Nicaragua Closes Good Cruise Ship Season
The increase in cruise ship arrivals was partly due to the influenza A outbreak in Mexico because 6 cruises ships were diverted to Nicaragua.

The goal of the Nicaraguan Association of Tourism (ANTUR) for the 2008-2009 Season was 54 cruise ships and 60 arrived in Nicaraguan ports. While the influenza outbreak in Mexico helped in that 6 more cruise ships arrived, less than 54 arrived in the country last season, so ANTUR described the results as "successful.”
Guatemala's Cruise Liner season begins today, with the arrival to Port Quetzal of 'Norwegian Pearl', a 2.500 passenger ship.
The tourism sector expects over 70,000 visitors during the 2011/12 season.
Confirmations for the arrival of tourists ships in the 2012-2013 season have led to expectations of 50% growth in arrivals.
During the next season that starts in October 15, 180 cruise ships will anchor in the Colon 2000 terminal.
