Carnival Corp.'s new Fathom cruise brand has hit a bit of rough water. The company is poised to make history May 1 as the first cruise company in more than half a century to sail from the U.S. to Cuba. But the cruise line announced Monday that its inaugural people-to-people cruise may be postponed. In a statement, Carnival said it's in talks with the Cuban government to allow U.S. residents and citizens who were born in Cuba to take the Fathom cruise too -- a reversal of the company's prior stance. Cuban law prohibits Cuban-born Americans or Cuban-born U.S. residents to visit the island by sea, though they are allowed to visit on charter flights.
