Carnival Cruise Line unveiled a variety of longer, "off the beaten path" shore trips in the popular Western Caribbean port, as part of its "Cozumel Plus" program.
The new options, added to over 750 existing itineraries, include exploring the famed "Secret River" caverns in Mexico, visiting Mayan ruins like Chichen Itza and snorkeling in Xel-Ha Park. Tours span up to 8 hours and reflect partnerships with local tour operators, geared toward offering a culturally immersive experience. Carnival is extending time in port of its ships to accommodate the longer shore excursions.
Carnival Cruise Line is offering US$25 in onboard credit, per guest, on "Cozumel Plus" voyages purchased through April 22, with line's early-saver rates. Those passengers already booked on sailings that received the "Cozumel Plus" label have been notified - they can opt for any of the new tours. Pricing details have not yet been revealed.
