Staab noted the U.S. government is very interested in this new cruise, as surely many of the cruise goers will come from the U.S. With this in mind, and in coordination with Mexican authorities, they will be monitoring compliance with all safety and health measures for passengers to ensure the cruise departs and returns successfully to Puerto Peñasco.
