NonDisney Cozumel Excursion Recommendations
From JJ Max n Mickey
Quote:
We have stopped in Cozumel many, many times and when we do, we just like to relax at a beach club and do a whole lot of nothing. This link has them all listed:

http://www.cozumelmycozumel.com/Page...BeachClubs.htm

We always go to Paradise.
From ksloane

On another note, just booked our plans for Cozumel...booked the Nachi Cocom Beach Club (http://www.cozumelnachicocom.com/).

They limit to 100 people so it isn't crowded. It has beach, pool, and hot tub (and other activities you can pay more for such as snorkeling, jet skis, massages). Complimentary food and drinks. $55 for myself and $35 for daughter. Friend recommended. Great reviews on Tripadviser.

Required $18 deposit. Nonrefundable except for if ship doesn't port there for some reason. $16 each way to beach and back to port.

Thinking about booking?!?!

So we are thinking about booking this NYE cruise, this would be our 4th cruise-one on each ship. We did the Magic out of Galveston in Sept 2012. Had a blast..I was thinking about suprising my kids w this vacation but was not sure. Has anyone done a NYE cruise on Disney before? What all do they do? Since this is a 4 night cruise is there a pirate night? I am on the fence w booking..help!!

Woohoo! Welcome. That's so great that you're bringing your grandma. As far as I know, it will be just myself and my daughter (who will be 13) in our party.

I've never done a NYE cruise before but that's what I'm hoping will be super awesome and why we booked this specific one.

Thanks! So ksloane, you are actually going on back to back cruises? We were trying to decide between the 27th or 31st sailing and I guess one way to solve that is to just go on both! Wish that was in our budget! So do you get to stay in the same cabin the whole time or are you switching cabins?

The cruise is many months away for us so I'm not doing much other than trying to talk others into going with us. And slowly reading through threads to help me plan and jotting down useful things to pack, etc.

So for those of you who have stopped in Cozumel before, have you done any of the excursions and do you get them through Disney or get something on your own? I have only been to Cancun once - long ago, before marriage and kids. Had a lot of beach time then, as well as Mayan ruins and snorkeling. My boys (will be 15 and 12) are decent swimmers but my daughter (will be 7) will need lots of swim lessons in the next year to get to that point. Hubby is saying he might just stay on the ship in Cozumel!

Yes. We are doing back to back. I can't wait. We are just myself and my daughter and we are happy with inside staterooms making things a little easier on our budget. We'll stay in the same room for both cruises. That was what I loved when we did back 2 backs out of NYC - that transition day is so nice to not be leaving so you're not packing or unpacking and can enjoy the last day/first day.

I always book my excursions with Disney. I know that you can do them cheaper if you don't, but with Disney if we didn't make it to the port or the excursion was rained out, you don't pay. If you book on your own, then you have to worry about canceling, etc. I don't want that headache.

It's getting closer!

Anyone book any 2014 cruises? I booked us for NYE 2014 as well on the Dream.

PS I updated my first post to start listing who is going on this cruise so we'll have a complete list.

If anyone is interested in doing an FE we can record that information as well there.

Hmmm...might be interested in participating in a Fish Extender exchange. Can I do it for my kids only who will be 15, 12 and 7 when we cruise?

Since I last posted, convinced my 2 adult sisters to cruise with us. They will be in a different cabin. Deck 6 I think? We are on Deck 2.
