US-Mexico Ferry Update









In case you missed the mailing about the US-Mexico ferry, here’s what we know as of  29 July 2014 about the project’s status:

origOne very large remaining question is the US port and Yucatan port.  United Caribbean is still in negotiations with the ports and is therefore not able to declare the ports at this time.  As soon as the ports and confirmed and update will be sent out. According to Bruce Nierenberg, the company will have a nice introductory offer for our first time users when we start. “We will also have discounts. They will be based on seasonality and when they choose to travel. We intend to make those customers who use us regularly to get the best prices, best discounts  and the most benefits.”
