When will Vidanta Cruises start sailing?
Vidanta Elegant sails in April 2022 from Vallarta to Mazatlan
Vidanta Cruises had announced its start in the first quarter of 2020, a project scheduled since the fall of 2019, was postponed until integrating the new Rockwell Group team to finalize design details.
Vidanta Elegant, former Voyager from All Leisure Holidays Line
Actually, Vidanta Elegant was built in 1990 and belonged to the All Leisure Holidays cruise company. Vidanta acquired it to completely rebuild it, which it did at the Cantieri del Mediterráneo shipyard in Naples, Italy. Already in Mazatlán, the ship received the finishes that will turn it into an ultra-luxury cruise.
Building a cruise ship from scratch takes seven years, says Iván Chávez, executive vice president of Grupo Vidanta and son of Daniel Chávez, president of the company. Therefore, Vidanta’s cruise line will be made up of repurposed ships. The reuse of the Voyager hull, the name that this vessel bore (and from now on will be called Vidanta Elegant), allowed the work to be reduced to just two years.
The Vidanta Elegant was rebuilt almost entirely in Naples, but the interior design comes from Mexican workforce, supervised by the specialized firms SMC Design and the BNB certifier, which cares for global safety standards.
The Ship, Vidanta Elegant
With 149 staterooms and suites, as well as a one-to-one passenger-to-crew ratio, Vidanta Elegant is a modern masterpiece of privacy and exclusivity. Each of the rooms reflects comfort, style and spaciousness with stunning views to the outside.
The reduced number of cabins offers a more intimate experience, as well as more spacious accommodations than suite-level units on traditional cruise ships. Guests will also enjoy the attentive service of a personal concierge assigned to their cabin available to attend to all their needs.
It is worth mentioning Vidanta Elegant perfectly incorporates Vidanta’s Extraordinary Standards, which lead the comprehensive health and safety systems of the industry. The result is the first cruise line with the covid-19 protocol integrated into its launch and operation.
Vidanta Elegant also leads the way in industry-changing technology by using medical grade PYURE filtration, a system that has been shown to eradicate 99.9% of all viruses.
