How would cruises that call in Mexico be affected by a border shut down?

Recommended Posts

I tried Googling a bit but didn't find anything definitive. Not trying to debate the politics behind a border shut down or anything like that.

If you miss the ship in Mexico and have no passport to fly..and try to re-enter the US by car is the only situation I can think of....

Maybe the Congress would change the laws that require cruise ship dock a foreign ports.

They aren't going to shut down the border. It's just political posturing by the President to get what he wants from Mexico and the Central American nations. Or, less likely but I suppose possible, he doesn't understand the full negative implications that shutting the border would cause. But even if that was the case, you can be sure someone will brief him about it and let him know so he doesn't pull the trigger.

Cruise's aren't like a "border crossing".  Wouldn't affect a thing.

The rhetoric talks about closing the land border, not the sea, so I would be surprised if there is any impact.

Not an issue for another year, as of today.

The search function on this new board still doesn't work properly for me. It didn't bring that up!

Hi

 

You don't really need the search function for that one...just look down this page a bit.

It is difficult to guess what effects there might be.  trump is the wild card and no one really knows what he will do.
