Why ferry when you could fly? Well, while prices have not officially been set, it should prove cheaper. Another big plus: the absence of luggage fees. Travelers can bring more on board for less money. Which makes a difference for anybody looking to bring American goods across the sea for relatives or to just hand out to people. If you've ever seen the charter plane section of Miami's airport, you'll have a good idea of what it looks like to furnish an entire home via checked bags.

This stands as the next step in repairing the fractured relations between the US and Cuba, and in turn, opening up Cuba's tourism to Americans. After all, the literal rest of the world can visit Cuba without a problem. Let’s smoke a legally procured cigar to that.
