Magellan To Homeport In Acapulco

Acapulco, Mexico,  has announced it that it will be the homeport for Cruise and Maritime Voyages ‘Magellan, starting in the winter of 2018. The roundtrip cruise will depart from Acapulco and make stops in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas.

Cruise and Maritime executives also announced that the first stage in the company’s plan for expansion will focus on this route on the Mexican Pacific, while a second stage will include the Panama Canal and the Mexican Caribbean.

Magellan became Cruise & Maritime Voyages  new flagship in March 2015.  Formerly Carnival’s MS Holiday, she entered service in 1985.

Magellan is  46,052 gross tonnes, so CMV’s biggest vessel, carrying  a maximum of 1,452 passengers.

At 32 years old (in 2017), verses Azores at 68 years, the Marco Polo’s 52 years and Astor’s 29 years, makes Magellan their second youngest ship.

    Pleased to note that they appear to be keeping hold of Marco Polo. Contrary to what has appeared on a recent release (not by CMV). Let’s hope it stays that way.
