I also understand that the Holiay does not have a sushi bar. Sorry. Still a great ship, smaller than many, so more friendly
(in my opinion).
I am on the Holiday on 10/23. This is my fourth visit to Cozumel & third to Calica/Playa. Excursions are not necessary on Cozumel, have never done one. I have rented a car and seen most of the island. A taxi downtown or to a beach is far cheaper than an excursion. Shopping downtown is great, and can be quite fun.
I have taken the Carnival tour to Tulum and was great, but slightly overpriced. I returned to Tulum with my wife's parents, rented a car, hired a guide, and loved my own tour at about one-third the cost of the Carnival Package. But you have to have some adventure in your blood to drive off onto the Mexican road system.
Welcome to cruise-chat and have a great cruise.
