First Cruise from U.S. to Cuba in 50 Years Docks at Havana

HAVANA – The cruise ship Adonia of the Fathom company, an affiliate of Carnival Corporation, arrived at Havana this Monday to open the first cruise line between the United States and Cuba in more than half a century.

The ship, with 704 passengers aboard including a dozen Cuban-Americans, has sailed into Havana Harbor to dock at the Sierra Maestra cruise ship terminal in the historic center of Havana.

The arrival of the Adonia attracted scores of locals who gathered on the Malecon esplanade and around the old colonial Morro Castle to watch the ship sail into Havana Harbor after its eight-hour crossing from Miami.

Some spectators in the crowd on Havana’s seafront this Monday waved Cuban flags and someone even waved an American flag, EFE observed.

On the decks of the ship were groups of passengers getting their first look at the Cuban capital on this historic inaugural voyage.

The program of this cruise that will sail from Miami to Cuba every other week features a program of cultural, educational and humanitarian activities on land and at sea.

Carnival, the world’s largest cruise ship company, promises travelers on this maritime route a “cultural immersion” experience on a seven-day trip around the island, with Havana its first port of call, followed by Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba.
