Operated by the Carnival Cruise Line company, the first international cruise ship to arrive in Mexican Riviera route (conformed by Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Los Cabos) will be Carnival Panorama.

This cruise ship with American passengers is contemplated to arrive in the week of August 23 to 27, 2021.

With capacity for 4,800 passengers and 1,450 crew members, the Carnival Panorama is the current flagship of the Carnival Cruise Line company. 

Reactivation of the Cruise Ship Industry in the Region

Last week, the Administración Portuaria Integral (API) confirmed the arrival of this cruise ship, which implies the gradual reactivation of the activities of this industry in the region. In addition, API pointed out that both adult passengers and the complete staff will be vaccinated against COVID-19, which guarantees the bio sanitary safety of the international cruise ship.

“The Administración Portuaria Integral is committed to providing specialized attention to all our clients, improving the operation of the port and strengthening the infrastructure with the implementation of all protocols and sanitary measures,” commented the Puerto Vallarta API in a press release.

Finally, it was announced that the arrival of the Noordam and Westerdam cruise ships, which are operated by the Holland American Line company, is also planned in August 2021. Both ships will arrive in without any passengers-visitors to the maritime terminal, where they will receive port services only.

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
