Cuba People to People Ban

With New Regulations, U.S. Ending Cruise Travel to Cuba

Cruise travel to Cuba will be eliminated with new rules from the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The announcement by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control on Tuesday that it would be ending people-to-people travel to Cuba is also the end to travel that has flourished since restrictions on Cuban travel began to thaw in 2014—cruise travel.

In a published statement to the U.S. Department of State website, a spokesperson wrote that along with the elimination of people-to-people trips “United States will no longer permit visits to Cuba via passenger and recreational vessels, including cruise ships and yachts, and private and corporate aircraft.”
