US cruise ship docks in Havana over 40 years since the last sailed the Florida Straits

An American cruise ship has docked in Havana for the first time in more than 40 years.


Since Presidents Obama and Castro announced in December 2014 that they had agreed to mend relations, tourism in Cuba has reached record numbers.
“I’m here because I have some family members coming on the cruise ship and because I want for Cuba and the US to stay the way they are right now – in peace and united; whatever it takes for things to continue improving,” said one excited Cuban waiting at port.

Before the 1959 Cuban Revolution ferries and cruise were the prefered way for Cubans and Americans to cross the Florida Straits.

The Adonia will sail every other week between Miami and Havana.
