Because of this new confidence, Princess Cruises will include two new ships in their Mexican Pacific cruises starting next year.
The news was announced by company representative, Santiago Gómez Salvador, today at the welcoming ceremony of the Coral Princess, redirected to Puerto Vallarta from Cabo due to Hurricane Odile damage.
The two new cruise ships will be Ruby Princess and Crown Princess, both with the capacity of over 3,000 passengers.
“Puerto Vallara is a very important port in Mexico, and Mexico is very important to our cruise industry, so Princess is back to the Mexican Riviera,” said Gómez.
Goméz explained that the first priority for cruises is always the safety of their passengers and that determines the ports included on cruise itineraries. “Mexico has been through some tough times, but now, fortunately, Princess Cruises is ready to increase tourism to Mexico with regained confidence,” he added.
During the ceremony, as tradition, there was a plaque exchange aboard the cruise, led by Captain Nicolo Binetti, with the presence of the port authority, tourism industry, and local entrepreneurs.
