From the Miami, Florida-based Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association:
According to Mr. Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman of Geneva, Switzerland-based MSC Cruises, the Republic of Cuba is “not a panacea for the whole cruise industry” and “still, there will be big growth,” and the fifteen-year (15) contract for London, United Kingdom-based Global Ports Holding through its office in Istanbul, Turkey, to manage and develop the cruise port in the city of Havana will “definitely help. Bigger ships will come,” and “Cuba is a fantastic experience.”
Mr. Micky Arison, chairman of Miami, Florida-based Carnival Corp. & plc, shared that guest satisfaction is very high for cruises to the Republic of Cuba and thus far the number of passengers to the Republic of Cuba in 2017 was less than the number of passengers that visit Cozumel, Mexico, in one (1) week.
