More cruise passengers for Progreso next year

Carnival Cruise Line will bring more passengers to Progreso as it raises the number of cabins devoted to short cruises out of Galveston and New Orleans.

The short cruises out of New Orleans and Galveston include stops on Cozumel and Progreso or Costa Maya.

Carnival Valor will increase its current 2,974 passenger capacity by 10 percent, while the 3,646 passenger Carnival Dream will increase capacity by 22 percent. The increase in passenger capacity will apply to the line’s four and five-day itineraries.

Carnival Dream ship out of Galveston will replace the Valor and join Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista for the fall of 2018. The Valor will be re-positioned to New Orleans to replace the Carnival Triumph.

Of these increases, the four-day cruise that departs Thursdays will visit the island of Cozumel, bringing with it an additional 200 passengers. The five-day voyages that leave Mondays and Saturdays will also see a passenger increase when they stop at Cozumel and Progreso or Costa Maya.
