Today the State Dept. has issued a warning not to travel to Cuba. All the info. is on the State Dept website. Hope this does not last too long as we have a cruise booked in the future.

The actual travel warning:

The attacks have happened in both the embassy and hotels frequented by embassy staff and to both US and Canadian embassy staff. Meanwhile the US Embassy is closed due to flooding:

Cruise lines currently go to a lot of places that have travel warnings. For a while, when we ported in Nassau, Carnival even gave us a printed copy of the warning the night before we ported there. The travel warning does not say tourists/cruise ships can not go there. The U.S. Embassy issues travel visas to the U.S. for Cuban citizens. Cuba issues travel visas for us to come into Cuba. They are still issuing the visas.

Just back from Cuba. First day we did a formal tour booked through NCL. That evening and the next day, a group of 4 of us wondered into town and walked through even the worst areas with no problems whatsoever. I hope everyone goes to Cuba and walks into town. We brought candy for the children and found a school to give it to. They absolutely love Americans there!!
