Of course the Marines did not enter the “Halls of Montezuma” by taking one of the cruises to Cancun Mexico. They did, however, see some of the same structures as those now viewed by individuals who embark on such cruises. On September 13, 1847 a group of Marines stormed the aging fortress of Chapultepec.
Now a travel agent can not promise a professor of U.S. history contact with significant historical points during a Carnival cruise Mexico or a Princess cruise Mexico. A professor of American history might feel less than satisfied after one of the cruises to Cozumel, Mexico. Still a student of American history might add to the information in the history textbooks by taking one of the Royal Caribbean Mexico Cruises.
The American Marines had several engagements in the Caribbean. As early as March 3, 1776 a sailor had a chance to find Marines headed toward an island in the Caribbean. On that day, 270 Marines landed on Providence Island in the Bahamas.
Why were those Marines there in the Bahamas? Had they hoped to have their names mentioned by tour guides from one or more of the Gulf of Mexico cruises? No, those Marines aspired to steal some powder that had been hidden in a British fort there on the Island. The Marines secured a small victory on that day. They captured the enemy stash of powder.
The above information shows that an interest in military history or an interest in American history could well motivate a person to explore the possibility of Mexico cruise travel. Such an exploration might well lead a person to purchase tickets for a cruise vacation. That ticket holder would then plan to board a cruise ship to Mexico.
