Here is an example of what you might want to write:
Shar and Ray met while travelling on an escorted coach trip back in 2009. Ray was the loud jovial one that kept everyone on the coach in stitches and Shar was the quiet one firmly stuck behind the lens of her camera. Ray saw past the lens and was captivated by her disarming smile. By the third night of the trip, the two were inseparable and the rest is, as they say, is history. Now fast forward to 2018 and they are about to start the next chapter of their life as husband and wife and it just wouldn’t be the same without you.
Shar and Ray were vacationing in the Bahamas and as they were walking along the beach, Ray called Shar over to check out a crab from behind a rock, knowing her love for animals. But instead, he pulled out a diamond ring…of course Shar said yes!

The Mayan Riviera is located on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is famous for its beautiful blue Caribbean waters and stunning white sand beaches. The Mayan does have coral in its waters but this is where you will find amazing snorkeling! The Mayan has something for everyone! You can swim in the beautiful blue oceans, hang out at your resort, or venture off to one of the many sites the Mayan has to offer. Some of these include visiting Mayan ruins (Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum are the most popular), there are ecological parks such as Xcaret and Xel-ha, swimming in cenotes (natural sinkholes or rivers filled with fresh, cool crisp clear waters), take a visit to the islands of Isla Mujeres or Cozumel (voted some of the best snorkeling and diving in the Caribbean), just to give you a few ideas.

At the Moon Palace Cancun, there are excursions that you are able to use your resort credit for. Please see the resort credit flyer first before booking an excursion so you don’t book an excursion that you could have used your credit for.
The excursion company that A Whole World To Travel is partnered with are partly owned by Trip Advisor and the excursions are rated by people who have actually done the excursions. They have been in business for over 20 years and have the largest database of destination products.
A few benefits to booking before you leave are the low price guarantee, less money to take with you on your trip (safer for you), better budgeting of your trip costs, budgeting of your time in destination, trusted excursions backed by a reputable company, no disappointment if an excursion is sold out and many skip the line excursions exclusive to them so that you are not wasting valuable vacation time standing in line instead of enjoying the destination.
If you are interested in booking an excursion, below is the link. You can book directly from the link, check off the box to send a copy to yourself and to the travel agent. Some excursions are confirmed immediately (over 75% of their product is confirmable the same day) and some may take a few days. A Whole World To Travel recommends booking a few months before you travel for the most up to date list and at least a week before your departure. It is full payment at time of booking for excursions.
