We just found out that a cruise ship was scheduled to arrive on June 6th while we will be there. How long do the cruise ships usually stay in the bay and what is the town like when they are there Thanks

Rob's schedule shows the time the ships are there:

I imagine many people walking around with cameras and bags and hopefully shopping, eating and drinking.http://www.zihuatanejo.net/comunidad/cruceros.html

They typically arrive around 07:00 and leave around 18:00. Depending on the cruise line, the passengers might be bussed to Ixtapa or wander around town.

On my Homepage you'll see the link for the Cruise Ship Schedule that will show you the duration of each ship's visit in our bay. Since this is not an international cruise line and this is also their first season, there is no way to tell what town will be like during their visits. Personally I don't believe there will be much business for this cruise line and I just can't see them finding enough passengers to make it worth their time and effort to keep their schedule. I predict it will go the same way as the cruise ship line that tried to offer this type of service last year.

But... but.. but... they have an Irish Pub!
