More than 1,300 cruise ship passengers are expected on the island of Cozumel Friday. The passengers will be arriving by two first-time ships.

Vagner Elbiorn Vega, the General Director of the Comprehensive Port Administration of Quintana Roo (APIQROO), reported the cruise passengers will be arrving via the Norwegian flag cruise ships Viking Polaris and Viking Mars.

It will be their first time docking the island of Cozumel. The ships “will arrive in Cozumel Friday the 13th with more than 1,300 passengers, which consolidates Isla de las Golondrinas as the favorite destination for cruise passengers in Mexico and the Caribbean,” he said.

The Norwegian-flagged Viking Polaris cruise ship, which is scheduled to dock in Cozumel on Friday, can accommodate 378 passengers and 256 staff members, according to Vega. Viking Expedition Ltd. built the 665-foot-long yacht in 2022, and it is its property.

The Viking Polaris cruise ship will depart from Fort Lauderdale at 6:00 p.m. for Colon, Panama, and will arrive at the Punta Langosta port in Cozumel at 7:00 a.m., according to the itinerary.

The opulent cruise ship Viking Mars, which flies the Norwegian flag as well, will dock at Cozumel early on Friday morning, according to Elbiorn Vega. The 930-passenger Viking Mars will also make its inaugural voyage from Fort Lauderdale.
