Default Why such an early departure from Calica?

Here's a question that's been nagging me and that I thought you smart folks could explain. On Day 3 of its Monday departure cruise to the Western Caribbean, the Sensation arrives in port at Calica at 9 a.m., and then departs at 6 p.m., even though the port for Day 4 -- Cozumel -- is a mere 12 miles offshore.

Anyone know why the ship departs Calica so early? I would have expected a 10 p.m. or midnight departure. No burning need to know. Just curious...

Simply because the shops and stuff close down there at that time and outside of that and tour there is nothing to do or see. All tours will be back by then so why not put to sea and provide the entertainment and make money on drinks and gambling and ships stores.

24 cruises and counting!

It could also be that this port is primarily used by freighters to ship cement to China. Carnival is a very small part of the operation there. It happens to be home to one of the largest cement producers in the world. Yes, that's what all those piles of rock are for.
