Cruise line switches route to avoid violence in Mexican town

Crystal Cruises has made changes to its itineraries to avoid the Mexican port town of Mazatl-ƒ~¡n after increased reports of violence there.

Its ship, Crystal Symphony, was due to call in at the port on April 4 on its roundtrip Los Angeles -¬Ë-Treasures of Mexico-¬™ voyage.

The new schedule means guests will now have an overnight call in Cabo San Lucas.

Subsequent days will provide travellers 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 international vice president of sales and marketing Philip Ordever.

-¬---After monitoring the situation in Mazatl-ƒ~¡n for weeks, we simply feel far more comfortable with other ports of call in Mexico.-¬~
