The possible reasons that Carnival is gradually returning to Cozamel are numerous and worrisome. Have they cancelled some ships plans to dock while permitting others because the island is not ready to receive that many people? Is this an economic accommodation to the merchants on the island at the expense of the enjoyment of the passengers? Does it have to do with not being able to use the dock and therefore not being able to "tender" huge numbers of people to the island? The least likely possibility is the only positive scenario for me,ie. the island is perfectly fine and totally restored and fewer cruisers going there the day I go means the luxury of being less crowded on the island. How badly can a port be damaged and the cruise line will still wink, turn their head and say "Let them eat cake"? Does this scenario sound like a credit for my next cruise in the making?
