2012 is definitely THE year for you to explore the Mayan ruins!
Hi, my name is Steve Parady. I've been on eleven wonderful cruises, three of which were group cruises I helped organize. On these amazing trips I've visited five ancient Mayan sites. I am fascinated with the Mayan civilization. It's absolutely incredible what the Mayans accomplished hundreds, even thousands of years ago. They somehow managed to build huge cities and temple complexes from stone without metal tools, without horses or draft animals and even without the wheel!
Then they mysteriously disappeared, (or did they?); leaving their enigmatic ruins to be swallowed up by the verdant jungle.
The Mayan calender points to a very special time, December 2012, when the calender comes to the end. Does this have significance? Is it the end of the world, or the beginning of a new cycle in history?
I'm sure you've seen photos and TV shows showing the amazing Temples and cities lost in the rain forests. Seeing these on TV or reading about them in books is good of course. If you really want to get a feeling and genuine understanding of the magnitude of these people and their works, you MUST go there to see and walk on and touch these ancient stone temples yourself. To me this was an eye-opening, even a spiritual experience.
I'm inviting you to experience the Mayan world for yourself. Travel with me on a seven day cruise to Mexico and Central America with four ports of call. Two of these stops have trips available to spectacular Mayan sites!
Of course I understand that many of you are very limited in funds and time. Don't worry this cruise is very affordable. I've researched the best possible sailings at off season rates on the best ships. You will be getting this cruise at an off season rate AT COST. You'll pay just a fraction of the usual price of this cruise at other times of the year, and still get the high quality and value Carnival cruises are famous for.
We're cruising the Western Caribbean on the luxurious Carnival Legend. This is a Spirit Class ship, one of the best in Carnival's fleet!
We'll stop at four exotic Caribbean ports, Mahogany Bay (Roatan, Honduras), Belize, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, Mexico! There we can take shore trips to visit spectacular Mayan ruins! Or if you prefer, chill out at the beach or shop duty free for exotic souvenirs and gifts!
Nights on board are filled with fun at the ship's nightclubs, theater, and deck parties! The food in the buffet and main dining room is to die for, and it's all included in your cruise price!
Exclusively only for members of Scicruise will be special programming, parties and events. The SciCruise program is still being planned, but you can be sure it will be outstanding. So far famous astronomical artist, author and space historian Ron Miller has agreed to join us. More guests will be announced soon! I'm planning a special presentation on the Maya and their culture, a panel on the frontiers of science and cosmology, and a talk by a veteran of the NASA shuttle and International Space Station program. Plus we'll enjoy private cocktail party to network and get to know our special guest speakers and other space and science enthusiasts!
I'm also planning a private shore excursion to the Altun Ha Mayan ruins in Belize, just for our members. I'm arranging for a local expert on the Maya to guide us. The price will be less than what Carnival asks for the same shore trip. This will be a great opportunity to experience the ruins up close and personal!
Or if you don't want to attend these panels, you can just enjoy the cruise, chill out by the pool, try your luck in the casino, get a massage in the spa or have fun in so many ways that Carnival is famous for.
