“Cruise ships, as well as recreational and pleasure boats, are prohibited from departing the U.S. on temporary sojourn to Cuba effective tomorrow,” the Commerce Department said in a statement to The Associated Press. The statement was issued on June 4 and gave 24 hours notice about the ban.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton declared Cuba part of a “troika of tyranny ” along with Nicaragua and Venezuela. He said the new policy is intended to deny the Cuban government a vital source of revenue.
