Many Western Mexican Ports Dropped by Carnival

While we have decreased our cruise vacation allowance to gear towards more land based vacations things have happened that I missed recently Like Carnival doing a serious decrease of Western Mexican Riviera ports of call.  Gone are Acapulco, Mazatlan, Manzanillo, and Ixtapa.  The cruise we did a few years ago no longer exists at all while another has been drastically changed.  Carnival has good reasons for the drops. Mainly problems that lead to safety issues for the tourists and are doing the best thing they can to keep their passengers safe. 

Now, our decrease in cruises has nothing to do with safety of this type of vacation, but more a chance to pull a few items off our bucket list (Ireland in a few months for example).  However, we still check back for deals and to see if new ports get added, just not as often as we should I guess.  Finding that the ports are now gone is a little both dis heartening and a good feeling knowing that it was done in the name of safety.
