Favorite thing: This fish lies under coral formations in fairly shallow water (10 m). They have dark and light grey stripes on their faces and bodies, but bright yellow flesh inside their mouths and on their fins. In addition, they have barbels, or "whiskers" all along the bottom edge of their jaw. They are an odd mix of striking beauty and surprising ugliness. The Splendid Toadfish is endemic to Cozumel.

Favorite thing: Eat a lot of pico and chips and drink a lot of beer. They taste better on an island.
Take a plane to Chichen Itza for 1/2 a day its truely incredible.
Go diving, this is the dive capitol of the world
If you cant dive, snorkle.
go into town when there arent any cruise ships, drive to the east side of the island when there are a lot of cruise ships.
visit the cozumel ruins, they arent the best but we had fun.

Favorite thing: Small Sport Deck is the place where you will find the Aerobics Room, and men and women saunas. The facilities are rather small and were crowded first day, but later became quite tolerable. Passengers can choose from a variety of exercise classes daily, ranging from aerobics to stretching. A fee is charged for some classes.

Favorite thing: The Lido deck is the place where the guests spent most of their daytime during sailing days. There is a swimming pool and hot tub in the center of the deck with the adjusting bars. The deck has live music(the Cool Calypso Band still sounds in my ears) and a 115-foot-long cascading waterslide coming down from the Verandah deck.
Fondest memory: The casual Seaview Bar & Grill serves buffet-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here you will find some good meats, seafood, fruits, pastries etc. In the middle of the area are two machines dispensing ice cream and fat-free yogurt. Seaview restaurant is also the location of the ship’s 24-hour pizzeria, serving salad and Italian specialties around the clock.

Favorite thing: Promenade Deck was our another favorite. The Sensation Boulevard promenade stretches the length of Promenade Deck. As you can see on the pictures, the area has a Roman design theme, and many of the ship’s popular bars and lounges surround the area. The Roman-styled Michelangelo's bar offered live music and dancing most nights (beware of smoking).
Fondest memory: Club Vegas Casino offered over 200 slot machines and large variety of table games, including blackjack, poker, and roulette. Don’t expect to win fortune here though. The Kaleidoscope Dance Club is another popular spot (mostly for young people) due to its late-night disco dancing.

Favorite thing: Atlantic Deck is one of the most popular decks on the ship. First of all, two dining rooms are here: Ecstasy and Fantasy. Both serve dinner in two assigned seatings, along with open-seating breakfast and lunch. Our table 115 was next to the window offering fantastic ocean view. We had late sitting for dinner (8:30 PM). Tables hold anywhere from four to 10 passengers.
Second popular place on the deck was the two-level Fantasia Show Lounge. Fantasia has seating for over 1,300 passengers. On second night it featured extravagant Las Vegas-style revues with state-of-the-art sound and lighting. They repeat main show twice – for the 1st and 2nd seatings but I would suggest to come earlier to get better seats in the center - some sideline seats have obstructed views. The Oak Room library on the deck lends books and board games free of charge (but you have to check in using your card). The library accommodates 43 travelers. Atlantic Deck also has the ship's small Card Room – most of the time numerous groups held their meeting there but the room was popular with board- and card-game enthusiasts too.
Fondest memory: Children activities are open to children ages 2-15, and there’s a playroom for children under age 3. Another interesting place on the deck was the Touch of Class piano bar where live music and sing-alongs made the place one of the ship’s most exciting nighttime locales but expect a lot of smoking here.

Favorite thing: Onboard activities and entertainment were good and plentiful. The amount of things to do is endless, from karaoke to piano bars, to disco, to casinos. Cool Calypso played at the Lido Deck; Sensation Orchestra played at the Promenade Deck; you could sing-along in the Piano Bar. There was a Singles Party at Kaleidoscope Disco around 11PM but we did not go. During the day they had different games, such as Battle of the Sexes and the Newlywed and Not So Newlywed Game. They were a lot of fun to watch. Of course there was always bingo. The Casino is like every other casino. If you play, you only have to choose how much you lose and how fast! During the last day at sea they had an ice carving demonstration on the stage by the main pool.
Fondest memory: The evening entertainment was average, this could be improved. We attend both big "Vegas-Style" shows and found them rather mediocre.
We highly recommend the Gala Midnight Buffet on the night of the Captain's party. It is a sight to see if you have never seen one before. They allow you take pictures right before they open up the buffet.

Favorite thing: Many of the hotels in Cozumel are in the area of the island where snorkelling and SCUBA diving abounds as it draws the most tourists. Unfortunatly, or fortunalty, depending on why you are there, this means that the shore is full of coral. This makes for beautiful fish, but little sand. If you want to sleep it off at the beach, or if you have kids that want to play in the ocean or rent jet skis, you will need to leave your hotel and go to one of the many beaches north of the main hotel area. Mr.Sanchos, a beach just north of the tourist part of town is one of the only beaches that offer free admission and have anything and everything that you need for a perfect day. The white sand is beautiful, the color of the water is incomparable. You can sit in swings as you sip margaritas at the bar, or sleep in the sand until you turn red! The food is great and cheap. Don't bother paying to get in to any of the other beaches because they are not as nice and will charge you the equivalent of 10 dollars to get in.
Fondest memory: The last night day that I was there, I turned to my best friend, tried to articulate a sentence no more complicated than "do you want to get lunch" and I was so relaxed and so content that I could not speak. This is when I knew that my vacation had been perfect! We laughed for several minutes and then had lunch in our beach chairs as the sun lowered in the sky...

Fondest memory: Once I had enough time to explore the landscape with some friends. We rented a jeep and someone had taken this picture of me.
Renting a car was really cheap and the island is not so very big, so you may explore quite a lot of it during an afternoon.

Favorite thing: Despite recent development activity, Isla Cozumel retains much of its sleepy little island character. It's escaped the overdevelopment of some of the other areas in Mexico, notably Cancun, and remains an excellent destination for water activities.
