Acapulco said the number of cruise calls scheduled for 2017 is up 64% from last year.

The destination said it has 28 calls on tap for the year, up from 18 last year.

The port authority said the calls are coming from a variety of lines, including Norwegian, Regent Seven Seas, Silversea, Oceania, Crystal, Global Cruises, Saga and Hapag-Lloyd.

Holland America Line recently canceled eight visits to Acapulco this year because of security-related concerns. The port said it had arranged a meeting with HAL executives to “present them with ongoing security advances at the port.”

“Similarly, a meeting is scheduled with the Operations Committee of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) to deliver a firsthand report on the operation of cruise ships at the destination,” the statement said.
