Cozumel
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
This was my fourth time, being here. We were docked with the Carnival Triumph, Liberty of the Seas, and Mariner of the Seas. We walked around the port shops, collecting the freebies from Mom's coupons in her Fun Finds book, which costs $25. Mostly free items, such as pendants, earrings, refrigerator magnets, and a drawstring bag. We got the new Disney t-shirts at the Del Sol. We walked downtown, which is about 2 miles. We went to the new Punta Lagosta Mall, where the Carnival Legend and Jewel of the Seas were docked. All of the vendors kept yelling out to Mom, they had "free parking" for her wheelchair in their shops. We took a taxi back to port, which costs $7.

We docked in Mahogany Bay on the island of Roatan, which is part of Honduras. This was my second time being here. Last time we were there, we went on the Gumbalimba Park and Jolly Roger Catamaran tour. We were here from 7 AM to 3 PM. We went on the "Best of the Island Tour," which had a late start because the tour guide was late, due to the fact his brother sprained his wrist. We drove east on the island to The View, which included arts and craft vendors. We drove to Punta Gorda, where some kids were holding a big snake on a hook, they planned to cook and eat. There was a museum there, where the locals danced for us. We drove to the West Bay and went through the shops and stood on the beach. Throughout the tour, we saw many free roaming dogs sleeping by the street. The tour guide said, the locals are supposed to let them roam free after they grow to full size, which is very sad. After the tour, we walked through the port shops. Dad bought a wooden bench, carved with homes and trees, and mom bought a Mahogany wooden carved bowl.

After breakfast, we went the shopping talk for Grand Cayman and got our tender stickers. If you attend the shopping talk, you are placed on an earlier tender and you get a free charm for your Diamonds International charm bracelet. We tendered into Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands. We were out shopping from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Mom used her coupons from the Fun Finds book and got some bamboo socks (2 pairs for $20), free bracelet charms, free refrigerator magnets, and a tanzanite necklace. Dad went on the "Coral Gables and Stingray Sandbar Tour" at 1:00 PM, where he got to snorkel and swim with the stingrays.
