Paradise Beach-Cozumel

by Kay~Kacey on 11/4/2008

The next port we went to on our cruise was Cozumel. Carnival had just reopened their pier that had been taken out previously by a hurricane. This one is supposed to withstand a category 5 hurricane. Hope it can. We docked to a bright, sunshiny, warm day.


Our ship was the Carnival Fantasy, but you can see her sister ship, the Ecstasy was docked here too. (Digressing for a moment…I had a strange desire, wishing we were sailing on the Ecstasy, just because of its name. That’s wrong of me, isn’t it??) We willing posed for SuperGuy in a typical cruise ship in the background shot. (digressing again…wow, those pink crocs clash with my coral tshirt, don’t they? Why didn’t someone tell me???)

Oh, look! SuperGuy was there too! He’ll love that I got a shot of him carrying the floral beach bag… I’m detecting a trend of SuperGuy carrying bags… Wonder how long I can keep working the “Gosh, honey, that bag is just too heavy for little ‘ol me to carry.” …once he finds out I’m taking photos of it each time.

Anyway, we shopped a bit, then headed for Paradise Beach. No admission to get in, no charge for chairs or umbrellas. About a five minute cab ride from the pier. For $10 you get a wristband that lets you do lots of water sports. Water trampolines, a huge “iceberg” to climb. Or kayaking.

Notice how helpful The Adorable Girlfriend was with the paddling?

The Geeky One got even…The Adorable Girlfriend couldn’t figure out why is was so much harder paddling back into shore… :rofl:


Oh, here’s a big surprise. A pointing picture!! :love: or maybe :mad2: :roll:

beer on the beach

SuperGuy and I just kind of hung out on the beach and did our own thing. Not sure we moved from our lounge chairs once we sat down. “Freddie” kept bringing us ice cold beer though, so all was good.

We got back on the ship, arrived back at New Orleans, drove 11 hours back home.

A most perfect vacation. The end.

Such great memories of the fantasy I have. My husband and I took our honeymoon on the fantasy the first year it was in commission. What an amazing ship! Back then it was sailing to the Bahamas…

I don’t know…sometimes Ecstasy can be overwhelming. Fantasy always works :lips:

Looks like fun! We took the kids to Cancun back in 1998. We had a blast!

I’ve never wanted to go on a Carnival cruise….until now! It sounds like such fun! So glad you had a fabu time!

I think the bright pink crocs and orange shirt look “festive,” and in keeping with a tropical theme.

This makes me long for a tropical vacation. I guess I’ll go to the gym instead — people sweat there too. :cool:
