According to a press release issued by Apple Vacations, Cuba programs affiliated with Apple Vacations will not be affected by the regulatory changes announced by the Trump administration on June 4, 2019. Apple Vacations’ Cuba Travel Services fit the “Support of the Cuban People” category which has not been impacted.
The regulatory changes do prohibit cruises from departing the U.S. for Cuba and “People to People” travel. Apple Vacations plans to develop new Cuba itineraries in conjunction with Cuba Travel Services to fit these new regulations.
“There is still high demand for Cuba, and Apple Vacations will continue to offer opportunities for American travelers to interact with Cuban culture in compliance with OFAC regulations,” said John Tarkowski, Apple Vacations’ President.
Cuba itineraries aren’t bookable directly on VAX, however, agents can contact their BDMs for more information.
