The recently amended regulations do not affect any of our sailings to Cuba. However, “self-guided people-to-people” travel is no longer allowed for any guest that booked on June 16, 2017 or after. This means that guests will need to choose a group “people-to-people” tour that complies with the new regulations, unless they qualify for other categories of authorized travel or hold a specific license issued by OFAC. All Royal Caribbean tours are designed to comply with the regulations.
In addition to the “self-guided people-to-people” travel amendment, OFAC prohibits direct financial transactions with a published a list of hotels, stores and other prohibited entities. For more information, see the where direct financial transactions are not permitted. The list can be found on OFAC’s Cuba Restricted List.
