The End To Future Cuba Cruises!!

Recommended Posts

Doesn't surprise me....I was more surprised at how long it lasted that people got to go the Cuba under the false pretense of one of the 12 categories you could claim....come on, your on vacation..drinking on cruise and its a cruise stop....or if your flying in and staying at a resort or casa and drinking on the beach....its a vacation no matter how you want to try to slant or color it....

 

I think its a part of a bigger push to put some pressure on Venezuela at the end of the day and this is some collateral damage.

 

Will be interesting to see what happens to all the cruises currently booked for Cuba.

Hmmmm...maybe embark out of Cozumel with no US port stops(?). Some cruise lines have passengers embarking and disembarking at several ports on an itinerary.

I wonder what will happen with Empress & Majesty.

I wonder if they'd fit under the Duluth Harbor Lift Bridge?  (I'm still pushing for cruises out of Minnesota/Wisconsin).

Well, crap!  We are booked on Empress of the Seas for June 23, 2019!  What does this mean?!

It might be cancelled, BUT, when policy changes, there is usually a "grace" period before it takes affect, so, cross your fingers that the "grace" period expires after you cruise.

Umm, hello?  I think you mean "Perfect Day"...

Overnight at Perfect Day to replace overnight in Cuba.  Hmmm.

Won't happen for cruises, like mine, where the second day is in Cozumel.  Too far to travel in one day, I think.

PS - this is all my fault.  My final payment for my Cuba cruise was 4 days ago.

Nope.  Mine.  I got a comp cruise from MyVegas and confirmed a June 10 cruise on Majesty yesterday.

Crowne PlazaThey have no information yet, they are still evaluating. I am guessing that it will probably take a few days or longer to sort out what they can do. If I were to venture a guess, I would guess that they will replace Havana with Cozumel Nassau or CocoCay. Hotel & Resorts Fort Lauderdale Airport

In my case they are taking a full day to reach Key West, then Havana overnight then back to Florida. I see Nassau and Perfect Day in my future, depending how these new restrictions are implemented and the dates.

At least I'm fully refundable.  I'll probably lose the $200 OBC I got for when they chartered another ship though.  I've got some CUCs left over from my last visit.  Oh well.

If my cruise luck continues I'll be giving back C&A points in 2019.

In the bigger picture it's going to cost Royal a ding on the balance sheet.  They have two ships for this market, bringing them back just for Cuba.  Money spent refreshing them, sprucing them up, crew, etc. It was an investment for them to service Cuba. 

They hardly need or want these ships doing the short cruise FL cruise market so now what?
