Is the place that you went to in Cozamel part of Disney? When we went there it was to a national park with an Aztec sounding name. It was quite beautiful, but one had to be careful not to step on a sea urchin.

Your cruise is giving me vacation envy!

Makes for planning my day down right frustrating!!!
The jetskis were $30/ half hour (for up to 2 passengers) or something like $45 for an hour. We got 2, and then they gave us an extra 15 minutes because I gave mine up when pods' broke. And I KNOW!! The time in Cozumel made my head hurt!! There was also a daylight savings twist, I believe...so CONFUSING!!!!

Were you just smiling or taking pictures or were you at all worried that one of then would slip and break their necks?? I am way too much of a worry-wart to have boys, with their rough and tough play, as my children!

And please don't be offended! I'm not knocking your parenting...I envy the fact that you, and probably most people, can watch that and be totally okay with it. I'm such a spaz! Just looking at that picture makes me nervous! I need to either have all girls, or boys that are into theater!
First, I am soooo not offended (you are so sweet to ask!). I was NOT happy about what they were doing AT ALL- but Pods was like, "Ahh, they're fine" and really, there was water on both sides- one side the pool, the other was a "hot tub" that was the same temp as the pool, pretty much. I am kind of used to the boy stuff...all except the part when they hit- not that they do that a whole lot, but when they do, I FREAK OUT!!! Boys tend to do a LOT of stupid stuff- that Aston Kucher show doesn't have any girls on it, KWIM?

My Michael is a real food daredevil too.....he had the cheeseburger!

Mike and I both had the fajitas. Allison had something they called a fried chicken taco, which turned out to be taquitos. Pretty good.

On the way there and back, DH was hanging out of the taxi so he could get a glimpse of all the classic VW's that were EVERYWHERE on the streets. His first car was a yellow 1973 super beetle convertible and he is a big fan....there is currently a red beetle darkening my garage waiting for the day when he has the time and funds to restore it.
It sounds like you had an excellent day at Nachi! I would go back- I thought the price was REALLY reasonable- $49 per adult? Less for kids? It was GREAT!

I love Punch buggies too!! So do T&T- they ALWAYS play that game. I actually learned to drive a stick on a VW Beetle on Martha's Vineyard- so they hold a very special place in my heart, too. Good luck on the restore!!

It really was a very relaxing beach day, but loads of fun! Loved it!! It was really fun to keep running in to people, too!

Onto the cruise baybee!
You're IN! Maybe we could do an exchange- you for Tyler, who was an especially obnoxious 13 year old boy today! Ya think your husband would go for it? He can bring the mustaches for the Bat Mitzvahs!

OMG- that was sooooo funny- it made me LOL!!

We are raising our kids to party like rockstars....well, that's what it sounds like reading your post! We make them do community service and stuff too- last summer they worked with the homeless for 5 days in Washington DC on a Mission Trip- it's not champagne & caviar 24/7 around here, ya know! Just on vacation!

Good! That's what TR's are for- inspiring others to make great memories, too!

And no, it is not Disney owned. It was a Mexican business. Last time we did Chankanaab- we swam with the dolphins. That was a great day, too- did you go there? Or was it far away? Xel-ha? Xcaret? I think Cozumel has soooo many possibilities- it's a great port to stop in.

Your Buck is very handsome. I'm sure if you put out a salt lick he'd hang around all the time. And i'm with you with taking it easy on the jet ski, those things don't have seatbelts.

[QUOTE=podsnel;39518833]WOW...I am SO HONORED!!! And SO FLATTERED!!! If you were trying to make me feel really, really, really special- well- GREAT JOB!! You have!!

I am so glad you like my TR- thanks for crawling out from under your rock....I hope you'll do so more often. If you have any specific cruise questions, ask away!! I think it is a fantastic way to vacation, I am ALL FOR IT!




No problem! It really is a great TR!

I did a brief stint working cruises - so this will be our first cruise as a family and my first time as an actual pax! So it should be super fun! But I have a lot to learn about cruising on the other side of the elevator. (Crew wasn't allowed inside the "regular" elevators and the behind the scenes elevators dropped you off in the back of a kitchen and I was always scared I was going to get burned or fried while wearing a Carmen Miranda get up or something equally disturbing ).

Nachi Cont'd

So....really, I had no idea what time I was in- it was sooooo confusing. So, I did what any smart woman would do- I found Jen.



Actually, I didn't have to look too far, since we were hanging together in the pool. And I figured if she screwed up and we missed the ship- well, who better to be stranded in Cozumel with, huh? Anyway, here are some crap-cam pics from the rest of the day....

























We still had to do one more thing...





Where was Ron? Why didn't he join us? HMMMMMM????? Just one more of these....



And it was time to go. And let me say, Jen timed it really well, because we all got back into port with time for shopping!

Bye Bye Nachi!



In case you were wondering about taxi fares.from there...


Or needed directions...


The taxis were there right away, but we needed two to get back (one for each family). It was a great, great day- THANK-YOU, Ron, for bringing us!!!

Our day in Cozumel isn't over yet! Comin up next....time for a little shopping...OLE!

And ....GOOD MORNING, KARIN!!! Buenos Dias!

Good Morning, Ellen!

And another great update! Thank you! Makes getting up and getting ready for work so much more fun!

Your Cozumel day looks like a lot of fun even though I still need to figure out the time!
Love the pool photos! I never dare to take my camera to close to the water - I guess I need to get one that can get wet!

Oh, btw, Ellen I am missing you over at my new August pre-trippie!

Your day in Cozumel looked like a lot of fun, Nachi Cocom looked like a great place! Was it expensive? We went to Cozumel as one of the ports on our HM back in '03 and spent the day at Chankanaab, we didn't do the dolphins but I wish we did, it was fun to see them anyway, though.

I see Ellen already answered, but I couldn't help but chuckle here. After raising two boys, (and Ellen has 3) you get so used to what they do, you have to just let them be boys or you will have a heart attack! My oldest started dancing on the coffee table and jumping off at 15 mos. I went nuts trying to stop him - I had to keep the kitchen chairs upside down on the table at 19 mos after #2 was born, because I'd come back from changing a diaper and find him on top of the table.

So after a couple of years of panic, I had to relax and just trust they would be okay. I had a friend who raised boys ahead of me and she would just smile and shake her head and say that nothing a boy would do would ever surprise her - I would have to agree! Boys are alot of fun, but it is a never ending adventure!

Hi Rock Star Mama!

Your day in Nachi looks awesome! All-inclusive food and drinks, adventure and relaxation, ocean and pool - all wrapped up in one! I loved our Cozumel adventure, too, but I would vote for yours for next time!

Love the snow pics! That buck really made himself at home! We have alot of trouble with deer around here, too. The dogs looks so cute - Snow Buddies!

I was just wondering if Jen and Ellen would need "encouragement" since they weren't sure what time it was!

On the Liberty of the Seas, they had "Ship Time" which was EST, and it stayed on Ship time for the cruise, no matter where you were. I remember Disney changing time with the zones on our Eastern. Looks like maybe Cozumel wasn't playing?

Looks like Nochi was great fun! The buck in the back yard is very nice! I haven't seen any that close since we moved into town...

We had a good holiday, got phone calls from Mickey and Ariel, to which the kids didn't care, but we told MIL she was going too and she had the proper reaction.

That's an interesting idea...I would love for him to come back (he eventually left yesterday when Tyler let the dog out back and she chased him away). Thanks!

Well, you REALLy deserve to have a great time then! The people on the cruise work SO HARD- what did you do on the ship? Were you an entertainer? What line? The thing I love most on the Disney Cruise is the CMs- they go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time. It's wonderful to be pampered that way! And thanks AGAIN!

Me too!

Love the pool photos! I never dare to take my camera to close to the water - I guess I need to get one that can get wet!

I would NEVER take my good camera in the pool- it was a waterproof Olympus- a BIG necessity for that kind of picture taking. I LOVE those cameras- you never have to worry about the weather- rain, snow, doesn't matter, the camera is fine in all conditions. It's GREAT!

Oh, btw, Ellen I am missing you over at my new August pre-trippie!
OOPS! I forgot- but didn't I subscribe? Maybe I forgot. I need to find Rosie's, too....

I thought it was a great value- I just posted the price right before this. I loved Chankanaab, too, but I was so happy when Jen suggested this for all of us because we definitely wanted to try something different this time.
