Cruise-ships in Cozumel Mexico – Talking about scale…

It is simply amazing to see these monster cruise-ships in Cozumel Mexico. My husband and I spent a few weeks in this beautiful location on the Caribbean Sea. And because we were close to the water, we could watch the harbor activity, which is really captivating. I’ve never seen so many cruise-ships in one place, and from so close. * Click on the pictures for a larger view!

The port is very busy – I even read that Cozumel is the busiest cruise-ship port in the world. Here you can see these giants coming and leaving every day.


Some come early in the morning, others late at night.

Lucky we had a hotel room in a high-rise hotel nearby, so I could photograph them coming in at dusk.

What impressed me most, was of course their size. I had fun and couldn’t stop taking photos of these giants from all angles. What I mostly liked was to show the scale compared to other elements around. Look at those people walking on the dock and looking like ants 🙂

And the people onboard are almost invisible. You either have to click for a closer look or try to visualize them 🙂

I still cannot figure out how do they manage to park these huge boats so close to each other…

I hope you were as amazed as I was on seeing the Cruise-ships in Cozumel Mexico through my camera 🙂

  1. *** I made this post for pure travel photography purposes, mainly to respond to the WP challenge with the theme “scale”.

    I’ve been however incited by Fandango to think about “cruises” subject in the light of what this means to us these days of the Corona virus panic (read “pandemic”)…

    But, there is a question here: is this real or a hoax???

    I’m repeating here somebody’s rhetoric question which you may want to think about:

    “Do we even know if this virus is REAL and not A HOAX ? Has anyone seen someone s/he knows get sick from it ? Do you have relatives, friends, coworkers who contracted it ? Or do you just hear about it on TV and radio, and read about it on newspapers every day WITHOUT first hand experience ? They could be Bombarding us with FAKE NEWS, no ? Why do you believe them ? I think this is not even a real virus. It is just a well-coordinated global effort to GASLIGHT us. THEIR truth or OUR truth ?”

    Well, listen to this speech of David Icke, and think for yourself:

    • … and for any other activities where people gather together. Who knows how this artificially induced situation will end up… we’ll see.

    • Actually, thinking more about this, having a virus problem on a cruise-ship doesn’t make any sense, because other than beaches and some other places with sun, breeze and especially the good spirit :), cruises are one of the healthiest environments. It is known that all germs, microbes, viruses and bad things like humid, cool dark places vs. dry bright sunny and well aerated places with lots of “negative ions”:…/
