Cystal Cruises has put two new Pacific Coast cruises on its 2011 calendar, replacing two Mexican Riviera itineraries. The two new cruises, departing April 10 and 17, sail between Los Angeles and Vancouver on the Crystal Symphony and visit Santa Barbara and San Francisco, Calif.; Seattle; Astoria, Ore.; and Victoria, British Columbia. Crystal is the latest line to cut back on Mexico Riviera itineraries. In May, Royal Caribbean International said it was pulling the Mariner of the Seas off Mexican Riviera cruises out of Los Angeles, following similar moves by Norwegian Cruise Line and Carnival Cruise Lines. Last year, Princess Cruises eliminated 15 Mexican Riviera cruises for this year and next.


Carnival Corp. has ordered a 71,300-ton cruise ship for its German brand, Aida Cruises, to be built at Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard. The 2,192-passenger vessel is the seventh ship that Aida has ordered in the last six years. The ship is scheduled to enter service in spring 2013. It will join two sister ships, the 71,300-ton Aida Sol, set to debut in April 2011, and an unnamed vessel slated for delivery in June 2012.
