It's nice to meet you too Ashley. Well, even though we are taking the kids we are going to try to take time for ourselves by putting them in camp carnival. It's hard to take time when you have kids. Hope you have a great time. Is this your first cruise?

You're right, it is hard to take time when you have kids. I have never left my kids before and i am starting to feel guilty about it. I was reading about camp carnival, that sounds great for kids. I think that its nice that parents can take there children there so they can take some time for themselves. Yes, this is our first cruise and I cant wait! So, I will take all the advice I can get about everything, lol. Whats your name RANS2308?

Hi Ashley, My name is Keri. Hey that is great you get to leave the kids and have adult time but I know what you mean about feeling guilty. We have done a few vacations without the kids and it's hard not to think about them and miss them . But my advice is to try not to feel guilty and have a great time because 1. you don't know when you will get that opportunity again and 2. If you let it the guilt will get to you and you won't enjoy your trip as much as you should. So as long as you are leaving them in good hands and comfortable with that go have a great time and enjoy yourself. It has been a while since we have been on a vacation without our kids. How old are your kids?

Default i have lots of ideas for you

I'd say swimming with the dolphins is the most amazing experience you can have..

There are alot of different shore excursions in cozumel on this website, just to give you an idea.

http://www.cozumel-tours.com/shore-excursions.htm

Also there are loads of shop.
And there is a wonderful bar, just 5 minute alk from where the ship docks, I think its called the no name bar, i cant quite remember.
But you walk through a corridor and end up out side, on a beautyfuail bar in the private beach, it also has a pool and sun loungers, and a big cocktail bar in the middle...You could spend all day there. its beautyful.You can even swim into the private clear blue sea.

If i remember the name i'll let you know.

Also there is a lovely restaronte called 'Margaritaville' They do the best food.

Thanks Huni for the advice. I am trying to figure out what excursions we should do, or if we want to just hang out and shop and eat and lounge on a beach somewhere. Thanks!

How old are your kids?

Our son is 6 and our daughter is 3. I think we will have a great time. We are leaving the kids with their grandma so I know they will be fine. It will probably be like a mini vacation for them too, lol. Thanks for the kind words. That was really nice of you. Its nice to know there is someone out there who can relate.

I've been to Cozumel 2 times. My favorite time was when I took my then 8 year old niece Swimming with the Dolphins. I'll never forget it. I don't know who enjoyed it more me or her.

I'm a big kid :-)
