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 16 June 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 authorised travel or hold a specific licence 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, shops 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.
