The 2022 cruise season is just around the corner. Have you considered a trip to Mexico? If not, you should. The country is full of culture and beauty, and a cruise is one of the best ways to experience it. If you need a little inspiration, take a peek at these three Mexican itineraries that are sure to help cure those blues that might be coming along with the start of winter. Maybe booking one of these cruises can be a great holiday gift… for yourself.
Western Caribbean from Mobile, AL from Carnival
Here’s a sailing from everyone’s favorite cruise line, Carnival. And yes, we know that the word “Caribbean” is right in the title, but don’t let that distract you. This cheap and quick cruise is a great way to experience Mexico for the first time. From the unusual starting port of Mobile, AL, you’ll hit Cozumel, a beautiful island right off the coast of Mexico. You’ll then visit Yucatan, a region of Mexico known for its rich colonial history. Some of the architecture in the region is the kind of stuff that photographers dream about! The best part of this itinerary is the price: you’ll spend five days on a beautiful vacation for only $239. There are plenty of dates; check them out here.
Miami to Los Angeles from Crystal Cruises
If you want your Mexican cruise experience to be a little more luxurious than average, here’s the choice for you. This itinerary from Crystal Cruises sails from Miami to Los Angeles over the course of 16 nights and features the amazing level of quality that the cruise line is known for. While this cruise does hit some areas outside of Mexico (like Colombia, for example), five of the days are spent at Mexican ports or cruising around the country. Booking starts at $4799, but it’s definitely worth it. Details are here.
Mexican Riviera: Cabo and Puerto Vallarta from Norwegian Cruise Line
Here’s an option that’s somewhere in between Carnival and Crystal in terms of luxury. This $664 itinerary (that’s the sale price, by the way) from Norwegian lasts for seven days and goes roundtrip from Los Angeles. You’ll get to see a few different parts of Mexico: Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. The beaches at all of these locations are ridiculously pretty. The price is right for the length on this one, and you’ll get maximum relaxation. Check it out here.
Mexico is a stunning cruise destination. The itineraries listed above will treat you well in 2022!
