4 cruise ships will dock in Puerto Vallarta this week
According to the Port System Administration’s arrival schedule, Puerto Vallarta will receive four cruise ships carrying tourists this week, which is the week before Christmas.
These are the Carnival Panorama and Diamond Princess cruise ships, which will arrive on Tuesday, December 19, as well as the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship on Wednesday, December 20, and the Celebrity Solstice on Thursday, December 21.
Around 12 thousand tourists are expected on these four ships, in addition to nearly 5,000 crew members, who will enjoy the city just a few days before Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
There are 11 cruise ships scheduled for the remainder of December, with two double arrivals (December 20 and 26), a triple arrival (December 27), and single arrivals on December 21, 22, 25, and 30.
The State of Jalisco’s Ministry of Tourism had predicted 380 thousand passengers for 2022, but that number was exceeded, and starting in November, the expected economic revenue of 500 million pesos was also met. As a result, 2022 was a bumper year for cruise tourism.
Finally, the port authorities stated that the international health filters are still in place in order to protect tourist service providers and citizens who benefit from the arrival of tourists.
