Thirty calls are scheduled for the 2017-2018 season for Acapulco. That is a slight dip from last year, because Holland America canceled eight calls when Carnival Corporation did not conduct its destination site inspection, despite being invited by the port, explained Alex Casarrubias, port director. “We are confident that once Carnival, as well as Royal Caribbean, visit our destination, their ships will return,” he said.
“Right now the focus is on Costa. It is a pioneer in the market and the market leader with our Italy at Sea concept. We need to make sure that is effectively communicated.
