Docking one of its ships in Havana this month, Thomson Cruises marked the return of British cruise companies to Cuba after an almost decade-long absence. On a three-week tour of the Caribbean, the Thomson Dream carried 1,700 passengers to the capital of the Communist-run island. The Thomson Dream is the largest cruise ship to dock in Cuba in six years, due partly to a past comment from Fidel Castro that ships brought “rubbish, but little income.” American-based cruise lines are still prohibited from docking in Cuba due to a decades-old trade embargo between the U.S. and Cuba, but the arrival of the British-based Thomson cruise ship is said to be a sign that European cruise companies will be returning regularly, beginning with Spanish and Norwegian vessels.
