New Details Emerge from Vidanta Cruise’s First Luxury Cruise Ship

The tourism industry is eagerly awaiting more information about the first luxury cruise ship from Vidanta Cruises, with new leaked details painting a picture of a vessel where no expenses are spared. The travel and tourism sector has flourished significantly; in 2017 it grew by 4.6%. According to Statista, by 2030, international tourist arrivals are expected to exceed 1.8 billion. The tourism industry shows no signs of slowing down, rather an expansion is clearly in the future.

With over 70% of our planet covered in water, it only makes sense to reach beyond the confining boundaries of land and explore the vast sea. The number of ocean cruise passengers worldwide is an incredible 24.7 million, with revenue of the cruise industry worldwide at 35.5 billion USD. There are numerous cruise ships delving into the immense sparkling waters worldwide but there has yet to be a cruise ship line from Mexico. Vidanta Cruises is looking to change that.

Grupo Vidanta, Mexico's premiere luxury resort developer, owns and operates over 30 hotels and resorts along Mexico’s most coveted coastlines in seven destinations. Founded in 1974, Grupo Vidanta is Mexico and Latin America’s preeminent full-service tourism developer, with AAA Five Diamond award-winning resorts. Through innovative partnerships, Vidanta has broken the mold of expectations set for resorts by collaborating with top companies like Cirque du Soleil and Hakkasan Group to create one-of-a-kind experiences that were previously unavailable. Now the company is turning its sights and bringing to bear its considerable experience in delighting vacationers to the waters with a new segment of luxury cruise ships.

Based on leaked information, the inaugural Vidanta Cruise ship will be completely brand new with the only used items being the hull from 1990 which has been carefully and completely restored. The cruise ship will be the first ever cruise line for the country of Mexico, which is why sources say the company has been engaging with top designers in the industry to produce a ship that’s stated to be “the first of its kind” and the standard-bearer for the entire Mexican tourism industry.

Sources close to the matter reveal that the work is currently being done in Europe at the finest shipyards, but the majority of it will eventually shift directly to Mexico to allow for superior quality control. The size of the ship is believed to incorporate approximately 4600 sqm of public areas fully equipped with various dining spaces, 10 bars and lounges, a spa that’s twice as big and much more. The size of the ship will allow for an exploration of Earth’s hidden gems by discovering uninhabited coves and other areas not typically available to cruise ships. The Vidanta Cruise ship promises to be an incredibly intimate experience that will do away with traditional preconceptions of what “cruising” entails by having a nearly one to one ratio of staff per guest, ensuring personalized service for the most discriminating guest.

For over 40 years, Grupo Vidanta has heartily focused on inspiring generations of happiness through their uniquely incomparable vacation destinations. With the launch of a groundbreaking cruise line, Vidanta Cruises is on a path to offer a fully immersive experience that embodies the ultimate encapsulation of Earth’s rare beauty and visions that are currently just beyond our grasp. Given the leaked information, the high expectations of Vidanta Cruises are sure to be met and surpassed if their award-winning resorts serve as any proof of their unwavering commitment to top-tier hospitality, splendor and their unique ability to create everlasting memories.
