Norwegian Gem Makes Maiden Call in Puerto Vallarta

The Norwegian Gem made her inaugural visit to Puerto Vallarta on Thursday, Jan 17 as local officials boarded the ship for the traditional plaque exchange with the vessel’s officers to mark the historic occasion.

The Gem was just days removed from her inaugural Panama Canal transit, as 2007-built ship became the tenth ship in the modern Norwegian fleet to transit the Canal.

Puerto Vallarta was one of 10 new ports the ship is poised to call at during her creative winter deployment, with other inaugural calls including Oranjestad, Aruba; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Santa Marta and Cartagena, Colombia; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; Willemstad, Curacao; Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; Los Angeles; Manzanillo, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and Corinto, Nicaragua.
