Cruises, a coastal cruise operator that began operations in July, said it is
exploring itinerary options for Cuba.
It said the
210-passenger Pearl Mist would be a good size to take passengers where larger
ships cannot dock in Cuba.
Pearl Seas is considering
cruises which will operate on both the southern and northern coasts of Cuba.
Cruises could begin and conclude in South Florida or at one of many island
nations near Cuba, the cruise line said.
Louis Cruises currently
operates seasonally in Cuba with the 960-passenger Louis Crystal, offering
seven-day cruises departing from either Havana or Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Americans remain barred from traveling to Cuba
under the terms of a U.S. trade embargo, except for those who fall into
12 special travel categories, such as academic or
people-to-people ambassador programs.
