Carnival may delay Cuba cruise over discrimination concerns
The Associated Press
Carnival says it will delay the first cruise from the United States to
Cuba if the Cuban government does not allow Cuban-Americans to travel
Cuban regulations bar people born in Cuba from returning to the country
by ship. As a result, Carnival had prohibited barred Cuban-Americans
from buying tickets on the May 1 cruise from Miami to Havana and a
series of other Cuban ports.
Carnival said in a written statement Monday that it was optimistic that
Cuba would allow Cuban-Americans to join the cruise by May 1 and would
begin selling tickets to Cuban-Americans. The company said that if
Cuban-Americans were not allowed to join the cruise, it would be delayed.
Carnival has been sued by Cuban-Americans claiming discrimination and
protesters have targeted its headquarters in Doral.
