I've heard there is a ship that leaves from Playa Del Carmen or Cancun to Cuba all inclusive cruise thing. Does anyone know about this?

I don't know specifically about it, but it would not suprise me. There are only one or two countries in the world where travel to Cuba is illegal, and the United States is unfortunately one. If you do go to Cuba illicitly you have to ask not to have your passport stamped.

Yes I know that part about the passports. Just trying to locate the ship. I saw boat rides to Cuba from Jamaica when I was there. America needs to lift these stupid travel restrictions when we can visit China or Vietnam.

It won't be long. Right now Cuba is busy making preparations for an influx of American visitors. I think maybe a year. Two at the most. Both Cuba and the United States seems open to at least the possibility of it. If I find out anything about the cruise to Cuba, I will let you know. Personally, I would not mind to spend a few months in Havana, drinking Mojitos, sipping cafe con leche, enjoying the company of a beautiful Cuban woman as the tropical sun sets over the ocean. Ok. I think I just came up with a movie idea. As I was saying, I will see what I can find out.

I found a cruise line that offers Caribbean cruises with Cuba included, but you have to get to Bridgetown, Barbados to embard and they are a bit pricey. Check fredolsencruises.com for more details. Prices are in pounds sterling but you can easily convert the currency at xe.com

I would not worry though. The Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act(HR 874/S 428) looks like it will pass by the end of this session, though it may possibly have to be restarted for the next congressional session. At last check it has 181 supporters in the House and 32 in the Senate. The main concern is if it will get out of committee or not. I can tell you that the entire travel industry is lobbying for it. Right now, I know ASTA(American Society of Travel Agents), NTOA(National Tour Operators Association), NTA(National Tour Association), and CLIA(Cruise Lines International Association) are all lobbying for it. In addition to this, it is also supported by human rights groups. This is the third time this legislation has been to committee, and the last time the Anti-Cuban lobby shot it down. Maybe this time will be different.

Strategically, Cuba is AS important as PANAMA or Mexico.
Commuhist governments are always an enemy of private property ownership. Just ask the Cuban refugees from the revolution if they want their homes and land back.
