Hey that might be you up there!!! Those parasailing pics were taken right about 11 AM unless my time in the camera was off (adjusted for the time change).

Yea , you guys went to Paradise Beach right? We were debating going there but eventually the heavy crowds in port made up go with Nachi instead.

Bananan boat ride looks so much fun. I woulndt have gone with Sarah either I would have been too freaked.

Love the idea of a treasure hunt how fun.

Too funny, I'll bet they do!!

Yes this group was amazing, as was the group in my prior 7 night cruise. In general the longer the cruise the more active the group, often you will see more activity in the cruises around holidays like this one, or with specialty cruises like my previous cruise (which was a special itinerary). This last group in particular was full of folks really interested in doing some of the same things, doing so many of the port excursions together is not something you will find often in meet threads, though...even really good ones. My '08 thread was amazing, but we didn't do many organized things onboard or excursions (wish we had, it would have been even more terrific!!!)

More to come soon!

Loved the updates! Makes the 4' of snow outside better when I'm looking at your warm, Caribbean pics!

Man you DISers are awesome with all the events you set up. I wanna cruise with you all!

A Fiesta, A Siesta, A Piscina, and A Tequila! (oh my!)

A Fiesta, A Siesta, A Piscina, and A Tequila! (oh my!)

We left off back at Nachi Cocom where the mini pirates were plundering the beach for Capt. Hook’s buried treasure. Here are a few more shots of this fun, thanks Beth for providing these awesome photos!!









Back under the palapa....we were starting to get hungry. It was time for another round of drinks, and now we were ready to chow down so we ordered some appetizers.

Nachi has a pretty huge menu. Now, I believe technically you are supposed to order one appetizer, a soup/salad, an entrée and one dessert per person but many folks have reported back that you don’t have to be so limited in your food choices.

Here’s what you have to choose from: (the prices don’t matter, food is included with your admission price)





Another round!!





After about 10 minutes, Carlos was back with our appetizers. We had French fries, wings, and 2 orders of cheese sticks:






Everything was very good, but the big winner here was the cheese sticks! Oh wow, they were fabulous!!!



A little more relaxing on the beach….life is good! Siesta!



Uh oh, Sarah discovered the shower!



Our appetites were not whetted by the appetizers at all and we decided to head up to the pavilion for lunch. We just grabbed a table, and Carlos appeared to take our order!







We started off with some chips and salsa…fresh, flavorful, and spicy! But oh so good! We also had another round of the delicious cheese sticks.



Our entrees arrived shortly after. Ron and I both had fajitas and our verdict: Fantastic!!!!



Brendan had a club sandwich which he said was wonderful:




Savannah had a cheeseburger:


Sarah had a hot dog, which she didn’t eat too much of, because it came with mayo on it….weird. But she ate plenty of fries and even more chips, so she was good to go! I didn’t get a picture of it, but Ellen did!





It was an amazing lunch. All the reports you hear about the food here being fantastic are absolutely true.

For dessert, chocolate and vanilla ice cream for the kids, Ron and I chose the coconut ice cream. Oh wow, it is amazing. Creamy, rich, and full of flaked coconut!!!

A Fiesta, A Siesta, A Piscina, and A Tequila! (oh my!) **Part 2**

Everyone was already back at play, this time in the very large pool!









We hung out with our friends Joanie and Sam, and of course Ellen and Pods!








It was a perfect day!








Now at Nachi, as is possibly to be expected, the drinks don’t really pack much of a punch. So what were we going to do about that?



Tequila!



Things were winding down, the beach was mostly deserted by now, save for a sacttering of folks here and there. We had been the last ones in the pool for quite a while when we finally decided to bid adieu to Nachi Cocom.

They are so awesome here, they saw us packing up and called a cab for us. We had figured we’d end up in another van so we decided to ride back with Ellen and the gang but this time a very small car had come for us. So even though we were heading for the same destination we ended up riding separately.

And where were we heading? Three guesses and the first two don’t count…:






Ah! A trifecta!

We didn’t eat (or drink) here, just a little shopping. The kids had a lot of fun!

Afterwards , we headed back to the Magic. Margaritaville was a couple of blocks’ walk back to the port. On the way back I saw this piñata, it actually doesn’t look to bad in this picture because of the zoom, but from across the street it looked like a horrifyingly bad rendition:



Late afternoon in the streets of Cozumel:









The Magic and the Dawn:




Hopefully the kids did not have their fill of pillaging and plundering, as tonight was Pirate Night! Arrr!



Up Next: Yo Ho Yo Ho!

I have been faithfully following your trip report from the beginning. It has been so entertaining and helpful. I will be going on my first cruise in less than a month. Thank you so much for sharing your trip with all of us. Where did you get the cute dresses for your girls and the top for you that you tie dyed? I love the styles of both of them and thought I would do something similar for our cruise.

Ugh, I guess I'll encourage the kids to get chicken fingers or bring my own bun from the ship!
