Thanks so much for all the info. Do you know if water in Cozumel is warm enough for snorkeling without wetsuits? Someone was posting that water at Castaway Cay was rather cold.

I suppose part of that is what you think cold is. ^_^

I tried to research this before an the water should be around 80F in January. To me this seems warm enough to snorkel and such. But, I also snorkeled in Hawaii and that was down around 75 when we were there and we managed fine.

If you are moving around in the water you should be Ok. .

We went to paradise beach club in Cozumel an the water seemed fine for us. We also found castaway cay good temp. Bit chilly at first but then not an issue.
If I had to guess I would say mid to late 70s for temp.

Been to cozumel many times and paradise beach club is the best we have found. Affordable, super clean and very nice. Puts Mr sanchos and Carlos n Charlie beach clubs to shame. Great pool and nice beach. Going on Wonder next Saturday and will make our 4th visit to paradise beach in Cozumel

Thanks for all the useful info!

They did have it. Our itinerary had castaway cay as our last day though so all aboard time was 4:30. Rehearsal for friendship rocks was at. 4:15 and the show was at 5:00. We skipped it because we wanted to maximize our CC time and when we got back on the ship needed showers etc.

I think that was all the questions.

Shows were welcome aboard, toy story, dreams and farewell party. Forget the name of the one on second night.
Movies were Lincoln avengers 2 wreck it Ralph and monsters inc.
What? I thought the first three night it was always supposed to be different restaurants! Did they have the "show" at Animator's Palate on your night there? Did they have crab any night???

They did have show but we couldn't see it as we were in back of restaurant.

No crab no lobster.

I posted navigators on another thread if you want to see them just search my name.

Cheers

Can anyone tell me how the seas were on your cruise from Miami? Just curious since its "winter". I've only sailed before in summer and fall (hurricane season). Thanks!

How could you miss it? If you were at the back you would have been able to see many screens on the walls and the lights all change color.
