US cruise ship travels to Cuba for first time in decades

Baku, May 2, AZERTAC

An American cruise ship is sailing to Cuba from the US, the first such trip in more than 50 years, according to the BBC.

The Adoni has sailed from the port of Miami carrying some 700 passengers. It is due to arrive in Havana on Monday.

Cuba and the US restored diplomatic relations last year. The cruise trip only went ahead after Cuba scrapped a ban on its citizens entering or leaving the island by sea.

The US company operating the cruise, Carnival, had been given permission by both governments to run ships between Florida and Cuba.
