Crystal Cruises Cancels Mazatlan For April

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2011 – Amidst increased reports of violence in the Mexican port town of Mazatlán, Crystal Cruises is canceling its scheduled April 4 visit there on Crystal Symphony.  The roundtrip Los Angeles “Treasures of Mexico” voyage will now adjust its itinerary to allow guests more time in other ports-of-call.

The new schedule switches travel days so that guests will now have an overnight call in popular Cabo San Lucas, with Crystal being the only cruise line in port for those two days.  Subsequent days will provide travelers with a full day in Loreto, and a half day in La Paz.  Full days in Puerto Vallarta and San Diego are still on the schedule.

“The safety and security of our guests and staff is always our top priority,” says Crystal’s Vice President, Nautical Operations Birger Vorland.  “After monitoring the situation in Mazatlán for weeks, we simply feel far more comfortable with other ports of call in Mexico.” 

The “Mind, Body, and Spirit” theme of the March 31-April 10 sailing will remain unaffected, with numerous complimentary classes and presentations still being offered on board throughout the ten day cruise.
