Cozumel Welcomes Cruisers With Weeklong Fiesta
Cruise passengers returned to Cozumel today for the first time since Hurricane Wilma crashed ashore in October -- and officials and businesses in the popular Western Caribbean port have welcomed them with open arms by organizing "Festival del Mar Caribe," a weeklong festival.

Throughout the week, the events will center around Town Square, which has been transformed into a lively entertainment venue celebrating the sights, sounds and tastes of the island. A few highlights of the festivities include dance performances, roving mariachi bands and street vendors selling local crafts and paintings.

Celebrity's Galaxy and Carnival Triumph were the first to arrive today, but are just two of a dozen ships calling at Cozumel this week (ships will tender passengers to San Miguel's ferry piers for the foreseeable future, as Cozumel's three piers are in need of repair). The rest of the schedule is as follows:

Tuesday: Star Princess, Norwegian Sun and Jewel of the Seas
Wednesday: Carnival Miracle, Norwegian Majesty, Coral Princess and Zenith
Thursday: Legend of the Seas
Friday: Rhapsody of the Seas
Saturday: Enchantment of the Seas

Hurricane Wilma pounded Cozumel with 125-mile-per-hour winds; the eye hovered above Cozumel and nearby Cancun for two days before heading to Florida.
