Holland America, the Seattle-based cruise company will more than double its capacity in Mexico next winter with more departures and the deployment of a larger ship.
Holland America’s 1,916-passenger Westerdam will sail 13 week-long voyages to the Mexican Riviera out of San Diego starting in October through February 2017. The ship is taking the place of the smaller, 1,350-passenger Veendam, which sailed to the Mexican Riviera this past winter.
The Mexican Riviera itineraries feature calls at Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.
Cruise lines cut back on Mexican Riviera sailings at the start of the decade after violence in Mexico made vacationers wary about the destination. But a number of lines have been reversing course over the last couple years. In late 2014, industry giant Carnival resumed year-round sailings to the Mexican Riviera out Long Beach, Calif.
