Victory Cruise Lines, a small ship company started in 2016, has received approval to bring their sole ship, Victory I, to Cuba.
In addition to Havana, the line plans to bring its 202-passenger vessel to Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santiago de Cuba and Maria La Gorda. While itineraries aren't set yet, the line wants to have overnight stops in at least three ports, said Bruce Nierenberg, president and CEO of Victory Cruise Lines.
The future of Cuba cruising has seemed uncertain in recent weeks, as cruise lines waited to see if President Trump would drastically roll back travel to the Caribbean's largest island. Last Friday, Trump said that he would crack down on independent travel, but that group travel through people to people -- which most cruise lines sailing to Cuba had adopted -- would be allowed to continue.
