上次博客寫古巴領導人死了,美國游輪股票價格上升,我預感很快美國游輪擴增古巴航線。美國人去古巴旅遊不再是夢想了!
果然,今天新聞證實了預感正確!當然,不坐游輪的美國遊客美國法律還是禁止去古巴旅遊做生意的,需等禁商禁運(trade and travel bans)法除去后~

Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Win Approval to Sail to Cuba--Update
12/7/16, 4:08 PM

WASHINGTON -- Two American cruise lines said Wednesday that they have received permission from the Cuban government to begin trips to Cuba next year, expanding the scope of business ties between the U.S. and its longtime adversary.

The announcements by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. come as the Obama administration is pushing for completion of a number of business deals in Cuba before President-elect Donald Trump takes office . The Obama administration sees such deals as key to making the diplomatic and commercial opening to the island permanent.

General Electric Co. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google unit, among other companies, are expected to make announcements in the coming weeks, officials have said. A third cruise line, Pearl Seas Cruises also is expected to obtain approval. Carnival Cruise Line began trips to the island earlier this year.

Royal Caribbean and Norwegian said the Cuba stops would comply with regulations enforced by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control and that the trips would involve activities that fall under the U.S. government's "people-to-people" exchange license.

"Our guests have expressed real interest in having the opportunity to experience Cuba, and we look forward to bringing them there," said Richard Fain, chairman and chief executive of Royal Caribbean. Royal Caribbean said it would announce additional details about the trips in the coming days.

Norwegian said all three of its cruise brands -- Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises -- will offer service to Cuba next year. Its first trip to Cuba will be in March.

Frank Del Rio, president and CEO of Norwegian, said that as a Cuban-American he was especially excited to start service to the island.

"This is truly a dream come true for me and I cannot wait for our loyal guests to experience the sights and sounds of my hometown of Havana," he said.

Regular tourist travel to Cuba remains prohibited in the U.S. and Congress must act to fully lift the trade and travel bans. Since announcing in 2014 that the U.S. would move to normalize ties, President Barack Obama has taken steps to loosen trade and allow for certain types of travel, prompting a flood of American travel to the island as well as a flurry of initial business deals. Commercial flights to the island began in September to smaller cities, and the first airline flights to Havana began last week.

不讓去的地方都有吸引力。加勒比海許多國家比古巴遠的都有游輪航線,就差古巴了。

歐8沒有權力取消,要國會通過才行。現在還沒取消呢~

按原文來說禁令未解除。但是紐約時報中文版編輯的畫蛇添足說禁令完全解除是錯誤理解,應該是下一步。

"華盛頓——在奧巴馬總統將於下周訪問哈瓦那之際,他領導的政府於周二宣布,將允許美國公民個人前往古巴進行「民間對民間的」教育之旅,取消在與古巴的交易中使用美元的限制,從而解除了兩國在旅行和商務方面的一些嚴格限制。"
