Here's the roll call forum for this sailing on the CruiseCritic Forums. This tour of Tulum Mayan Ruins is probably the one we're taking.  From the description:

Explore magnificent ruins in the walled city of Tulum. A scenic 45-minute ferry ride takes you to Cozumel, then take a bus ride to Tulum, and tour the site containing 60 restored temples. Your guide will tell you secrets, facts, myths, and legends of this long forgotten society. Marvel at architectural and artistic accomplishments in the temples. Conclude with a breathtaking view from atop El Castillo, 40 feet above the sea. Tour ends in Cozumel.

  • Scenic Ferry Ride: Enjoy a ferry ride from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel with the stunning ocean all around.
  • Ancient Tulum: Visit ancient temples and scan their walls for ancient Mayan writings and paintings.
  • Mayan Monuments: See the Temple of Frescos Temple of the Descending God, House of Chultun, and House of Columns.
$99/each + $7/ea taxi fee; bring SeaPass, ID, camera, water, towel, sunscreen, sunglasses.  Wear light clothing and walking shoes. And what about this awesome (but low risk, low time investment) snorkeling opportunity:

A world-class snorkeling site with superb visibility, numerous friendly stingrays and tropical fish awaits. You'll board the spacious state-of-the-art Cayman Explorer with its one-of-a-kind stern platform staircase that descends into the water, allowing you access to the Caribbean Sea. First-time snorkelers are welcome since the water is shallow. Enjoy the beautiful sweeping views from the top observation sun deck as you sip a drink from the full service bar.

$54/each; bring SeaPass, ID, camera, towel, sunscreen, sunglasses; change of clothes.  Wear swimsuit, coverup, reef shoes.  Beverages available (I assume we'd need money). More details to come as plans become more final.
