Carnival sued over Cuba ban on nationals

Associated Press Associated Press 14/04/2016

Carnival Corp is being sued in a US court over its adherence to Cuba's policy that prevents Cuban nationals from arriving or departing the island by sea.

Two Cuban-Americans are claiming their civil rights were violated because they were not permitted to buy tickets on a May 1 cruise from Miami to Cuba aboard Carnival's Fathom cruise line.

The potential class-action lawsuit filed on Tuesday asks a judge to force Carnival to allow all people of Cuban origin to sail on cruises to Cuba.

The company says, in a statement, it must comply with the visa, entry and exit policies of every country, but has lodged a request with the Cuban government to change the ship policy.
