Ashore One Last Time

Chris and Mary
Cozumel, Mexico
November 11, 2022


Our last shore day of the cruise was in Cozumel, Mexico. Having been in Cozumel more than a few times,  Chris and I do not find it all that exotic a port. Yesterday was most interesting, however, in that there were six cruise ships in port. Most of the major cruise lines were represented: Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Norwegian, and MSC in addition to Holland America which is the line we are sailing with on this voyage. I was able to get four of the ships into one photo, the other two were further down the port.

It was a hot day away from the water in the markets. We explored tourist areas looking for some trinkets and gifts. It was enjoyable to wander around, but the aggressiveness of the shop keepers was a bit off-putting. But, that is how it is in a cruise port town. We decided not to take an excursion and we also determined that we were not going to head off to a beach for the day. We just wanted to be off the ship for a while doing our own thing.

Our day was relaxing and enjoyable. That is how a cruise day should be. 

Sunrise over the Caribbean

This morning I was greeted to a magnificent sunrise over the Caribbean Sea as our ship makes it way to homeport. We arrive tomorrow morning and our November vacation will be complete. It will be back to our regular lives. 

And as for regular lives, there is more travel in our future. We are heading to Maryland for Thanksgiving and a reunion with our family and friends. It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away.
