I would love to do this entire cruise all over again. The only thing I might change would be to stretch it to one more day, maybe two, or three. We had a great time and look forward to our next cruise in January.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico - The port is not the prettiest, but it's clean and functional. The excursion to Uxmal and Hacienda Ochil was very informative and fun.
Galveston, Texas - We love Galveston and have visited several times. Every time we are here, we revisit some of our favorite spots and always try to do something new. There is so much to do here, that's easily accomplished.
Cozumel, Mexico - We did an excursion to La Casa en La Playa. I did not want to leave Cozumel.
Carnival Valor - If at all possible, take the Faster to the Fun option. It helps quite a bit at Embarkation, and Debarkation.
