Mexican port of call still closed

September 30, 2007|Diana Dawson

Hurricane Dean's $10 million in damage to Majahual, the Mexican port built for cruise ships on the Costa Maya along the country's southern Yucatán coast, will take twice as long to repair as had been expected, officials say. Two of the three berths will reopen in about a year, by Sept. 1, and the final berth is expected to be back in operation by January 2009. Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Holland America, Norwegian and Princess cruise lines have rerouted ships from the damaged port, but they have committed to returning for the 2008-09 season, said Cesar Lizarraga, vice president of marketing and sales for Costa Maya.
