   Went to bed last night at 10 pm it was actually 79 F, we slept well until 5:15 this morning and still wonderful at 72F outside. Got a nice walkabout and some coffees and then at 6:30 at the buffet was open so we went for an early breakfast.
had fun here today
love our balcony room with a view
a tasty breaky to get us going
     Got a few walkabouts after breaky and before we hit shore. Gotta work off all this food. Checked out the fitness places but made good use of the walk track. after today was done I actually got 6 miles walked. Including a lot of stairs, being we are on the 9th level and other things 10, 11 or 4 and 5th level, but the stairs are good for a change we don't do that many anymore.
did catch a bit of a rainbow this morning a bonus
love this walking trail
       We were in port  Cozumel  and ready to disembark by 9 AM. So we headed from deck 9 to deck zero and out the centre gangway onto the pier and into town.
Suzie leading the way
welcomed by a mermaid

its a big one ship over 3,900 passengers and .
about 1,500 crew members
here we are
lotsa pedi cabs
     We have been here a few times before and seen most of what we want t see, so just wandered around because we could. Music atmosphere etc.. chat with the vendors and fool around with them.

   We walked quite a few blocks enjoying the stores and the weather until Suzie git too hot. So we hopped in a taxi and back to the pier where our ship is.

  1. Now that is a long pier to walk to get to town. Looks like you had a great time in Cozumel and a wonderful real Mexican lunch. Good for you for finding such a place. Just remember that the real Tres Amigos is the RV park here on Stone Island/Isla de la Piedra, Mazatlan. Keep having fun.

    1. It is a long pier but we were prepared to walk lots today and did get a little over 6 miles in. Yes there'll Tres Amigos campground is on Isla Piedra we had lots offun there, this is the bar though a long way away.

  2. Another wonderful day of exploring. Sometime even if you've been to a place before there is still more to see. Everything is so colorful

    1. Yes JO it was a fun day we enjoyed revisiting and the atmosphere,of downtown. we do enjoy and some real Mexican food..

  3. You guys are having so much fun. Love the boots. I think you should have a pair. You would find the real Mexican restaurant and not just the tourist places. Way to go.

    1. We are having a ball. The boots are fun but not too practical.
      The best places to eat are away from the tourist places we have learned.

  4. Looks like another wonderful day for you two! So much fun and lunch certainly looked delicious. Glad you were able to make it back to the ship without much wetness. Your balcony looks amazing along with your room!

    1. We are enjoying the cruise and visiting different places. We got lucky missing most of the rain, better than some people.
      The room and Balcony is wonderful too.

  5. From the pictures and descriptions looks and sounds like a fun day. I agree with Shirley, really nice room and balcony.

  6. Much different view entering from the cruise ship side instead of the airport. Looks like things have changed a little. They are becoming a big tourist destination. I just LOVE that movie screen. How cool!!

    1. It has changed over the years and it just a big tourist attraction now. That screen looks wonderful maybe we will catch a movie there.

  7. I like your room with the balcony. We went to Cozumel a few times several years ago and loved it. I found a bench outside a restaurant on the square and they served me margaritas while Bev shopped and I people watched.

    1. WE loving the rooms as well, we don't do much shopping but they do offer you free drinks in lotsa places

  8. Nice trip into Cozumel for the day. Love the bright colours of Mexico. There are always new things to see, I find, no matter if you've been to a place before.
    Keep on having fun!

    1. WE love the bright colours here as well and just enjoying Mexico for what it is.

  9. Looks like another enjoyable day exploring Cozumel and the Ship.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  10. We were in Cozumel on our last cruise. Your posts make me want to do another one for sure. Rain or shine its always fun. So nice to see you two having fun, although you have fun no matter what you are doing.

    1. Cozumel an cruises are always fun And you know we have fun wherever we go.

  11. That's a BIG ship! It can offer a lot more to do than the smaller ones. I think I'd be claustrophobic without your balcony, nice place to sit outside with a bit of privacy.

    1. It is a huge ship and lots to do , Our first balcony is a real bonus, but no matter lotsa place to enjoy pursed, inside or by the windows, every private spots as well.

  12. What a great time you seem to be having! Lunch looked delicious. The balcony room looks wonderful for sitting and reading.

    1. We are really enjoying ourselves so much to see and do,


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
