March 10th in Cozumel - Beach Day

We will be in Cozumel with 3 other ships on March 10th. We want to just do a beach day and have had trouble deciding between Paradise Beach, Mr. Sanchos and Playa Mia. I decided on Paradise Beach due to pictures and the kids liking the inflatables there the most. I am concerned about crowds somewhat. I have read of slow service there, we won't be heavy drinkers so just an occassional drink to wet our mouths and some lunch. All the ships will port at 8 or 9 and we don't until 10:45. 2 of the 3 actually port until 6 and we are 5:30. I would hate to get somewhere and not be able to find a chair or anything. I don't really think Nachi Cocom looks like the place for us, but was shocked it isn't sold out yet.

Any suggestions especially from those who have gone over spring break before?

Thanks!!

We have been to PB twice. We had a fantastic time! Great pool & great service. Yes it gets crowded early afternoon but there were always open chairs!

That is great to hear. I guess I hear 4 ships is a light load for Cozumel too.

That time is not spring break across the entire country... We were there in December so can't speak for the crowds in March. I believe there were 3 ships in and we were not crowded at all. Service was fine and we loved the pool! Enjoy!

We are going to PB on our spring break cruise March 16-21st. It sounds like spring breaks are all over the place as far as dates. We did the same cruise last year for spring break and although my immediate family didn't go to PB, many of the people we traveled with did, and they loved it. That's why we're going there this year! They didn't say anything about it being crowded, so I think it will be fine. Have fun! I know we are counting down!
