First cruise to sail from U.S. to Cuba in decades

MIAMI, FL (WFLA) — The first cruise ship to travel from the United States to Cuba in more than 50 years will set sail on Sunday.

According to NBC News, more than 700 passengers are expected to make this historic journey and some of them are native to the island.

Earlier this month, Carnival Corporation announced it will sail the Fathom ship from the United States to Cuba, with week-long voyages to Cuba every other week.

The ship will depart from the port in Miami and visit three different cities in Cuba, including Havana.

According to the Fathom’s website, cruises start off at around $1,800 per person.
