Default Carlos & Charlie's/Cozumel

Hi,
I am looking for some input on the difference between the two locations of Carlos & Charlies. Until last years visit (second time there), I was unaware that there are two of them. Us girls visited the downtown location and had ALOT of fun, loved the vibe, but thought this year we would try the beach location since we enjoy soaking up the sun. I hear it is within walking distance of the port, is this true? Additionally, we are traveling on Royal's Radiance of the Seas in February and am wondering if there are any "tricks of the trade" for getting room upgrades? We all currently have inside rooms. Thanks!!

We have only been to the downtown one, this new one, the, Carlos'n Charlies Beach Club sounds nice....a beach and water sport options, plus the restaurant itself..Found some info..Cozumel Mexico Travel - Carlos 'n Charlies Beach Club


The Carlos 'n Charlies Beach Club Entrance is free as long as you buy something. Snorkel/dive shop on site as well as a drugstore and stores selling silver and Cuban cigars.

They can also arrange snorkel boat trips, parasailing and Waverunners.

Distance from downtown approx. 9 miles (14.5 km).

Well, our experience in Cozumel is that patrons of Carlos and Charlie's need to ask, "Is it within RUNNING distance of the port?" A favorite sport in Cozumel is being up on deck at sailing time, and laughing at the C&C patrons stumble running to try to make the sailing after staying too long and too many margaritas!

Talking The Upgrade Fairy

The reservations department of any cruise line is a large room, full of eager young representatives with powerful computers, messing around with cabin assignments. Their principal function is to make Travel Agents tear their hair out and to say NO to upgrade requests. However, over in the corner is a rickety old desk with an obsolete computer system and a rotary dial phone. It belongs to an elderly clerk who is usually out on sick leave. But when she does come into the office, occasionally she lays her knitting down on the keyboard and it strikes a random key which gives an upgrade, sometimes a wonderful upgrade, to somebody. She is known as the UPGRADE FAIRY, and no living human being has any idea how she chooses the reservations that she touches with her magic. The best thing to do is to book a guarantee for a category that you will be fully satisfied with. If you wind up in that category be happy and enjoy your cruise. And if ... just IF ... the Upgrade Fairy touches you, then congratulate yourself that you are one of the lucky ones!

Have a GREAT cruise!

It's not walking, running, or wheel chair distance from where you will be docked. But there will be something quite similar right there at the pier if you want to do it!
