The “Carnival Fantasy”, arrived from Mobile, Alabama; it arrived at 5:32 in the morning and docked an hour later at the cruise terminal. The passengers disembarked early, the first ones were brought to the archaeological sites, Merida and other tourist destinations.
In the city the passengers began to arrive from 8:30 in the morning, at that time they began to consume alcoholic beverages. By 11:00 a.m., the Malecón beach was completely crowded with tourists.
Lying down on lounge chairs and under umbrellas, they drank tequila offered by the waiters who serve the touristic area.
