  1. So, about 3 weeks ago we found out we have another little munchkin on the way! Our third! Eek. My problem is that our cruise leaves Saturday for Cozumel and Progreso, and now I'm worried that it's risky to get off the boat because of the Zika virus. According to CDC, the risk of catching it isn't as high as it once was, but it does exist. Zika is extremely dangerous to cooking babes. The risk is quantified as being the same as the continental US, including Florida; however, some experts believe cases are being underreported lending itself to a false sense of comfort. There is no data available that is without error. My OB/GYN has actually recommended to not go, but I think that's a little overkill as there is no active outbreak. I am however, contemplating not getting off the ship and I have purchased 4 mosquito prevention products (Permethrin, OFF with DEET, mosquito incense, and CUTTER wipes), just to be safe. I also realize that October is the second wettest month in the year for Mexico. I am wondering whether anyone knows if Cozumel/Progreso is experiencing any mosquito surges right now, or does it feel relatively normal? I wouldn't say I'm prone to mosquito bites, but it only takes one infected to cause a problem. If they're swarming, I'll definitely avoid hitting land. I may just avoid it either way, but wanted to see if anyone had a feel for this in the region.

  3. This makes sense. I may deboard for Cozumel and stay on for Progreso. I definitely don't want anxiety to ruin my trip!
  4. No, excursions booked. We plan to spend a beach day at a private resort in Cozumel. This gives me hope!
  5. Thanks so much! I wasn't sure I posted in the right place. I thought it seemed barren of any Cozumel threads!

  7. This is so true! I wasn’t planning on booking but the price for four people was just too good leaving from so close a port from us!
  8. Wow! So are you averaging 2-3 per year, or more? I am aiming for one a year....if we lived nearer to a port it would be more for sure.
  9. Ha ha, it’s a great problem to have that’s for sure!
  10. Oh my! I thought I was bad but you guys make me feel better!! I love cruising!
  11. So my whole family (5 of us, including my MIL) sailed on Elation to the Bahamas for my 40th in November. (Our second cruise) And now, the most amazing deal has popped up so we are headed to Cozumel in October with just my hubby and the kids (4). Oceanview, deck 5, on the Fantasy for less than $1500. I’m floored! Maybe this isn’t a great deal to you guys but we booked this price 7 years ago for just the two of us. Been to Cozumel twice already but we don’t care! The beach is the beach and the ocean is our happy place! Just wanting to express my giddiness! Now I’m off to budget, but AARP cards, and lose some weight so I can feel sexy(er) on the beach!! What are you guys planning??
  12. I did see that on You Tube so I’m sorry to miss it. Oh well. I really just hope the lines aren’t horrible when we arrive at port.
  13. Ha ha! I’m just a wino and champagne junkie. I’ll leave the hard stuff to the rest of you! 🥂🍷🍾
  14. Fingers crossed that you are right! I want a mimosa and my balcony now!
  15. Maybe they’ll prorate it. We plan to use FTTF in some other places as well so I doubt a full refund is warranted. Would be nice though!
