Thanks for chiming in. I can't imagine how packed the pirate buffet would be if advertised and with double the ship capacity.

Are you going to do a report from your Mother's Day cruise?

Of course but you know how I feel about trip reports. Would it help if I sped this up? I'm planning on updating Cozumel (the day part ) tonight.

Yay for sunshine! It's been so nice here too. I'm so ready for some continuous 80* days.

Hi I've been enjoying your trip report, but I don't post much. Just wanted to pop in and say that I was looking at the suggested packing list on the disney cruise website and it says "no sporting goods" allowed. Right below where it says no firearms. So I guess soccer balls and firearms are equally confiscated. Lol

and Thanks for joining in.

I saw where it said sporting goods but gave examples of like bats and hockey sticks. I'll get more into the ball situation but can tell you that balls are allowed and if they aren't, Disney is very inconsistent with the policy.

No no no, please don't try to be speedy on my account! I just haven't had much time since I've gotten back to start it. Two of our tablemates gave me their emails to let them know I'd started one. They were fascinated with my taking pictures of all our food

That hilarious! I love the food picture taking. Even our table mates got into it. Maybe like begets like?

I won't rush then but am trying to update tonight.

When do you leave for the wedding?

So we got back to the room after a very fun pirate night, put the room service ticket on the outside of the door, and saw the red light blinking on the phone. Ah a message! Maybe it was guest services and indeed the Port did confiscate Joshua’s soccer ball and it would be there waiting once we returned to Miami?

Or maybe not.

Or definitely not.

At all.

It was guest services calling to inform me that they spoke with someone at the Port and they had no record of his ball being confiscated. Disney also had no record of his ball being confiscated and indeed they wouldn’t take it as soccer balls are not a prohibited item per this CM.

So this meant that someone took the ball. I don’t know who or where but it was gone and there was no trace of it. We were less than pleased.

I called down to guest service to see if we could borrow a ball, got some song and dance, and my request was declined. Guest services 1, me 0.

Having done my homework, I knew there would be a Mega or some other grocery chain nearby. We’d go and grab him a new (cheap) soccer ball to have for our Mexico and CC days. He brought the ball for that reason. I told Joshua my plan and he seemed satisfied.

In all honesty the missing ball did not dampen our moods. We were heading to Mexico baby!



Cozumel!

We woke up early to the sound of a faint knock from room service. Love those guys. They are polite and mellow in their delivery. They brought the food in, set it up, and I tipped accordingly.

Here are the Navigator’s for the day. Now I would explain to you the time change but it confused me so much I can’t. I think Cozumel was naturally an hour behind ship time but we needed to subtract another hour to get the real time. No clue. LOL!











I had been chatting with Beth from here and our FB group and we decided to share a taxi to Nachi Cocom. I had read that it was $20 one way, we ended up paying the equivalent of $8 USD each in Pesos. Love saving a little money when I can.

Nachi is an all inclusive private beach and bar that takes up to 100 guests per day. More if you pay enough to get in at the gate. Thats a story for later that day. I would visit Nachi again in a heartbeat!

Beth was traveling with her hubby Chase and this was their anniversary trip. Oh my gosh they are the nicest people ever.

There was also another party from our FB group who was attending a vowel renewal. This party included some of the ladies from the Mixology. I think of the 100 allowed Nachi guests, folks from the Wonder took up about 40 spots.

Back to sunrise and arriving early morning in Cozumel. This is from our verandah. I mean really, how did we luck out with this view?





Another attempt at making the sewage taste not like sewage. This time I added regular milk and sugar.



Boats in the bay:



One of the other 8 ships in Port for the day:



Touristy shopping area of Cozumel:



We had planned to meet Chance and Beth at the buffet before heading to Nachi Cocom. We weren’t that hungry but met them and took a glance at the buffet. I ended up getting a hash brown patty and it was delicious.

Off we went to go through the Port, to the Mega, and then a taxi to Nachi.

It was now about 8:30 am I believe due to all of the time changes. Chase wore a watch so I knew we’d make it back.

Passing the Starbuck’s I was very tempted to log into the wifi and connect but I promised myself I wouldn’t. I prevailed and survived!

We walked through the shopping area and to the Mega in no time. We found Joshua a soccer ball no problem. I love my no so rusty Spanish. Having just returned from a week in Zihuatanejo a month earlier, my Spanish was still decent. I also bought us all some kakawates limones (lime peanuts).

We grabbed a cab outside the Mega and headed to Nachi. I took a few pics on the way.

Ahhhh, the ocean. Look at that blue!





On this next pic, look through the windshield and see the Federales. Joshua was unnerved by this site.



A cruise ship, not sure which brand:



A few more sites:



There is not a helmet big enough to make me ride or rent a scooter in Mexico:



Another ship (that makes 4 including us and there was set to be 8 total):



Ruins of some sort:



And finally our destination:




Up next: a day at Nachi. To be continued…..

The sunrise was a lovely view to wake up to. I was like Josh about the Federales the first time I saw them, but now it just seems normal.

That ball saga just sucks! And how sweet is your Joshua to take the news of a lost ball so well.

Great start to the day. All those cruise ships!
Lovely pictures of the sunrise and the day.

It really was stunning. I felt so crazy blessed with our cabin and that view.

I feel the same about the Federales. I've been to Mexico so many times, I don't think twice but to experience it with someone for the first time, I understand how unnerving it is.

Agreed. The ball saga was a joke. Nobody knew nothing. He's a really an even tempered kid.


Cozumel was just gorgeous in the morning light.

That ball saga really stinks. I love the sunrise. We have only ever been to Chankanaab in Cozumel and love it. I am looking forward to see something different in your report.
