World-renowned cruise line Carnival Cruise recently announced the return of its vessel Carnival Miracle to Puerto Vallarta. After a seven-year break, the cruise ship will begin operations in December 2019, departing from the San Diego Port and with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and its final destination: Puerto Vallarta.
Carnival Miracle is a 963-foot long ship with a capacity of 2,124 passengers and featuring cozy staterooms and varied onboard dining and entertainment options. Other cruise lines that connect San Diego and Puerto Vallarta include Holland America Line and Disney Cruise Line.

According to the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, calls to the destination are expected to increase annually. This year, a total of 144 cruise ships will make stops in Puerto Vallarta with 202,101 passengers onboard.
