Exciting Group Cruise Opportunities for 2016

Before you know it, the New Year will begin.  

What family vacation plans have you already made? If you said, "None", then I have some exciting group cruise opportunities for 2016 to share with you.

These cruises are with three different cruise lines: Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.  The cruises are during different months of 2016.  One cruise with Carnival is actually a "mission" sailing, giving you a great opportunity to help needy orphans in Cozumel, Mexico.  Also, the cruise with Royal Caribbean is aboard the biggest cruise ship at sea, Allure of the Seas.

Sounds like fun to me!

Click on the link for each cruise, check it out, discuss it with your family and return to the link to reserve your cabin.

Here are the cruises:

Have You Visited Cozumel, Mexico?

My family first visited Cozumel, Mexico nine years ago on our first Caribbean cruise.  Since then, we have been back on three different cruises – all Carnival sailings.

There was a time when I thought that Cozumel was largely a cruise stop.  However, I have learned over the years that it is much more.  It is a very popular Mexican tourist spot for families, singles and couples.

Cozumel, Mexico is known for great beaches, deep sea diving and snorkeling.  It is said that over a million tourists visit this Mexican island each year.

As I said earlier, the island is also popular with cruise lines.  You can find all the top Caribbean cruise lines with itineraries that include Cozumel.  If fact, the island has three different piers to welcome cruise liners, many of which offer year-round cruises to this hot tourist spot.

To get to Cozumel on a cruise ship, you need to book a Western Caribbean cruise.  Our last visit to the island was July 2012 on a Carnival Paradise cruise, which also called at Grand Cayman.  We did a tour of the island, checking out the interior, seeing how the people live and get around, watching people play with iguanas and visiting one of the many beaches on Cozumel.

If you are interested in taking your family on a cruise ship vacation which includes Cozumel, Mexico, you can find several sailings leaving from ports in Florida, as well as from New Orleans and Galveston.

Happy sailing!
