Pearl Seas 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.
