On Sunday, September 28, the cruise ship Norwegian Jewel will pull into Mazatlán’s port and begin the 2014-2015 season for cruise ships making Mazatlán a port of call. The cruise ship has a capacity of 1,848 passengers and a crew of 848.
Before Hurricane Odile devastated Los Cabos, the 2014-2015 season was scheduled to begin on October 6 with the arrival of Holland America’s Westerdam. The Norwegian Jewel changed its port of call from Cabo San Lucas to Mazatlán because of the damaged sustained by the city.
Authorities with the Port Authority, the Ministry of Tourism, and City Council of Culiacán plan a special welcome to passengers arriving this coming Sunday.
