Help me pick a port adventure

We are on the Magic 4 night sailing 3/19/13. This is our first cruise, traveling with hubby and 3 kids ages 9, 7 and 4. Our only port is on 3/21 in Cozumel. I was planning on doing Paradise Beach but I'm second guessing based on the fact that there will be 4 other ships in port that day. Carnival Paradise, Celebrity Constellation, Crown Princess and Oasis of the Seas.

I am looking for relaxing on the beach, good food (we don't drink so that is not a consideration) and something to entertain the kids. Nothing too structured, expensive and no long travel times.

Experienced cruisers please advise. Thanks for your help.

The fury catamaran is a great one and gets you off the ship early At least it does the six day Cruise.

Fury Catamaran sounds fun, the minimum age is 5 though. Other thoughts?

I would have to echo the Fury Catamaran it is great fun for the kids. With your minimum age crunch you may look at booking it outside of DCL?

I'm excited to see what replies you get as we'll be cruising with an almost 4 year old.
