Trying to make a dream vaction come true. My cruise will be taking me to Costa Maya and what I see in the CCL magazine has a couple of events listed, but when I look at the dollar signs for them I haven't had a rich uncle die yet.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to cruise-chat.

A little housekeeping first - you need to use BB Code for the cruise clock. HTML code will not work. BB Code is one of the three code choices you are offered when you set the clock up.

When is your cruise? As you may know, Costa Maya was obliterated by Hurricane Dean last year and has been closed ever since. The official date to reopen is this coming September although rumor has it they are a well ahead of schedule and may be ready by July.

Hi TruTrojan, welcome to Cruise-Chat. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to spend the day, the beach is a great option. You can also stroll through the shops without having to spend a dime if you don't want to. What excursions were you interested in? There may be a less expensive alternative. Best wishes and once again, welcome aboard!

I wonder if Costa Maya's reopening will change the itinerary for the ships currently calling on Progreso. I am specifically wondering about the Fantasy for October.

tn,

As you know, many itineraries were moved to Progreso after Costa Maya got slammed. I don't know what the Fantasy route was prior to the storm, but I think it did include Costa Maya.

Not sure, but I don't think Progreso was even a port option before Costa Maya got slammed. If all the ships change back to Costa Maya, the people of Progreso are going to be p&*^%$! Oh well!

Thank you Mr. Beers. We're departing mid-Sept and I did not realize that area got hammered.

I guess a little improvising works too.

Well I'll try this BB Code...I'm just dangerouse enough to get through posting a note...

The port of Costa Maya announced today that it is reopening in July. The port has been closed since it was hit hard by Hurricane Dean in July 2007. Just about all of the cruise lines that used to stop there have made a commitment to start using Costa Maya again once it reopens. Two berths will be available when the port opens in July, with a third berth opening in November. The new berths will be able to accommodate even the Genesis-class ships that Royal Caribbean is building.

That is great news! And I see they did include the Genesis ships in the rebuild.
