I hope that will help. Now back to some more pics.

There were suppose to be three ships in port but one of them was the Triumph. So it was just us and the Liberty.

I have a question about the dinner/shows. We have dining at 8.30 but I see from your compass shows were at 7 and 9 (I imagine my cruise would be very similar) that wouldn't work too well for me because the early show I'll be getting ready for dinner and the later show I'll be at dinner.... How long are the shows?

How was it getting off the ship in port? We have quite a few "non" Cruise ship excursions booked and I believe priority is given to the people booked thru the ship?

Did I mention that they sell Tequila in Cozumel and that they give out FREE samples?

We only went to one show and it lasted about 45 min. So just get dressed for dinner before you go to the show and you should be fine.

I am sorry but we can't help with this one. We did not do any excursions. We just hung around the ship and had breakfast and waited for the rush to get over then went ashore for a couple hours to shop. That's it. Getting on and off was easy the times we did. Maybe someone that has been recently will tell. Sorry.

Thanks for the review and all the beautiful pictures. I love all the food pictures, I don't do justice taking pictures of food so I don't even try.

We just have a point and shoot camera that has a food setting on it. It does all the work.
