My Seven Day Caribbean Cruise Aboard the Norwegian Star

My Visit and Snorkeling Excursion in Cozumel Mexico


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!

  As you can see Cozumel is pretty built-up and commercialized similar to Cancun:Untitled (1 of 1)-24Here 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.
