Cozumel Cruise // Winding Up

So after the wild and crazy times in Cozumel, the rest of the cruise was essentially spent waiting to get back to Galveston. The rest of these photos are just lounging around and eating, which is what you do on a cruise.

The last afternoon and night aboard the ship, Justin and I belly up to the bar and have a few. Our lovely wives join us and Sweet Sweet and I enjoy some good times:

The entire trip, we were served by Prito and his helper (I can’t recall his name right now). Prito was incredibly helpful and had no problems bringing out additional deserts and appetizers. He was a tremendous waiter.

The next morning, we waited for a few hours to get off the ship. We were a little over 2 hours late and this caused all of us to get a tad bit antsy, not to mention, the method of getting off of the ship was quite simply awful. Needless to say, we were ready to be on dry land.

Cozumel Cruise // On the Beach in Cozumel

So, after getting on the ship, having a nice dinner, we finally arrive in Cozumel without any sort of plan. In fact, they always encourage you to make sure that you’ve booked your excursion and we decided not to do that.

Seat.  Of.  Our.  Pants.

This is Sweet Sweet and I getting off of the ship:

The Ecstasy, in all of her glory:

Walking on the dock, I can’t believe Justin would carry this bag:

So, we find a taxi and long story short, we ask the driver to take us to the best public beach in Cozumel. He does, and it’s amazing. He essentially drops us off and we find ourselves in an outdoor bar/restaurant that was made for us. We sit down and have a few beers before getting acquainted with the water.

Although I was trying to take a picture of Sweet Sweet (yes, I fail at camera), you can tell that that the sand is beautiful and the water is crystal clear:

The ocean from our table:

Yeah, this doesn’t look like a public beach, but it is:

Justin and Ashely not looking at my camera:

So I’m out in the water and to make another long story short, it turns out that Lori Cochran (now Anding) is at the same beach on a different cruise. So we hook up with their group while we’re there. They paid for the excursion and they were able to eat whatever they wanted and drink as much as they wanted. Justin and I shared some civiche as well as this beautiful fish:

Here’s everyone and the bar/restaurant:

More beautiful beach and water:

Me (someone needs to work out a little harder):

Our afternoon ends and we head back to the ship:

Do not remember:

One of the best days ever, other than having to get back onto the ship.

Cozumel Cruise // Looking Nice

So the second night of the cruise was the night we were supposed to get all dressed up and look decent. Before dinner, we tried to go out on the deck and take photos. The sun was somewhat blinding:

We then decided to take care of this later and moved inside to the Captains Welcome where we threw out gang signs, some cooler than others:

After the Captains Welcome (which turned out to be free drinks) we went back on the deck. This is prior to turning on the flash:

Then with the flash on:

Pretty amazing, right?

Prior to dinner, we had drinks:
