Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The Puerto Vallarta Maritime Terminal is gearing up for a busy December as three out of the 13 scheduled cruise ships have already docked this month.
The Navigator Of The Seas sailed into port on December 1, followed by the arrival of the Konigsdam on the 2nd, and the environmental icon, Greenpeace’s Arctic Sunrise, on the 5th. These vessels are part of a fleet of 13 scheduled to visit Puerto Vallarta this month, with two double dockings anticipated on the 26th and 27th.
Notably, the Arctic Sunrise, famous for its global mission in defense of marine life, will be a month-long guest in the port. The vessel gained international attention in 2013 when 30 of its activists were detained by Russia while protesting Arctic oil exploration. The incident sparked a diplomatic conflict, drawing support from a dozen Nobel Peace Prize laureates.
The enchanting Disney Magic is set to arrive on December 6, while the Konigsdam will make a return on Saturday, December 9, wrapping up the second week of cruise ship arrivals.
Looking ahead, the Norwegian Bliss is scheduled for December 15, followed by the Crown Princess on the 17th and the Volendam on the 19th. The excitement peaks on December 26 with a double arrival featuring the return of the Carnival Panorama along with the Navigator Of The Seas. The arrivals continue on the 27th with the Discovery Princess and the Norwegian Bliss gracing Puerto Vallarta with their presence.
The city’s maritime terminal has been thriving, with an impressive 142 international cruise ships visiting Puerto Vallarta in the past 10 months alone. This influx has brought over 475,000 passengers to the picturesque destination, solidifying its status as a prominent port of call in the cruise industry.
