The Christmas Cruise X itinerary was interesting because it had a sea day in the middle of the cruise, which didn’t really seem necessary, but because of the timing, then meant we had to leave Costa Maya relatively early (1:30pm) in order to make it back to New Orleans in time.
When you have a short port call (less than seven hours), people don’t do excursions as much as they just hop on and off to look at the sights (well, the stores.) Since we had an aft balcony, we had a good view of the people wandering off and on all day. We were also next to a rather large Royal Caribbean ship, so their passengers were doing the same.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYlN3A8SePs&w=560&h=315]
