U.S. visitors to Cuba increased by 5 percent in June (to 68,000), but for the first half of 2018 the overall numbers were down 24 percent. More importantly, during that period, half of all U.S. visitors arrived by cruise ship, up from one quarter last year. Cuba recorded a record 4.7 million visitors in 2017, including 619,000 Americans. But since November, when “people-to-people” trips were eliminated by the Trump administration, some 55 percent of Americans say they do not understand the current travel restrictions, according to a survey by Allianz Global Assistance. This has led to a 27 percent fall in interest by Americans in travel to Cuba, according to the same survey. The result has been a sharp increase in the cruise line alternative for individual travel.
