BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A cruise ship full of travelers returned to Port Canaveral Friday morning after never reaching their intended destination.
The Norwegian Sun cruise ship, bound for Cuba, was diverted Tuesday after President Donald Trump announced new travel restrictions to the country.
The new restrictions impact U.S. passenger and recreational vessels, including cruise ships and yachts, and corporate and private aircraft.
The ban steers American dollars away from the Cuban regime and its military and security services, who control the tourism industry there.
Cruises from Port Canaveral to Cuba have been popular since 2016, when the Obama administration started allowing travel to the country.
