Are you a cruise lover or interested in experiencing one for the first time? If so, we have some exciting news for you that is in keeping with all of the amazing and continuing growth of Sonora, Mexico! After extensive coordination and lengthy planning, it was publically announced this week by the Governor of Sonora, Claudia Pavlovich Arellan, that for the first time ever, a cruise ship will be departing from Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point). The first cruise ship is scheduled to depart later this year, on December 7, 2019.
There are currently six cruises scheduled between December 2019-February 2020. The cruises will be through the cruise line, Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Great Britain’s award-winning, and most prominent independent cruise line. Each of those cruises will be eleven days long and will be highlighting some of the great beaches and tourist destinations along the beautiful Sea of Cortez including the following stops: Topolobampo, Mazatlán, Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Loreto, and Santa Rosalía. The ship will then return to Puerto Peñasco at the conclusion of the cruise.
The Maritime cruise ship, Astoria, will be utilized for each of the six cruises already scheduled. The ship has 250 cabins and can accommodate over 500 passengers. And aboard the Astoria, you can expect all of the typical luxuries of any cruise ship: leisure facilities, great dining, onboard entertainment, guest speakers, and more.
Here at Santo Tomas, we love seeing the ongoing growth of Sonora and our neighboring cities and look forward to the economic boost that cruises out of Rocky Point will bring! It’s an exciting time to be involved with the development of the area, and there’s seriously never been a better time to dive into business and real estate opportunities in the Sonora region, including Santo Tomas.
