Default Didn't Carnival used to frequent Costa Maya more?

I know my memory is not what is used to be but I could have sworn that the 5 day cruises from Galveston and NO used to be Cozumel and either Costa Maya or Coz. and Playa del Carmen.

Now they are all Coz. and Progresso. Just wondering what happened.
We always loved Costa Maya and prefer it over Progresso.

Hurricane Dean happened and shut Costa Maya down for a while. You are correct - Carnival did use to go there from New Orleans.

Hopefully they will return and/or at least alternate Progreso and Costa Maya.

It does take more fuel to get to Costa Maya than Progreso, but as long as they are going to Cozumel anyway?

I have been back to Costa Maya since Hurricane Dean, but it was on NCL from New Orleans.

I thought so! I've been there since Dean too and they did a good job of reairing the island, although I do miss the beach edge restraurants. Wish CCL would return there. Although Progresso is okay, I much prefer the beaches of Costa Maya
