(NBC) -

Carnival Corp, the world's largest cruise and leisure company, will be launching tours from Miami to Cuba in May 2016, if they get approval from the Cuban Government.
The cruise would be a seven-night "people to people" tour that has already been given approval from the U.S. Department of Treasury and The U.S. Department of Commerce.
If approved, Carnival expects high demand - prices would start at $2,990 per person, plus taxes and port fees.
If the Cuban government okays the trip, Carnival Corp would be the first American cruise company to visit Cuba since the trade embargo in 1960.
