Default Costa Maya out for YEARS??

Just heard a rumor from a friend at Carnival who said they haven't even begun to assess Costa Maya as the next hurricane is already on its way. And it could be as much as TWO YEARS before the pier is repaired. I really hope she's wrong-- That's a real shame for us and the local economy.

The initial report is 6-8 months before the ships return. It may be the way they returned to Cozumel after hurricaine Wilma. The piers were destroyed so they tendered instead of dockded. They need to get the ships back in asap to get their economy back up and running.

I don't blame them for not even assessing the island with another monstor storm on the way! Looks like it may just miss them - so who knows what the future will hold. I'm ready for hurricane season to be finished!!!!

Since Cozumel had tenders readily available, Carnival has been able to drag their "propellers" on getting that pier back in shape.

If Costa Maya does not have the same tender services available, then Carnival with step quickly to get the dock rebuilt!!
