Carnival Cancels Stops in Mazatlan for Immediate Future

March 7, 2011

According to a March 7 article in Travel Agent Central, Carnival announced that it will suspend stops at Mazatlan for the immediate future. Carnival said in Friday’s statement, “Due to recent security incidents in Mazatlan, we have decided as a precautionary measure to cancel our current calls there on the Carnival Splendor and Carnival Spirit.”  Carnival is currently working with the Mexican government and local officials to review plans for tourism security and expects to return to Mazatlan when they are comfortable with security measures.  It should be noted that there have not been any incidents with cruise passengers in Mazatlan, but cruise lines including Carnival,  Norwegian and Disney have canceled calls to the city as a precautionary measure.

    It’s very sad that the cruise lines panic when hearing of a crime in Mexico.
    Have they checked into the crimes in Miami? Should they find a different home port?

    Cruise Bug: Great question you’ve raised. Cruise lines seem to be erring on the side of caution right now. I don’t think cruisers need to worry about safety when it comes to Mexican Riviera cruises and hopefully soon Mazatlan will be back on the itinerary so travelers won’t have to miss this great port.
