: : I wonder how the car permits/insurance work with this ferry deal.<p>I just got off the phone with Cecilia, the booking agent and she told me that the insurance had to be purchased prior to boarding. They will not be selling it at the port. She gave me a number to call to purchase the insurance and it was 800-434-3966. I was also told that if anyone is not interested in purchasing the meal package, food would be sold ala carte. And also the last ferry of the season from Cancun will be April 23rd.<p>: : TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 10 /CNW/ -- The Yucatan Express has announced
