    It's been drizzling over cast today
    Already got on the ship drop off our carry on bag
    Went up to the Lido deck and had my first dod and guys burger loaded. Was very tasty and think he will be one of my many friends
    Explored the ship, and did noticed it had been updated and looking nice
    Got to admit I do like Carnival better then RCCL
    Just more things to do.
    Cabin is way in the back...long walk but nice extended aft balcony too with loungers too

    please excuse my grammar..using my Samsung phone...brought no computers, no tablets...but my phone is equipped for that

    What does a FTTF pass go for? I always amazed at the fees these these cruise ships and airlines come up with! Who thinks up this stuff? Extra hot water, softer toilet paper, bigger towels, who knows whats next?

    speaking of softer toilet paper..........due to the complex plumbing on a cruise ship, the toilet paper is thin and rough. (picture thin construction paper)
    it is horrible.

    on cruises (carnival for example) they offer Faster To The Fun, which gets folks onboard earlier than those without diamond or platinum status.
    i am not sure of the amount. I think it may be $50 or $75.
    other fees on cruises are the tips and the port taxes.
    we have never been charged for exceptionally hot water AND the large beach towels.

    Yesterday was a sea day, cloudy but lots of relaxing
    Casino wasn't nice to any of us.
    Last night was formal night. Was amazed on how many guests wore shorts, jeans and so on. We however did dressed up. The guys wore tux with those black n white spec shoes....very classy. Me a black amd white dress.
    Got lots of compliments.. honestly thought the guys liked
    getting them too.
    Dinner was prime rib and Maine lobster tail all very good


    Today we took a private jeep tour in Cozumel..first stop the tequila family.. got educated about tequila (another new friend) and can't tell you what I learned. Had samples of everyone. And bought 5 bottles.
    Tour the island and did skip the beach. cloudy so we just continued the other side of Cozumel
    Lunch was included...fish, beef and chicken fajitas..very good too. Had a margarita to wash it down.
    Next stop the pharmacy to get some cipro, Levaquin and other meds. All with no rx
    Did walk to the top of the light house
    Do not do this on a full belly
    Tour lasted 6 hrs and driver took us right to the entrance
    All of this was 50 pp and a nice tip
    Would recommend this.
    Five ships in port so it was busy for the local.
