We go to Cozumel as many as 5 times a year (usually to Paradise Beach) ...

only one time was the water really murky. A "Norte" had just blown through and when that happens .... it stirs up all the sediment.

Folks don't realize how strong the winds can get there. And since the West side of the island faces the mainland (not open seas) .... you are swimming in more of a "channel" than open water.

When we were there last year, the Legend was literally blown into an RCCL ship as it was leaving. That huge iceberg at Paradise Beach was yanked from its moorings and blown up on the beach. It yanked one of the large trampolines and blew it into the parking lot.

Now the EAST side has huge beautiful waves and soft beautiful sand, but the current and rip tides make it to dangerous to swim in. But that is because it faces open waters.....

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
