While more of a resort destination, there are still plenty of things to do from a cruise. Mayan ruins are popular tours from Cancun, Cozumel and Belize ports. Tulum is a short trip from Cancun and usually includes a snorkeling trip as well. Chichen Itza tends to be an all day trip, but it’s worth it if you have never been there before. Ruins on Cozumel are interesting but not on the scale of most of the sites in the Yucatan.
