American Queen Voyages has welcomed guests for its first Mexico and the Yucatán Peninsula voyage. After arriving in Cozumel on Jan. 4 and embarking on land tours, guests will be boarding the Ocean Voyager, formerly Victory I, today to visit ports and sites that include Campeche, Progreso, and Valladolid.

According to a press release, highlights of the inaugural voyage include a visit to Malecón de Campeche, a sunrise visit over El Castillio and Temple of Kukulkan, a visit to El Gran Museo del Mundo May de Mérida, and two nights at the Mayaland Hotel, a jungle resort adjacent to the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá.

The Ocean Voyager will operate four Mexico and Yucatán Peninsula sailings before returning to the Southeastern U.S for its roundtrip Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach) sailings.

“Expanding our experiences beyond U.S. river cruises to immersive international small-ship itineraries has been a company goal for some time and it is exciting to now offer our guests these new content-rich cultural adventures,” said Shawn Bierdz, the chief operating officer at American Queen Voyages. “Later this year we will embark on Southeast U.S. voyages, itineraries touching all five Great Lakes, an inaugural expedition season in Alaska with the Ocean Victory and much more.”

American Queen Voyages – which is part of Hornblower Group – has also announced its Winter Savings Event. To celebrate the start of 2022, bonus savings of up to $5,400 per stateroom are available on bookings made by Feb. 28, 2022, on select voyages.
