México has had highs and lows as a tourist destination in the past decade. Still, it won the popularity contest in an end-of-year cruise trends report by CruiseCompete.com.
It was the “most popular country visited” for those sailing on general cruise ships in the Cruise Trends 2017 Annual Report, which collates data for the last 12 months “to produce a snapshot of the most popular consumer trends in cruising,” according to the company.
The country has a lot going for it, including 5,000 miles of coastline, some of the world’s most renowned archaeological sites and Spanish colonial cities full of cultural flavor.
Mexico aside, luxury line cruisers were more apt to choose the United States, and river cruisers were more likely to choose Germany as their favorite country.
