Carnival GLORY Cruise - Day 3 - Cozumel

We were lucky with the weather our entire week. Monday morning brought us a beautiful sunrise as we sailed into Cozumel. We were up early and enjoyed breakfast in our Carnival robes on our balcony. Then it was time to get dressed, meet our friends for some MORE breakfast at the buffet and then head to the top decks to watch as we sailed smoothly alongside the Carnival Fantasy.

We were off the ship by 10:30 and headed into the shopping district.

HEY - "Welcome to Cozumel".

Us women had ONE thing on our minds - JEWELRY - and we were all very successful with our bartering. Our husbands just sat outside the stores and shook their heads.

After our shopping excursion, we were hungry and thirsty and we set our sights on Senor Frogs.

mmmmmmmmm - guacamole!!!!

We spent an hour enjoying the music and contests with our friends at Senor Frogs and then it was off to our Deluxe Sail and Snorkel Excurion - courtesy of Fury Catamarans. Here are Gena and I, patiently waiting for our excursion...

So, we all hopped aboard the catamaran - beer and margaritas were flowing freely - tropical music pumping from the speakers. After about a half hour, we anchored offshore and spent about 45 minutes snorkeling.

Once the snorkeling portion of the excursion was complete, we ended up on a private beach for an hour of relaxation and all the beer and margaritas we could consume. Looks like our husbands found the perfect spot....

After an hour of total relaxation, we boarded our catamaran for the ride back to the pier and we arrived back at the Glory with only about 10 minutes to spare. We went straight to the Lido Deck and found a spot by the railing to watch as the Glory pushed away.

Before heading to our room, I made my way to the Glory's Aft for this shot. I love seeing the ship's wake.

Monday evening consisted of dinner in the Platinum Dining Room and then a show in the Amber Palace - "Living in America". We all enjoyed this show very much!! We drug back to our room around midnight to be greeted by our latest "friend" and we dropped into bed and drifted off to sleep beneath that ever so comfortable Carnival bedding.

Next Installment: Belize, Cave Tubing with Major Tom
