about

Sir Walter Raleigh left his mark on Trinidad during his search for El Dorado, the City of Gold. Admiral Nelson is a hero in this part of the world, such that he gave his name to a port in Antigua. He is rumored to have ended his days embalmed in rum. Peter Stuyvesant makes an appearance in Sint Maarten, where he lost his leg, before he fought to maintain New Amsterdam as a Dutch port. In Mexico the familiar characters include Cortez, Moctezuma also referred to as Montezuma, Poncho Villa, and a very young George Patton. Although Mexico is the nearest southern neighbor to the United States, few Americans can name two Mexican states and most have very little knowledge of Mexico’s history. CTH offers a brief history of Mexico for gringos traveling from Gulf ports on the Atlantic to ports of the Pacific. As in other itineraries in this series, the stories in Cruise through History are chosen to entertain the traveler. The history of each of the countries in an itinerary cannot be fully represented in a few short stories. Cruise itineraries are chosen to give guests an enriching visit, even if only for a short stay. A Cruise through History seeks to make the most of those short visits, to entice the traveler to return, and to enjoy future travels.
