We were in Cozumel in Nov. on the NCL Dream. They offered both of the Playa Mia tours at that time. They go to the same place. The smaller price does not include food or transportation. You have to take a taxi there and buy your own lunch, but everything else is the same. The higher price(we paid $51pp) they take you in a bus and bring you back to the ship, and lunch is included. This was a very nice facility, very clean with a good beach and nice warm water. There were a lot of vendor stalls as you walk in for shopping. We really enjoyed our day there. We were there for 5 hrs. which may be a little too long if you want time to shop in town, as we really had no time when we got back. If you taxi there yourself, I guess you could ask to be picked up at a different time, one that you decide on. Hope this helps you decide.
