Mexico will continue an upward trend in the arrival of cruise ships, but also in the number of Mexicans who want to travel by boat and live that experience, which is available to more people, says Ruth Leal, director of Princess Cruises for Latin America

Each year, around 160,000 Mexicans travel by cruise in different parts of the world, and it is expected that in 2019 that number will be exceeded, as rates are increasingly competitive and the added value of services, attractions, and amenities are still innovating in each boat.

Leal said that more and more Mexicans are interested in living the experience of traveling by boat and that it is possible thanks to competitive prices at a record level, both for families, but also for groups and companies that want to carry onboard conventions.
