Going on the 30th, wondering if anyone went on the tour to the ruins and time constaints.
We want to see them and yet it quotes 8 hrs ,yett there only 7.5 hours? Also is there anu reviews out there have searched and none to be foound on the Glory, only rumors of it
being TOO big and the staff being frazeled, yet all of our cruises on Carnival have been wonderful. Thanks forthe info in advance.

I personally did not go to the ruins but the tour is offered. Don't worry if you book the tour through Carnival the boat will wait for you. You wont have time for anything lese though and it leaves very early in the morning is all I can say.

we went and had a great time.........a lot of walking but worth every dime....Buddy..

.P.S. count each step if you go......you have to climb to the top, just be careful, the view is unreal..........

By your e-mail it sounds like you can't look around the ground or is it a MUST that you climb to the top of the ruins? In Cancun we looked around the grounds and such but did not climb th temple with thr ropes to the top. Will to walk and climb around , but that was a bit much. My wife is a history major and loves the ruins in Egypt wants to see lots of them but haad been hit on the freeway 1-1/2 years ago and may not be so great on the back injury. Any advice?.

You are not requred to climb to the top of any ruins. In fact you are not allowed to climb on the ruins at Tulum for conservation reasons. The ruins that many climb at those in Chitzen Itza and not all that many do as it is very steep.
