I agree if it is your first cruise to take the excursions. One we loved in Cozumel was the Catameran Fury snorkel and beach. You got to see the island from the water, do a little snorkeling, enjoy the beach a little while and still have time to shop at the port. We have been to Cozumel several times and feel pretty safe there if you chose to take a taxi to the beach or into town to shop, eat, etc. As for Progreso, you will dock at a long pier where you can take a shuttle bus into town. We felt safe there as well. You can walk along the street which parallels the water and beaches. They offer massages on the beach, chair rental, etc. We didn't take an excursion at Progreso, but I have heard the ruins there are great. There was also a double decker bus you could ride around town for a couple of bucks. Whatever you decide, be careful and have fun. If you are like us, you will be hooked after your first cruise!
