    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Wednesday, August 11, 2021 Galveston, USA Embark 3:00 PM
    View of Galveston, USA

    Galveston is a coastal city on Galveston Island in the US state of Texas. It is known for the hurricane that devastated the city in 1900, that is still regarded as the deadliest natural disaster in American history. This event has given rise to something unique to the island - the tree sculptures - fascinating works of art created from the trees that were damaged in the hurricane. Possessing all the delights of a small southern town, it is also home to one of the largest and well-preserved concentrations of Victorian architecture in the country. Read more about Galveston, USA

    3 Friday, August 13, 2021 Progreso, Mexico 7:00 AM 4:00 PM
    View of Progreso, Mexico

    Progreso, a small port city in Yucatan on the Gulf of Mexico, is best known for its 6km long pier where cruise ships regularly dock. With no resort developments and a tourist infrastructure that caters mostly to domestic visitors, exploring Progreso is a wonderful experience as it is still somewhat rustic and quaint. Its beaches are world class with palapa restaurants popping up everywhere. Indeed, Malecon Beach right in town is a wonderful place to spend the day if you just want to enjoy the wonderful weather and ocean. Read more about Progreso, Mexico

    4 Saturday, August 14, 2021 Cozumel, Mexico 9:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Cozumel, Mexico

    Cozumel is a Caribbean island just off the Yucatan Peninsula in SE Mexico. It has grown steadily over the years since Jacques Cousteau first put the island on the map as a sea turtle sanctuary. While it has great beaches, friendly people and safe streets, with prices comparable to other Mexican tourist destinations, most visitors travel to Cozumel to see what is under the water. However, there are Mayan archaeological ruins of interest at Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza, the first two maybe within a day’s guided tour. Read more about Cozumel, Mexico
