Commenting on the new USA Cuba travel ban, a spokesperson for Virgin Voyages, said: “The U.S. government has implemented new travel restrictions that eliminate the ability of cruise ships to travel to Cuba. While we are disappointed, the beauty of sea travel means that we have the flexibility to take our ships to many wonderful destinations.
“The Virgin Voyages’ crew is hard at work making necessary adjustments to any affected sailings that feature a stop in Cuba next year. Virgin Voyages will be announcing and opening sales on adjusted voyages featuring a new destination early next week.
“Virgin Voyages’ existing booking policies allow all Sailors (guests) the flexibility to move to another voyage date without penalty.
“When we announce a new port-of-call next week, we will implement a special policy for affected Cuba bookings.
Virgin Voyages’ existing five-night Mayan Sol and Dominican Daze sailings remain available for Sailors and First Mates to purchase.”
