Will this become the unofficial drink of the cruise? Glamour shot

Just wanted to report in for the morning. When I finally went to sleep light night I was feel some motion. Then again being so use to the Oasis class ships I'm sure the motion felt was nothing abnormal.

Estimated arrival to Cozumel is 12p, clocks are setback tonight. Will be departing at 10p.

Current conditions, some clouds.

Picture from 10 minutes ago.

Should demand a refund! Neither one looked like their pictures.

On a second look, don't they both look exactly the same between the two pictures? (other than the cherry). Darn lazy marketing company.

I hope they were at least mixed well and tasted like their descriptions!

Sorry for leaving everyone hanging. Been having a relaxing day and poking fun at a few random observations.

First the key question I'm sure everyone is wondering about, the weather. To sum it up, perfect. No rain, very little cloud cover, and temperatures have been warm but not roasting. The ocean does have wave activity but overall motion has been minimal.

Arrival into Cozumel is planned for 12pm ship time (time change of an hour roll back will occur at 3am Wednesday), ship per compass the ship will be cleared at 12:30 pm. Time for all guests to be back on board is 9:30pm. The original time in Cozumel would have been 7am to 6pm.

 

Heading back to the room tonight some creatures had escaped their rooms and were chillin in the elevator lobby/stairwell.

Compass Deli after 9pm: Same spread as last night.

For anyone wondering, the speciality pizza of the day was "Meat Lovers".

Must be a popular topping, one of the Diamond/Suite Event hors d'oeuvres...

On the subject of the Diamond/Suite event. Last night first thing it was very crowded, tonight (just before 6pm) very few people.

Observations about Windjammer tonight, very very empty. Tonight was formal night so I'm sure that explains it.

I've been wanting to try Beef Wellington for a while, but I don't know if I'd want my first experience with it to be one that's been sitting for a while at a carving station under a heat lamp. I'll freely admit the only times I've seen it is when I was binge-watching Master Chef, but itseems to me that's something you really are supposed to have the second it's done cooking, or very close to it, while the filet is still piping hot and juicy and the wrapping hasn't had any chance to collect condensation or go soggy.

OMG --- You watch MasterChef too.   I think Cesar is going to win it, although, I was rooting for Shanika.

Made it to Cozumel early, started docking at 9am with clearance at 9:30am (ship/local time). Will be the only ship at the pier. Would have had an Oasis class (I think) with us if we docked tomorrow.

New addition at the pier since last time I was here, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Think last time in Cozumel was in January.

So I eventually got off the ship around 11:45am (ship time) and, stubborn as I am, walked downtown to save the taxi fare.

Made a few stops along the way and eventually wound up at COZ Coffee Roasting Company

Enjoyed a Spiced Iced Coffee and the AC after all the walking around. Since the last time I was there on the side with seating they have added a window plus plastic curtains and now has AC. Side where the order is placed and the magic with the beans are done it is still open air.

After enjoying my spiced iced coffee wound up heading back to the ship, this time in a taxi. At the pier I've notice another new addition since January, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. (Technically I saw it from the ship for the first time)

Figured I'd get the new view of the Cozumel sign. One positive thing, it blocked most of the view of that other pier...

Daily food post...

Pizza of the day: BBQ Chicken

Compass Deli: Venture to say the selection is the same everyday. The case sandwiches are different between the afternoon and after dinner time.

Now for Windjammer Recon, theme "Latin Night"

Both rounds of trying to get pictures Windjammer was busy. Think so far the busiest has been the first night.

 

Birds Eye View

Pie for dessert

Been keeping this in so far, but I finally need to vent. Selection wise in Windjammer at night, not all that impressed. I will say what I've tried has been good. One disappointment I've had is the lack of some type of Indian dish at night. I understand due to the size of the venue space is at a premium and not all tastes can be satisfied.

First time in Costa Maya. Don't know if it due to the two other Carnival ship or just timing of getting off. Have to say the port complex area is a mad house.

When we were there in December, there were 2 other ships docked with us...Freedom (I think) and a Costa ship.  The port area, while nice, was also a mad house.  I think it feels that way too because it's kind of cramped and narrow there in some areas.
