U.S. cruise companies express interest in November operations

Cozumel, Mahahual, Q.R. — American cruise lines have expressed interest in resuming ship activity to the Cozumel, Mahahual regions of Mexico for November. The head of the Secretary of Tourism for Quintana Roo reports that via virtual meetings, the main cruise lines in the United States expressed interest in restarting operations for the month of November.

Head of state tourism Marisol Vanegas Pérez, reported that although there has been an expressed interest, such information should not be considered official, but projections made by the companies. She said that it will be them who issue the exact dates of reactivation, which depends greatly on the pandemic and the state’s epidemiological light.

Vanegas Pérez noted that cruise destinations such as Cozumel and Mahahual are ready to receive the ships, reiterating that will only happen once the cruise companies officially announce the restart of their operations.

Without providing names to avoid speculation, she said that she has been contacted by six of the most recognized U.S. cruise ship companies, all of which, expressed the same November interest.

Cruise companies out of the United States continue to wait for restrictions to be lifted after the CDC issued an extended No Sail Order in July.
