Cruise ship arrivals increase

A greater number of cruise ships are expected for the upcoming season. 110 cruise ships are scheduled to arrive in Puerto Vallarta until May 2014. Miguel Angel García Beltrán, General Director of the Port Authority said that the recent promotional efforts being made between Vallarta-Nayarit have created buzz in the destination and an increase in cruise ship arrivals.
According to García Beltrán, this season will see the number of cruise ship arrivals increase by as much as 30 percent when compared to the same period of 2012.
In addition, the agreement with Puerto Vallarta-based Ruta Pacífico to promote the cruise ship industry are likely to exceed the past three years’ recorded figures by up to 50 percent.

  1. From my front window at the Plaza Pelicanos timeshare apartment on the Las Glorias Beach in PV, I can see the cruse ships enter and exit Banderas Bay, I have watched as many as three in the bay at one time. From the Jacuzzi atop the 9 story high-rise building, I can watch the ships docking and undocking at the marina.

    I have never gone on a big modern cruise ship, for it is not my style to be coopped up with a lot of people, and rushing on and off a boat of some 2,000 – 4,000 persons. The recent sinking, fires and sicknesses on these boats have convinced me I have made the right decision to vacation in PV on the beach. However today, there are large discounts on reservations available. Our friends in our folk dance club go on many cruises when the price is right.

    Actually, when the award winning movie Titanic came out, I did not go to see it. I did not wish to see an unsinkable ship , sink on its maiden voyage. I reckon that I had been a design engineer, machinist and perfectionist for two long to accept such an unnecessary failure and disaster .
