Feb 25, 2009 - Day 7 (Cozumel, Mexico)

Cozumel was very nice, We went on a sail and snorkel excursion, brought the cameras this time. We boarded the Catamaran at the end of the pier and promptly headed out to our snorkelling area, which was surprisingly close to our ship. It was amazing, many colourful fish to see. We did not even barely have to swim, the current carried us along the reef for a good half hour until they called us in to set sail for the beach. The beach was nice and although the water was cool, it was refreshing. The weather was a mix of sun and cloud, but warm....

Feb 21, 2009 - Cozumel

This is the mid-point of our trip. It is fitting, I guess, that we spent it on the island of Cozumel. Linda and I rented a scooter for the day, and I found that it has been too many years since the motorcycles we owned in La Porte to be comfortable riding on a highway on only 2 wheels. The boat ride over was very rough, as the wind had blown all night. The ferry had a band on board, and they tried their best to entertain and distract the riders. Several on board got sick, and I was grateful that none were seated near us. Despite the...

Feb 1, 2009 - Cozumel, Mexico

2/1 – 2/13 Continuing with our visit to Cozumel, we began by watching one of the best Super Bowls in a number of years. The first half we watched at the bar where they showed an American broadcast – and all the “free” drinks we could handle. The second half we watched in our room with a Spanish commentator, it was much better with talking heads that we could not understand. We did three hours of work during our stay. We agreed to sit through a time-share presentation in Playa del Carmen. Our pay included a ferry ride to Playa del Carmen and...

Dec 22, 2008 - We arrived!

Yesterday, being a very cold Sunday December 21, 2008, we arrived at Calgary International Airport at 9am with our flight departing to Mexico just after noon. I truly expected it to be busier than it was, being the holiday season. We were quickly through check-in and then through security. We now had two hours to wait for our departure to Cancun. While we waited in the half-full area of WestJet's departure gate, we were able to hear a woman share, with anyone who would listen or even those who were attempting to ignore, that she had been in...

Dec 10, 2008 - Cozumel

A few hurricanes have visited Cozumel since we have, so we weren’t surprised that we didn’t recognize the port area. There was room for three modern gargantua sized liners to dock. Colorful shops and restaurants clustered around the port area. It all looked freshly constructed and painted and amazingly neat and clean. Only later did we realize that the area where we used to dock near the downtown shops and restaurants was already full with two other cruise ships. The modern area where we docked would appeal to those who have been frightened...

Nov 20, 2008 - Swimming with Dolphins

Well today was a day we were looking forward to. We were going to Mexico The weather still was a little rough but ok. We were a little delayed getting to Cozumel but we were docking so that was a lot easier than tendering. By 10.30 we were on land looking for a taxi to get to out dolphin swim. We had booked it independently from the cruise people. So it was fairly easy. We needed 2 taxis to get all of us there. As soon as we arrived these guys place iguanas and birds on the kids and of course we took photos which then cost us $5 a photo,...

Oct 14, 2008 - Cozumel, Mexico

Last stop Mexico! We had our one and only shore excursion booked for Mexico so we were super excited - a catamaran tour, with snorkelling, a beach party and free beer & margaritas! The snorkelling was really cool, the water was warm with lots of pretty fish. The beach party was really good too, they had one of those water trampolines and we have both always wanted to go on one. There was also an inflatable ice berg that you could rock climb on, heaps of fun. And we got to lie on the loungers on the beach and drink free drinks! On the trip...

Sep 15, 2008 - Mexico - Cozumel

Monday September 15th At the moment we are onboard the cruise ship ‘Liberty’, sailing the Caribbean. Yesterday our boat spent the day at sea and today we docked at Cozumel in Mexico. Shayne went on a deep sea fishing trip, while Sara and I spent time ‘Downtown', checking out the many jewellery stores and tourist shops. We managed to refrain from buying anything sparkly. Even the lure of ‘tax free’, ‘duty free’, ‘special price’ for you because you are from the ship…because you are beautiful…because you have blue eyes…because you are from...

The Arnash Adventure

Apr 4, 2008 - Cozumel

Ten FANTASTIC days have already flown by here on Cozumel. We think that we have found the Northern Hemisphere version of Gove! The people, climate, beaches and lifestyle are just so like home. Within 10 minutes of arriving at our Condo, kites were spotted flying high so Simon ventured onto the beach which is a ‘very strenuous’ 30 second walk away (including getting down the stairs from our top story place). There we met a few of the locals who were so welcoming and friendly. Paco is one Cozumelenos who runs a...

Mar 31, 2008 - Cozumel/ Mexico

30. 03. Cozumel Ein wenig komisch ist mir schon als mein Schiff ohne mich ablegt. Aber nach 8 Monaten Arbeit auf dem Kreuzfahrtschiff war es einfach Zeit zu gehen. Ich habe jede Minute genossen, unglaublich viel gesehen und jede Menge neue Freunde aus der ganzen Welt kennengelernt. So, nun endlich wieder Reisen. Mein grobes Ziel ist Californien, wo ich ein paar Freunde treffen moechte. Das sind ca. 7000 Km und diesmal will ich die per Auto zurueck legen. Eine Nacht bleibe ich Playe del Carmen, ein touristischer Alptraum- oder ein Paradies,...

Feb 1, 2008 - Cruise 2 Day 6 Cozumel

We were not due to dock at Cozumel until 10 AM and we were pretty much right on time. We again started with our room service breakfast, but this time we ate inside as we were sailing south along the coast and our balcony was getting the full blast of the sun. The morning temperature here was in the low 80's and there was some humidity, but as long as you were not in the direct sun it was not too bad. After breakfast Joyce headed for the shops ashore and I went to the pool deck. I found a good spot in the shade and with a nice breeze. I was...
