A bus carrying cruise ship passengers in Costa Maya, Mexico crashed on Tuesday and there are fatalities.

We are so sad to post that a bust has crashed while transporting cruise ship passengers from ships docked in Costa Maya to their shore excursion. According to ABC 7 at least 12 people have reportedly died and several injured in the bus crash early on Tuesday, December 19.

The bus was taking 27 cruise guests to the Mayan Ruins in Chacchoben when it flipped over on a highway. The passengers on the bus were apparently from Celebrity Equinox which is operated by Celebrity Cruises and Serenade of the Seas operated by Royal Caribbean.

Both ships were docked in the popular port in Costa Maya. Royal Caribbean is the parent company for both vessels and the company tweeted about the tragic crash with updates and that everything is being done to assist.

Celebrity Equinox is on a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise and is scheduled to be back in Miami, Florida on December 23. Serenade of the Seas is also currently on a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise and is scheduled be back in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on December 22.

The Costa Maya port put out a statement about the bus crash which included that 18 passengers were injured and taken to the hospital. 5 of the injured have already been discharged.
