Desert Storm Reunion Cruise: Cozumel
Next stop on the cruise was a place I always wanted to visit: ruins!
When we docked, I was first greeted by this sight. On the right is my cruise ship, Freedom of the Seas. On my left was Navigator of the Seas. That’s the ship I took on my first cruise, so this was pretty weird.
Then it was off to the Mayan ruins. It was very hot out (Mexico in winter is still hot!), and a long walk to get out to the ruins.
My first reaction was, “That’s it?” I guess I expected ruins to be more exotic, though they are what they are … parts of buildings that are crumbling.
It also didn’t help that we didn’t have a good tour guide. He gave us all headsets to listen in to him, but he spoke almost in a monotone and very softly. He also didn’t seem excited about he was talking about … seems like that would be a requirement for a tour guide.
And the obligatory beach shot. This was overlooked by the ruins. We could go down if we wanted to, but the stairs were very steep, so I opted for photos.
Then it was back at the end of the day for the next trip along the coast of Mexico for more ruins.
