Princess Cruises Cuts Two Mexican Ports of Call

June 21, 2011 by
Princess Cruises is cutting ports of call to Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán along the Mexican Riviera, despite the fact that the U.S. Department of State’s omitted the two cities on its updated Travel Warnings list. Princess claims broad security concerns present in the region as the reasoning behind the re-routing, and the company isn’t alone in its concerns. Carnival, Disney, and Holland America have also canceled calls to Mazatlán this year, citing similar security concerns. The news of Princess’s decision has hit hard in Mexico, which just launched a weeklong anti-crime campaign in an effort to win back a portion of the tourism revenue it’s lost as cruise companies re-route. The November 19, December 10, and December 31 7-night cruises aboard the Sapphire Princess will alternatively stop in Ensenada and add a second day in Cabo San Lucas.

    So now Princess cruises roundtrip from Los Angeles to Ensenada + overnights in Cabo.

    Who’d want to take this cruise ?

    Unless you just want to enjoy the ship.

    Why don’t they stop cruising Mexico altogether or is it because they have so many ships, they don’t know where to put them all ?
