My completely fake and made up LIVE blog from Harmony of the Seas - April 18, 2020!

Day Two: "I can't believe I ate the whole thing"

I used to think I needed a sea day on day two for the perfect cruise, but then I went to Perfect Day at CocoCay.

I wanted to maximize every minute of our day here, so I set the alarm early so I could be the first one off the ship.

Naturally, @CGTLH was already downstairs at the gangway, having photoshopped his face on the Captain's ID card so the crew wouldn't mind him being there.

Once Harmony was cleared, I walked off the gangway. I saw @JLMoran and wanted to know if he wanted to walk down the pier, but he was taking at least 700 wide-angle photos at the time and I did not want to disturb him.

Rather than invest in a Coco Beach Club pass, I decided to hit all the favorites.  And by all the favorites, I mean, walk from one Snack Shack location to another.

My first stop was the Great Temple of Ronald Hiller Oasis Lagoon pool!

Absolutely stunning day, with perfect weather.

Of course, no visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay is complete without a stop (or four) at the Snack Shack for the world famous Crispy Chicken Sandwich!

Luckily, the walk to Snack Shack is quite close from Oasis Lagoon (there are two other locations on the island too).

Snack Shack has an assortment of items on the menu, but like the old Knight from Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade, choose wisely, for while the true Grail sandwich will bring you life, the false Grail sandwich will take it from you.

Pro tip: while they prepare the sandwich, you can munch on mozzarella sticks that are readily available.

Having secured my precious sandwich(es), I savored every bite of these amazing combinations.

A little Old Bay would take that sandwich to the next level

We had perfect weather throughout the day. Nice breeze, and more sun than clouds.

I even managed to get my steps in, with my frequent walks to the Snack Shack.

Back onboard Harmony, I took a shower and a nap.  I was wiped out from the day, so no specialty dining tonight.  I thought I might even not be that hungry until I awoke to this message from @Lovetocruise2002’s Hubby...

That is the international symbol of Mongolion grill!

I got changed and rushed upstairs to get in on this full-plated goodness.

If you have never experienced the Mongolion Grill, it is an Asian stir fry where you get to customize the veggies, noodles and meat served.  Royal Caribbean has a secret sauce, which legend says was the captured tears of a unicorn that saved the life of a Chupacabra.

At one point, the Windjammer staff almost called "Alpha, Alpha, Alpha" after seeing us sprawled out, but I calmly explained this is our "in between monogolion grill position".

Once I managed to find the will to move again, it was down to the pub.  No surprise, @Big Dawg Ron and @AnnetteJackson were waiting.

HELLLLOOOOO?? If there were pints of Guinness involved, I was right there with @Big Dawg Ron and @AnnetteJackson, pint in hand! Who do you think took such tempting pics?

Bro, does that photo look like a wide angle photo? Can't be you!

Now you sold yourself out for it being a work of fiction. If it’s just you and four other dudes there would be no need to change. There’d be no vitriol like an MDR discussion if you stayed in the clothes you wore to CocoCay.

So where was I? Oh yes, our next stop...Cozumel!

I decided to squeeze in as much as possible into my day at Cozumel. I know @Big Dawg Ron booked Nachi, and @AnnetteJackson was camped out at the Starbucks on the island, so I decided to hit the ground running.

After the ship was cleared, I grabbed a cab to downtown San Miguel.  I wanted to grab breakfast at my favorite coffee shop on the island: La Cozumelena

This is just a block or two off the main street, and it offers a pretty wide selection of breakfast food and plenty of coffee.

Properly caffeinated, I decided to walk down the street to my favorite roof top bar in Cozumel, Casa Cuzamil. It has a great view and the breeze is fantastic.

While Casa Cuzamil has food on their menu, I opted to take a taxi and meet up with @CGTLH at Paradise Beach for lunch and the afternoon.

Since they only charge a couple bucks for entry, it makes sense to go there for just a couple hours.

When you drink with @CGTLH, especially in Mexico, it is suffice to say "a good time was had by all"
