If you’ve not booked a cruise yet on this ship, nows the time to do it, you won’t be disappointed. 😀

Booked it right thru Royal Caribbean. With this port I’d recommend that. It was really cheap too, think we only paid like $28 a piece or so. Included the transportation there and beach chair. 

 

Thanks for the info! Sounds good to me! Now all I have to do is find and book a cruise that goes to Roatan. Our upcoming Symphony cruise is Eastern,  I'm almost wishing it was the western route.

Mine is Eastern as well but I much prefer Western..school vacations not cooperating with me this year! We really enjoy Roaton (zip-lining here is fabulous!) and Cozumel...so we are embracing the ship as the destination!

So last night when we made our Windjammer excursion I was on the hunt for some bread pudding for Trainman as that seemed to be one of his favorites he mentioned or talked about when he couldn’t get it in his reviews. Well I was unsuccessful. I’ll check again today as I may have just missed it.

We’ve docked in Cozumel and have been cleared to go ashore if we choose, it’s a bit moist and overcast today. 

 

 

Yeah I know I used the word moist again. 😀

Today we have the Cozumel Bar Hop, should still be a good time dispite it being moist outside.

So I know we have Tapatalk back and ability to use it, but I’m finding now in some ways it’s easier to use the web version. Though maybe once they fix the Tapatalk log out issue it will be easier again. 

 

I didn't use the App on my last review because of the log out issue. PITA and I had to login two times in a row to get it to connect. The new format is OK for reviews, and is even better when you get the hang of it.

Do they only have the plain Lays or do they have others, such as Salt and Vinegar, Doritos etc? Harmony only ever had plain but Allure still has multiple flavours.  Asking for a friend.😉

I am totally enjoying your day by day review.  We will be going to Costa Maya on Allure and from your pictures, it looks like it is a long walk from the ship to the shopping/pool area.  Is there any sort of transportation to get from the ship to that area such as the bicycle/carts in Cozumel?

 

I haven't been to Costa Maya in many years and am looking forward to seeing the changes.  Thanks.

I wish I could print the compass pages....

 

 You could  make a Microsoft WORD Document of all the Compasses for the cruise, and then Print the File:
 

  • Open a new file in your Pictures Directory and call it (for example) Symphony Western Compass Pictures from CC.
  • In the CC Thread Right Click on the Compass Day 1 Page 1, click on "Save Picture As" and "Save"  as Day 1 Page 1 to the Symphony Western Compass Pictures from CC file.
  • Repeat this for each Compass  Day and Page, incrementing the Day ## and the Page ## as appropriate.
  • When completed, Open a new WORD File and call it (for Example) Symphony Western Compasses WORD.
  • Sequentially Insert the Compass photos (using WORD "Insert | Picture") into the Word File .
  • Print the Symphony Western Compasses WORD  File.

Poor girl is looking a little rough around the collars. She’s been partying a bit to much. Good thing she’s going into a dry dock soon. After that face lift she will emerge a new kicking and perky lady in town the Carnival Sunrise.

Carnival Triumph is getting a $200 million makeover and a new name prior to its planned return to Port Evergladesin October 2019. The ship will be renamed Carnival Sunrise following a two-monthlong dry dock refurbishment in Cadiz, Spain, beginning March 1, the company announced Tuesday.Jul 31, 2018

Mr FunintheSun, we are doing this route on Symphony in March and the day time Compasses have been very helpful.  By chance will you be posting the rest of the evening ones?  Thanks.

On Symphony, the evening activities are usually on the same page as the daytime activities (unless they run out of space). On our January cruise there was never a separate evening supplement. They just use a smaller font.

How was the white party? Crowded? Empty?

 

Was quiet when I stopped by, however I was just checking it out and it had just started so am sure it was packed later in the evening.

During that visit to Park Cafe I only saw plan. Will check next time I’m there in case it was just for that occasion.

During our walk I didn’t witness any but doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. But I’m thinking that sadly they don’t. Thanks for following along.

Day and evening are on those, what they put in our room each night for the next day. Only thing I’ve not posted are the advertising and excursion stuff.

Enjoy Cozumel, it's one of my favorite places and where my desktop photo at work is from.

 

I agree, the CCL ship looks like it needs a major overhaul. Glad you are not in PR, where the NCL Epic struck the pier and took some away.

Have you checked the app to see if it’s already posted there?

Oof the Triumph looks like it is hobbling into port. I'd be pretty upset if I showed up and that was how the ship looked.
