Carnival Dream Arrives in Cozumel


Of the many available Carnival cruises to Mexico, my family and I have been on three such cruises to date.

You will find that most of Carnival Cruise Lines' western Caribbean cruises include a Mexican port of call in their itineraries.

While many visitors to Mexico frequent places like Cancun - which has many beautiful resorts - others choose to visit Mexico on a cruise ship.

Carnival's cruise sailings to Mexico include two main ports of call, Cozumel and Costa Maya and to a lesser extent, Progreso.

My family has visited Costa Maya once and Cozumel a whopping three times.

Ships in Cozumel Pier


Costa Maya and Cozumel are known for good beaches, Mayan ruins, snorkeling and much more fun activities. The latter (Cozumel), however, sees up to 2.5 million cruise passengers each year, in addition to many other tourists who visit the island by air.

Deep sea divers are attracted to Cozumel, because of its amazing marine life.

I noted earlier that my family has taken three Carnival cruises to Mexico. Each cruise was with a different Carnival "Fun Ship."

Our first 5-day cruise to Cozumel was with Carnival Sensation. The next cruise was a 7-day Carnival cruise with Carnival Glory, which included stops in Costa Maya and Cozumel. And, our final cruise to Mexico was a 5-day Carnival Paradise sailing with stops in Cozumel and Grand Cayman.

In addition to the ships listed above, Carnival has several other cruise ships that visit ports of call in Mexico each year.

My family enjoyed each visit to Cozumel and our one stop in Costa Maya. We are yet to visit Progreso.
