We are tied to the pier long before I open the curtains. The skies are clear and sunny, and the seas calm.
Royal's Empress of The Seas, the smallest ship in the fleet, is also berthed in Costa Maya. A village of 2000 now over whelmed with 6 or 7 thousand visitors.
A brief visit ashore to say we have been there. No purchases, not even a drink. On the way back to the ship a Carnival ship arrives to add several thousand more tourists.
The dining rooms are even more empty tonight. There are many tables available on all three decks. The few speciality restaurants I pass also do not appear to be very busy.
Another perfect day comes to an end as we head to Roatan , Honduras. Again cruising on calm seas under clear skies.
