The imposition of democratic travel rules and regulations to Cuba launched new opportunities and experiences for U.S. citizens. It also brought good business relations for both countries, creating higher means to accumulate and earn income. One thing more, it developed the avenues for United States government to assist and support the ailing economy of Cuba since the enforcement of the Cuban embargo law.

It presupposes that the relations between the two countries were back to normal. Tourist travels are still barred, however there are 12 categories announced by U.S. Treasury Department that can be legally permitted to travel to Cuba.

Cruise ships, though can accommodate a larger passenger capacity than that of the charter planes, are still costly and have a longer travel time duration. The request for other transport service to Cuba gave a chance for ferry companies to operate travel to Cuba.
