Cozumel Seeks to Become Home Port to Restart Cruise Trips

The Cozumel authorities, hand in hand with the Ministry of Tourism, propose that Cozumel be Home Port, to resume cruise trips, this after it was announced that at least in the first quarter of the year no cruises would set sail from the United States.

Pedro Joaquín Delbouis, Mayor of the island, announced that there is a proposal in which they would be working with MSC who already launched cruises in the Mediterranean and years ago had a route through the Caribbean without going the United States, leaving from Cuba, Cozumel and even Progreso Yucatán.

MSC has already successfully launched cruises after the critical part of the pandemic, so that cruises can leave from the Island of Swallows and thus resume the industry.

The Mayor commented that it is a complex issue, especially for logistics but they are working on it, since initially it would be one or two weekly cruises.

The cruise industry has not been able to start cruising from the US and these are difficult months for the economy in general of the destination, which depends to a large extent on tourism from cruise passengers.

It is an international decision to have the green light and thus restore tourism.

He has great communication with Washington, and the Joe Biden government, however, having little time in command, progress is slow and it would be the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that would give the Ok so they could set sail, something that was already indicated to them would be until after April.
