Thanks everyone for your helpful responses!!! We are outta here in three days for Galveston and set sail on Sunday....
We couldn't have made better plans than what we did with the information we found from all the experienced cruisers who answered all questions I posed on this bulletin board! Thanks everyone for all your input and advice!
I will give everyone and update on how things go when we get back. (Pictures included)
I agree, Cozumel looks like a war zone, I also felt like they should have pulled it from the interary. Went to Passion Island, very disapointing, beach was really wasted from that hurricane last year. Was there in Jan.'06
