Norwegian Prima arrives for the first time in Yucatan
November 01, 2022

The Naviera's new cruise ship arrived with 2,306 passengers and 1,529 crew members on board

Last weekend, Puerto Progreso received the Norwegian Prima cruise ship for the first time, with a total of 2,306 passengers and 1,529 crew members on board, which left an important economic spill in favor of Yucatecan families.  

According to the indicators, until this September of the present, 72 cruise ships from the shipping companies Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Silversea Cruises, American Queen Voyages, Mystic Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Disney Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, Compagnie du Ponant and Norwegian, bringing with them a total of 172,820 passengers, who have left benefits for the entity. By the end of the year, the arrival of 28 more vessels is expected; while, for 2023, the arrival of 79 cruise ships with an estimated 197,600 passengers is scheduled so far. 

It should be noted that the fact that the shipping companies continue to consider Yucatan within their routes and that there are even more routes and more shipping companies, is due to the strategies of the Government of Yucatan, which has been led by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal to promote the reactivation of the cruise sector, through the State Tourism Development Secretariat (Sefotur). The port of arrival in Progreso has made important changes to its structure, which has allowed the arrival of large ships with cruise passengers from all over the world, such as the luxury Disney Wonder that the Governor received last year, showing that the territory is at its best moment to continue, through this type of tourism, more and greater economic benefits for the entity. 

Aware of the importance of tourism for the entity, the State Government has opted to improve the infrastructure of Puerto Progreso, in order to offer attractions and unique experiences for visitors, an example of this is the recently opened Meteorite Museum "The Origin of new life", a recreational space that makes its visitors aware of the biological history of the world since the impact of the meteorite 66 million years ago.

Undoubtedly, new investments in the region such as the construction of the Fincantieri Shipyard will continue to attract more and better boats which will bring the vast tourist offer of Yucatan closer to the rest of the world, as a result of the creation of better tourist services that benefit the entity and its inhabitants.  

Yucatan today is a destination that has it all, which makes it attractive for many sectors; since it has beautiful beaches, invaluable architecture and archeology for humanity, as well as an amazing local gastronomy that fuses flavors and textures, positioning the entity as one of the favorite gastro-tourist destinations for travelers, it is also important to note that the entity is considered one of the safest destinations in the country, recently ratified by the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP).
