Carnival Corporation – the company that owns 10 different cruise brands, including Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard Line, and Princess Cruises – has invested more than $20 million to add a new berth at Puerta Maya, the company’s destination in Cozumel, Mexico.
Now, three ships can visit what’s already the Caribbean’s most popular cruise destination at the same time. In 2014, about 1.5 million passengers traveling on 25 different ships from six of Carnival Corporation’s cruise lines visited Puerta Maya – when only two berths were operating.
I have been to Cozumel more time than I would like to count. I do remember last year seeing this new pier being built. It will be interesting to see how this added capacity will do for the local economy.
My favorite activity in Cozumel is to go snorkeling but the next cruise that I am going on that has a Cozumel stop, my wife and I will be taking a island tour.
