April 26 Update: Cruise to Cuba

We already have more than 40 folks registered for our Cuba cruise, Oct. 2-9.  Here are the things we have learned: 

  • A person born in Cuba can now return at this point.
  • Working with Educational Opportunities, American Airlines is handling flight connections to Miami. They do charge baggage fees.
  • Flying into nearby Ft. Lauderdale requires a $70 cab ride or $17/person shuttle ride to port of Miami.
  • Paying by check allows you to get the 4% cash discount.
  • The deadline for final payment has been extended to June 15, 2016.
  • Interior cabins have all been filled.
  • Ocean view cabins start at $2399 per person (based on double occupancy) or $2848 with airfare from Austin, D/FW, or San Antonio.
  • Additional charges: gratuities of $80.50, taxes of $208, Cuban visa of $75 (which EO handles with the cruise line)
