According to Markets Insider, the Victory Cruise Lines has created a nine-night all-inclusive cruise between Miami and Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula that features three of the country’s most celebrated Mayan archeological sites as well as the cultural and historical highlights of the Mexican states of Quintana RooYucatan, and Campeche.

During the inaugural season — January to May 2019 — the package has an all-inclusive three-day two-night pre or post cruise stay at Campeche, Mexico, creating an 11-night all-inclusive cruise and land experience for the cost of the cruise alone. Guests who book a winter 2019 cruise by May 31, 2018, receive a $1,000 per person discount for a total savings of $2,000 per cabin.

The inaugural Grand Mayan Experience cruise departs The Port of Miami Jan. 4, 2019 on the newly remodeled, 202-passenger Victory II, the sister ship of the popular Victory I.

“Not only are we the first cruise line to feature all three states of the Yucatan Peninsula, we are pioneering the marriage of all-inclusive cruising with integrated land stays to get our guests closer to the people and unique Mayan culture,” said Bruce Nierenberg, Chairman of Victory Cruise Lines. “We’ve designed this trip in consultation with officials from each state’s government, ensuring access to unique sites and exclusive once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

The unprecedented access is a direct result of the governors’ and tourism boards’ efforts, and we are grateful for their cooperation and warm welcome.”

During the first season, Victory Cruise Lines will operate The Grand Mayan Experience cruises to the Yucatan Peninsula from January through early May 2019. The second season begins in November 2019 and ends in May 2020.

Exclusive features of the cruise include a private sunrise experience at Chichen Itza, an exclusive light and sound show at Campeche and a rare visit to a traditional Mayan healing ceremony.
