The vessel was supposed to call at a number of Mexico ports but had to be diverted north after Willa moved ashore on Tuesday southeast of Mazatlan as Category 3 hurricane. Ship's original itinerary included as call ports Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas.
As a result, over 4,000 passengers disembarked in San Diego.
Hurricane's winds at landfall were estimated 120 mph. The hurricane has since been downgraded to tropical storm.
