A Mexican Adventure

January 21-26, 2019

Hola! Are you ready to take a Mexican adventure with MTQ? Then mark your calendars for January 21 - 26, 2019! From Tampa, Florida we'll sail away on Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas for Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. In these ports of call, you'll have the opportunity to tour Mayan Ruins dating back to 1250 A.D., relax on white sandy beaches or sample locally grown pinnapple, fresh from the tree. Cozumel is one of our favorite ports. Separated from the mainland by the Cozumel Channel, you have the option to explore the island or take an excursion to the mainland. In recent years, we've seen more and more excursions take people by ferry to the Yucatan Penisula and enjoy sites like Coba, Tulum and even Cancun. When we arrive in Costa Maya, you'll step into a port created just for cruise passengers, yet, with an authentic Mexican flare. The tourist area is built to resemble the ancient Mayan temples of old and offers a variety of activities such as water sports, historic tours, family friendly areas and of course, white sandy beaches. Choose MTQ as your host group and we'll throw in a special gift and private concert, only avaiable to those who cruise with us! What could be more fun than that? How about closing down the casinos and bars so we can fill every theater with Gospel Music, Christian Comedy and Bible Studies with some of your favorite preachers? On Singing at Sea, it’s true! We want to take your family on a cruise that will build your walk with God, provide luxury accommodations for your enjoyment and ports of call where you can experience a beautiful piece of God’s creation.

Join over 25 of your favorite Southern Gospel Music groups on a family-friendly Christian cruise vacation to the Key West & Cozumel. TEMPLETON TOURS has chartered Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas for this Southern Gospel Music Cruise. The bars, casinos, and slot machines will be closed and there will be over 60 concerts performed by THE BEST IN SOUTHERN GOSPEL MUSIC along with inspired preaching of the gospel. Everyone onboard will be a part of this Christian cruise vacation. This is the perfect vacation for a Christian family. You will enjoy comedy, preaching, and multiple Southern Gospel concerts in 4 different venues around the ship. The week is yours to relax and enjoy vacationing in a Christian atmosphere.
