Yucatan Express has announced it won't resume passenger and car ferry service from Tampa to the Yucatan in 2003 on Scotia Prince. They say they can't get two ports in the Yucatan (Merida and Cancun were the ones they did part of last season, then dropped Cancun) and that it isn't financially feasible unless they have both ports.
Not sure I buy that, but anyway they say they won't have any service this fall but are looking at 2004. Stayed tuned. Info at www.yucatanexpress.com
