At the previous cruise and expedition companies I used to manage, I typically hosted one special trip a year called The President’s Cruise. I would reserve my time for what I thought were the best and most exciting trips on offer.
So, when choosing my first President’s Cruise for Victory Cruise Lines, the choice was relatively easy: The Cruise & Land Safari to the Yucatan Peninsula! This brand-new trip will have its inaugural voyage in January 2019. I visited the Yucatan Peninsula back in January 2012, and it was an unforgettable experience. I loved the amazing Maya archeological sites, Tulum with its beautiful beach setting, and of course, the magical pyramids of Chichen Itza. Not to mention the fantastic natural wonders of the blue-watered cenotes. And of course, the incredible food and the wonderful people of Mexico!
Yucatan Cruise & Land Safari
Our Victory Experience is all about surprising and delighting our customers. For this new voyage, we haven’t just included some “standard” excursions, we will do this differently. For example, we included an early morning private sunrise visit to Chichen Itza, before the big crowds will arrive. Also, a “Nolo Spiritual Adventure”, a traditional Mayan healing ritual and purification performed by a real local shaman. We include unique cultural shows, like the sound & light show at Chichen Itza and the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular. We also have included a complete culinary adventure by visiting some of the best Yucatan restaurants, a chance for our guests to experience the local cuisine – a perfect blend between the Mayan and Spanish heritage.
Why don’t you join me on this wonderful cultural experience? Drinks will be on me, although they are always included at Victory Cruise Lines. See you in January!
