UPDATE: 07 June 2019 - 15:00 CET 


In connection with the U.S. Administration changes to regulations regarding travel to Cuba announced June 4, which eliminate as of June 5, the prior authorization permitting cruise ships to travel from the U.S. to Cuba, MSC Cruises will modify effective immediately all its cruise itineraries previously scheduled to call that country.  
   
Due to these substantial changes in U.S. law and regulation, MSC Armonia is no longer authorized to call the port of Havana, Cuba, as part of her current Caribbean sailings.

UPDATE: 05 June 2019 - 14:00 CET


Yesterday, the U.S. Administration announced changes to regulations regarding travel to Cuba. Specifically, these changes eliminate the prior authorization permitting cruise ships and their guests to travel from the U.S. to Cuba. In connection with this, effective today, 5 June, cruise ships are no longer allowed to call Cuba after departing a U.S. port. As a result of these substantial changes in U.S. law and regulation, Miami-based MSC Armonia is no longer authorized to call Havana, Cuba. We will share MSC Armonia’s updated Caribbean itineraries with our guests and business partners by COB tomorrow 6 June.
