Royal Caribbean International informed their travel partners that they will resume its port calls in Cozumel, Mexico, beginning with sailings that depart on or after May 24, 2009. RCI applauded the decision of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to downgrade their previous "Travel Alert" to a "Travel Health Precaution for Mexico."
Their statement went on to say "Like our guests we are anxious to return to Mexico. Until then, our guests will have time to fully review and understand the CDC's decision." The ships with Cozumel port calls include Freedom of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas, and Enchantment of the Seas.
Mariner of the Seas will continue its modified Pacific Northwest itinerary, up to and including, its June 14 sailing. RCI will continue to utilize the Influenza Prevention and Response Plans, which their office of Medical and Public Health developed in coordination with the CDC and other health experts. The plan is based on three pillars: Preparedness and Communication; Surveillance and Detection; and Response and Containment.
