise schedule sets visits every two weeks.

 
No beach tours will be allowed, since American law bans US citizens from engaging in tourism in Cuba and the beach is considered a leisure activity not included in the 12 categories authorized for US citizens to visit the island.

 
However, cruise passengers will be able to venture out for a traditional sightseeing tour, and enjoy the landscapes, meet the people and take a look around.

 
They can also enjoy a trip in a 1950 vintage car to a show and a disco, arranged with Cuba’s Havanatur travel agency.
