    Carnival Corp may delay start of Cuba cruises

    Carnival Corp may delay start of Cuba cruises
    APRIL 18

    U.S. cruise operator Carnival Corp said it may delay its voyages to
    Cuba, scheduled to start on May 1, unless Cuban authorities allow
    Cuban-born Americans to travel in cruise ships as they are allowed in
    airlines.

    Cuban-born Americans cannot visit the island by sea due to a Cuban law
    that dates to the Cold War era. People born in Cuba can, however, travel
    to the country on an airplane.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday condemned the world’s
    largest cruise operator for barring Cuban-Americans from its planned
    cruises to Cuba.

    The company has now said it is accepting bookings from all travelers to
    Cuba, irrespective of nationality, on its ‘Fathom’ cruise, which is
    expected to begin sailing to three Cuban cities every fortnight from May 1.

    The operator of the Carnival Cruise Line said the company is continuing
    discussions with Cuban authorities and is confident of a positive outcome.

    Last month, the Miami, Florida-based company said it was the first
    cruise ship operator to be approved to sail to Cuba in over 50 years.
    However, the company is not allowed to ferry Cuban-born Americans
    according to the Cuban law. (Reporting by Abhijith G in Bengaluru;
