With U.S. Tourists Barred from Visiting Cuba by State Department, Tourism Works with Cruise Lines

WITH U.S. TOURISTS BARRED FROM VISITING CUBA BY STATE DEPARTMENT, TOURISM WORKS WITH CRUISE LINES TO ADD CALLS TO USVI


Following the U.S. government’s renewed restrictions on travel to Cuba, the U.S. Virgin Islands government is working closely with the cruise lines to help them as they race to rework their itineraries, the Department of Tourism said Wednesday.

The State Department announced this week that the United States would no longer permit visits to Cuba via passenger and recreational vessels, including cruise ships and yachts, nor on private and corporate aircraft.

Joseph Boschulte, D.O.T. commissioner designee, said that since news of the policy shift, the Ports of the Virgin Islands has reached out to the cruise lines to offer inconvenienced passengers the opportunity to visit the territory, including the less busy cruise destination of St. Croix.

“We have been in contact with the lines about making calls to both St. Croix and St. Thomas,” said Mr. Boschulte, who let executives know that the territory’s ports can accommodate diverted vessels on short notice.

1. I thought you just can't spend money there - how can they "bar" you from going?
