Carnival says it will delay the first cruise from the United States to
Cuba if the Cuban government does not allow Cuban-Americans to
aboard.

Cuban regulations bar people born in Cuba from returning to the country
by ship. As a result, Carnival had prohibited barred Cuban-Americans
from buying tickets on the May 1 cruise from Miami to Havana and a
series of other Cuban ports.

Carnival said in a written statement Monday that it was optimistic that
Cuba would allow Cuban-Americans to join the cruise by May 1 and would
begin selling tickets to Cuban-Americans. The company said that if
Cuban-Americans were not allowed to join the cruise, it would be delayed.

Carnival has been sued by Cuban-Americans claiming discrimination and
protesters have targeted its headquarters in Doral.
