Available November through December 2021, the 11-day program will operate round-trip from Cancún. Highlights include the Mayan city of Chichén Itzá and the cultures of Campeche.

Bookended by Cancún hotel nights

The journey begins with a hotel stay at Cancún and an excursion to the Mayan ruins of Tulúm. From there, travelers will be transferred to Cozumel to embark Victory II.

The third day is spent at Costa Maya, with opportunities to relax on the beach, travel to the ruins of ancient civilizations in the jungle or learn how tequila and chocolate are made. From Progreso, travelers will take a day trip to colonial Mérida, including a visit to the Gran Museo del Mundo Maya de Mérida.

Two days at Campeche follow. After a day of exploring this fortified city, evening entertainment will include an exclusive folkloric show. The next day travelers can learn about Spanish military architecture at Fort San Miguel then take in the city’s famed fountain show and a Tukulna shopping experience. An optional premium tour visits the Mayan site of Edzna.

On the eighth day, Victory II sails back to Progreso, where passengers will disembark the following morning and transfer to spend a night at the Mayaland Hotel, within walking distance of Chichén Itzá. The day features a city tour of Valladolid. An optional experience tells the story of Chichén Itzá in a sound and light show on the Pyramid of Kukulkán.

The next day gives an opportunity to see the sunrise over Chichén Itzá and time to explore the architectural wonders at Ek Balam. The program ends with a transfer back to Cancún for an overnight hotel stay.
