For the past three weeks, all cruise ship excursions that involved a ferry to the mainland from Cozumel have been canceled after the U.S. State Department issued a warning to tourists.
The reason for the warning was due to an explosion and an explosive device found onboard a couple ferries late last month.
Due to the implementation of new security measures and the U.S. Embassy lifting the travel ban for government personnel, Carnival Cruise Line is resuming shore excursions from Cozumel to mainland Mexico.
Carnival Cruise Line Ambassador and Senior Cruise Director John Heald posted the following message on his popular Facebook page:
“You will be pleased to know that the ban on the ferries between Cozumel and the mainland of Mexico has been lifted by the US Government.
This means effective today we will be offering all those brilliant adventure excursions such as visits to the Mayan Ruins of Tulum.
Cheers and please do ask if you have any questions or concerns.”
