For a time it seemed that cruise lines had all but abandoned the once busy port of Acapulco. At one time Acapulco was popular both as a port of call and also a turnaround port, but cruise lines left as drug gang violence controlled the city.
As authorities have begun to again control the city, cruise lines have begun to return.
But a growing lack of security has caused Holland America to cancel all their calls in the 2017/2018 schedule.
Details appeared in the March 22 edition of Cruise News Daily.
