You're welcome, Carol; I know I would not have had such a wonderful first cruise if I hadn't read these boards and jotted down literally hundreds of ideas. I'd have been lost!

Glennsheila, from what I've read here and elsewhere, Cozumel will be fine and as expected; Costa Maya is another story. Evidently the pier will be unusable for maybe 8 months. Carnival has...
