American Queen Voyages introduced the cruise line’s first Mexico and Yucatán Peninsula voyage, which set sail in early January aboard Ocean Voyager, formerly Victory I. Highlights of the inaugural sailing include visits to Malecón de Campeche, El Castillio and El Gran Museo del Mundo May de Mérida.
“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, chief operating officer, 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 Ocean Victory™ and much more.”
In celebration of this and future sailings, American Queen Voyages offers travelers a Winter Savings Event.
