Is the ferry to Playa Del Carmen free with Carnival??

Recommended Posts

I heard people say they 'charter the ferry through Carnival' and was wondering if it's free if we are sailing with them? I am planning on doing my own excursion and was wondering if there is a free ferry with carnival i can take? I'm trying to calculate expenses if anyone can please reply.

If you booked an excursion through Carnival, the cost of the ferry is included (Carnival typically charters a ferry for all those who have booked an excursion through them). However, if you plan to do an excursion on your own, then you will have to pay for the ferry rate.

 

Check out this link for ferry times and rate.

Once onboard you can book "Playa del Carmen on your own" for $30pp. That lets you get on the ferry saved exclusively for the cruisers and gives you roundtrip transport. You just have to make sure to be back at the dock to board when it returns to the ship.

 

You will be on the ferry with all the other people going on a Carnival excursion to PDC. We just did this last week (we did the Underground River w/5th Ave shopping tour -- I have a video, see my list in my signature below).

You will have to book a Carnival excursion to have the ferry ride included. Is there something specific you want to do in Playa Del Carmen? For me, unless I was going to Tulum ruins I would stay in Cozumel.

It's funny how these old posts take on new life once in awhile. I was going to reply to the OP's question in post #1 and then I noticed it is dated September 2012. :D
