Day Three: Cozumel
March 9, 2018 9:21pm CST
Our third morning we woke up in Cozumel. Most of the people on the ship were rushing to get off so that they could take an excursion or to go shopping in Cozumel. We did neither. We have been to Cozumel before and I am not a beach person nor do I like to dicker, I just want to know the bottom line and that is what I pay. We stayed on the ship. After breakfast we went exploring. We went to the upper deck and walked around, took some pictures and enjoyed the bright sunshine. After that, we went and sat by the pool and read. The casino is closed when the ship is in port. We grabbed some lunch and then took a nap and cooled off in our room. I watch Victoria and Abdul on the TV. In the afternoon we took our books to the library and sat in the recliners by the windows and just enjoyed the view. We had a light afternoon tea and did some more walking. We enjoyed dinner from 5:30-7:30 and then at 8 we headed to the Thermal Suite, it was a tough day but we are getting used to it lol Photo is Cozumel from the recliner in the library

@BelleStarr That would be hard for me to do. Though I have done it when I went on holiday a couple years ago for three days. I didn't have a phone to play on, so without any kind of technology for three days, it was almost withdrawal. Almost. Where we went, my friend and I, we had a lot to do, so I only really missed it at night.

I've been to Cozumel before too, and like you, I would have probably stayed on the ship. I've explored Cozumel plenty of times in the past, so I would just relax and enjoy the time on the ship without thousands of other passengers all around!

@BelleStarr But the crowning is probably still similar on the small and big ships. On a per-square-foot basis, it probably still equals the same amount of people on board. Out of those 1400 passengers, how many disembarked to go into Cozumel?

@rebelann Not a dance but there were two gala nights where you can dress up in black tie and gowns if you want. We dressed normally and most people did as well. I don't have any formal clothes here in Florida and I refused to buy any new ones.
I was with my sister in laws, there were 5 or six of us and I think it was Cozumel - probably 10 years ago or more, we stopped at Cozumel and we knew there had been a hurricane recently so we wanted to see what a hurricane looks like, it was a mess but ready for any cruise to visit. A young man - with perfect English offered to drive us in his jeep - (no top) around the area on the island for a very small price - maybe $5 per woman. He stopped every once in a while to tell us the history and show us some interesting buildings. We stopped for a bite to eat and we paid for his meal, He took us to an ancient church and told the history, it was an awesome trip around the island, lots of damage on huts and homes, beautiful beaches... he dropped us off at our cruise and we all had such a good time, we gave him more money - he didn't ask for it... That's the only time I've been there..
