Day 7 – August 16, 2018 (Thurs) – Cozumel

There was not much to write about today as we decided to relax on the ship. We didn’t want to walk around Cozumel or stay on pool deck in the hot & humid weather.

When we woke up, I called the spa to book the $99 Top to Toe special massage for both of us. I added a mini facial for an extra $20. It’s great that we could get lovely Makka again. Both my husband & myself loved her hands. We gave her a big extra tip on top of the automatically added gratuity. I had mine at 9:15 am & Brian’s was at 10:30 am. There was no one at the spa waiting room when I was there.

I went to have brunch at the World Fresh Marketplace while waiting for Brian. After lunch, I went back to the cabin to take a long nap while Brian sorted out our Vienna pictures to post on Facebook.

When I woke up, Brian said he’s hungry so he went to The Salty Dog Grill to get our afternoon snacks. We had those in our cabin.

It’s open seating for dinner so we could go to any dining room but we just went to our set table. I had Scallop & shrimps, it was okay. Then we went out to explore the pier area as it was less hot after dinner.

Carnival Paradise just started to leave when we were on the pier.

There were free pedicabs going back & forth the pier, but they expected a tip.

There was a ferry leaving for mainland Mexico.

There were many shops in the pier area. The new duty free shop had very good air-conditioning.

The waterfront had a big sign of the port’s name.

The area was beautiful with the lights.

We bought a few souvenirs.

I went to Del Sol to check the price of the sunglasses that I bought in Grand Cayman. All 3 ports, Roatan, Costa Maya & Cozumel has the price of $69 but I bought them for $50 so I was very happy.

We spent about 45 minutes at the terminal before walking back to the ship. Beautiful Caribbean Princess looked gorgeous with the lights.

We came back to watch the Mexican Folkloric Festival. The singing was just average, the band was not together & the dancing was repetitive. I’d rather watch the ship’s production shows.

We went to the photo gallery to buy our embarkation picture ($25) before going to Club Fusion to watch the country singer/songwriter Rockie Lynne. The vocal trio was well-harmonized. It was a good 45-minute show.

Then we went to the International Cafe to get snacks & coffee. There were still 5 coffees that we had to use up before the end of this cruise. We were told that once Medallion is on, we won’t be able to use those paper coffee cards any more.

We took our food & drinks to our stateroom and watched the movie “Eddie the Eagle”. That was a great relaxing day!
