By now I’m sure that a lot of people (especially those who travel back and forth to Mexico) have been hearing about the Ferry Service from Florida to Mexico. It’s coming, it’s not coming, it’s coming, etc … and some have become of the mindset ‘I’ll believe it when it happens’.
Well, here’s an exciting update from the company ‘United Caribbean Lines’ …
‘Ferry Service to Cuba’ starting in the fall of 2015, with future service to include Cancun and the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico! Tentative schedules currently include service to Havana, Cuba from the ports of Miami, Port Everglades and Tampa Bay. As indicated on their website ‘Final Schedules will be announced after approval and confirmation from the Cuban and American authorities’. So it’s not approved or confirmed yet, but I’m holding on to the hope that in the next 9 months, we’ll start seeing/hearing from passengers sharing their experiences 🙂
The vessels are overnight ferries with a capacity for 1500 passengers and over 400 cabins and onboard ammenities will include but are not limited to:
- A La Carte Dining
- Buffet Dining
- Recreation Facilites
- Large Capacity Luggage Bins
- Pets will be allowed (there will be a special area)
I’m sure plenty of you out there will agree when I say that this service is not only needed, it is highly anticipated. How much easier would it be for us Mexico lovers to travel back and forth? Dependent on where in Mexico you are or like to travel to of course!
