Looked up Calica on Google Earth since ive never been there. It looks nice. There are 2 piers that jut out from beach. 1 to the north is longer. farther down a few miles or so there is a small inlet out in middle of nowhere that looks like a commercial container ship docking area, etc. Does Fantasy dock in any of these places or does it anchor out while in Calica? Its also directly behind Cozomel.
The cab to Playa Del Carman is $10. It's a great little town. And its a very short ride to Xcaret which is a eco park. It's wonderful and worth the price. You can enjoy both in the same day no problem.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

The good news is that IF you are lucky enough to be tendered in
(if another Carnival ship has the pier space.....the last time we were there ...there was only room for one ship to dock)....
your tender drops you off downtown right at a Senor Frogs and all the shopping...no taxi required.
The only 2 times we were there....the Holiday had the slip space and we were tendered it.
COMPLETES THE FLEET
If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!
