Royal Caribbean has made the decision to cancel two cruises this week to Puerto Vallarta. One is for the Jewel of the Seas, and the other Celebrity Infinity because of unrest in the region and violence.
It is a real shame that Royal Caribbean has had to cancel two cruises this week, and we can understand why passengers affected by this have been protesting at the decision.
However, the cruise line would not have taken this option lightly, as they always want to keep their passengers happy. However, when there is a risk of violence, then the safety of those passengers take precedence.
The issue that some of them had was the fact that the area where the violence erupted was not in any tourist areas, and so cannot understand why the decision was made to miss this port of call?
