I decided on a short excursion during our last stop in Cozumel Mexico while on the the seven day Caribbean cruise I was on aboard the Norwegian Star. I chose to do an easy shore side snorkel adventure because I am not an experienced snorkeler. This excursion only cost $35 for an adults and $25 for children 13 and under. It only lasted two hours which was fine because I wanted to explore Cozumel a little bit and buy some last minute souvenirs.
I realize the truck that was "stranded" on the beach has nothing to do with snorkeling, but I thought it was quite picturesque and interesting. I've shown it to people since I arrived home and I think it's their favorite photo of my cruise. It is a 1932 Ford. I have no idea if it still runs are not!
One of the main reasons I did not want a long excursion in Cozumel was because I was reading a book that I had borrowed from the ship's library and still had 250 pages left to read. I included a picture of the book below as I thought it was excellent. This was the first novel I have read by Nora Roberts that I enjoyed.
Here are a couple of sailboats that I saw. It was a perfect day to be out on the water!
Here isn't on edited photo of how clear and blue the water was in Cozumel:
Here is a photo of our group snorkeling just off the coast:
I thought this pirate ship was very cute and interesting:
Here is a photo of some of the coral reef we had to walk on. I love snorkeling but I must admit I am afraid of walking in swimming around the coral reef as it's very sharp!
Like all of the other places we visited on this cruise Cozumel's was really beautiful as well!
Here is a photo of a ship that was parked at the port with some ominous looking storm clouds above it:
Here is a photo of two of Norwegian ships. Mine is the smaller one and hold around 2400 guests. The larger newer ship can't hold up to 3400 people!
As you can see Cozumel is pretty built-up and commercialized similar to Cancun:Here is the 500 page book I was reading. I did end up finishing it and would recommend it. I bought two more books by Nora Roberts as soon as I arrived home.
