First Mexican cruise line.

At last, Mexico will launch their own cruise line called Ocean Star Cruises with their main offices based in Mexico City and in Guadalajara.  For the time being, their ship, Ocean Star Pacific, will be sailing the Pacific with ports like Acapulco, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Cabo San Lucas, Huatulco and Puerto Chiapas. 

Ocean Star Cruises will include round trip coach transfers from the two main cities in Mexico, Guadalajara and Mexico City, which are both deep in the middle of the country. 

At the moment, it is said that, “The Mexican Riviera ports are losing Royal Caribbean’s year-round business, Princess has sharply reduced capacity and Carnival Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Line are withdrawing ships.”  This will leave a huge gap in the market and hopefully, Ocean Star Cruises will fill this gap to the rim.

Their ship, the Ocean Star Pacific used to be known as the Aquamarine when owned by Louis Group will have Spanish speaking crew, all the prices will be in Mexican pesos and as it is only travelling in Mexico, there will be no need for passports or visas for Mexican citizens. As a Mexican citizen myself, the no need for passports or visas is a right blessing as it is an absolute nightmare getting a passport and getting visas in Mexico.

My only concern about this cruise is, will they have Mariachis onboard? 

Will they have the best selection of Tequila?

And finally, will there be Tacos al Pastor or Mole onboard? 

If these are included, then I am sure it will be a huge hit to the Mexican market.
