I hope so, but doubt it. I read somewhere that the cruise lines would love to be allowed offer Havana as a port of call from the US.

No, but he's probably seen some tv shows and read on the internet therefore pead is now a Cuba expert. Hell why don't you just title yourself the port of call encyclopedia. Now i'm taking a shot @ u


I doubt there will be any travel to cuba soon, especially by ship. I've been before when i was younger (12), and in many aspects its kind of like Nassau, but with a latin flair. Cuba has one of the richest cultures in the world and despite the tight government its somewhere everyone needs to visit sometime in their life. The simplistic elegance of the island's latin culture mixed with just enough touristy pampering really provides for an amazing experience. More than anything though, know how to dance, music is really a big part of their culture and if u wanna have a good time, know some merengue. The newer dirty dancing does a good job of portraying cuba as we'd experience it for those of you who have never been.

That alone would make me want to go there. I'm really not much of a "beach and suntanning" person, but I really enjoy learning about and experiencing different cultures.

I really hope they do...because it would be really cool to visit.

My neighbor and her brother, sister and parents were born in Cuba. They left when they were really young..they came over with nothing. And now they are extremely wealthy and stuff so they like it here a lot better. But when I talk to them about it they want to go back to visit..they said it was gorgeous. And they want to take my neighbors daughter(one of my best friends) because she was obviously born here since shes like my age..but they can't until this whole thing goes away.

You can fly there through Canada, on AirCanada. I found on AirCanada's website, it's about a 3 1/2 hour flight to Havana from Toronto. I also tried from Montreal, but that had me change planes in Toronto.

However, considering the sorry state the airline industry is in right now, I think I'll wait until I can cruise there.

You can also go through Mexico, but the thing is that when you get back into the US, if there is any sign of you being in Cuba you will get a large fee.
