The Carnaval Elation, the second cruise ship of the week left little income for the artisans and restaurants of Progreso, Yucatán due to the fact that only a small amount of tourists bought items or visited the local shops and restaurants.
Waiters, artisans, shop owners and taxi drivers are hoping for better sales this Saturday with the arrival of the Crystal Serenity.
Ruben Martin, artisan salesperson pointed out that November and December have not been good months, and that even though 2 or 3 thousand passengers arrive on the cruise ships, most of them venture directly to archaeological sites, without setting a foot on the port, and out of those that do stay in Progreso only a small amount purchase any products.
The tourists arrive in groups and walk along the malecon (boardwalk) and the artisan flea market. Very few get in the ocean, no one is renting jet skis or even consuming ice cream. The only place receiving a normal amount of clients are the massage modules.
