Pullmantur will start sailing from Acapulco on May 10 with a 47,000-ton vessel called the Pacific Dream, Cruise Industry News has learned.

The ship will carry 1,900 passengers, which will in turn bring nearly 60,000 passengers to the port in 2009. The Dream will be doing approximately 30 sailings between May and December.

As for specifically what ship the Pacific Dream is, both Pullmantur’s Sky Wonder and Island Star are roughly the same tonnage and passenger capacity (based on maximum capacity) as the Pacific Dream, and their itinerary plans have yet to be officially announced.

The seven-day Acapulco cruises will begin in late June, and call at Ixtapa (Zihuatanejo), Manzanillo (where she will also embark passengers), Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas. There will be nearly 50 cruises through May 2010.
