First at Mahahual

Finally, cruise ships are back at the Mexican Caribbean. Mahahual received Celebrity Edge, its first cruise ship in more than a year

Costa Maya has finally received its first cruise ship in over a year. The Celebrity Edge cruise arrived in Mahahaual on Tuesday after sailing from Fort Lauderdale. It is the first ship from the United States to dock in Mexican waters since the outbreak began, and the first in 15 months to include Costa Maya.

Local health officials were on hand on Tuesday to meet the ship, which landed at 7:20 a.m. Before the ship’s 1,176 passengers disembarked for a day of shopping and sightseeing, their health declarations were examined.

The ship and her 744 crew set off from the Mahahual pier at 5:45 p.m., destined for Nassau, Bahamas. There were no health incidents reported during the ship’s stay in port, according to health officials.

The state is going forward with its reactivation strategy, according to Alejandra Aguirre Crespo, the chief of state health.

Mahahual, Costa Maya sellers, anticipate the arrival of six further ships in July and ten more in August.

They came to Cozumel too

Cozumel received two cruise ships, the Celebrity Edge and the Adventure of the Seas, on Wednesday, making it the first port in Latin America to do so since the outbreak began.

Mayor Pedro Joaqun Delbouis and one of the ship’s captains, Kate McCue, greeted the arriving guests, who numbered over 2,200. “Cozumel is the favourite destination for cruise lines and tourists,” according to Celebrity Cruises officials.

Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas, which also docked, is one of 24 cruises that will visit the island between June and July. Health experts were on hand to ensure hygienic measures were followed.
