    Hi! I want to book an excursion on my cruise for the “Cozumel Beach Break”, but my kids have an appointment for the pirate makeover at 3:15pm and 3:30pm. How would I know if I’ll be back in time for the pirate makeover? Do excursions stay out that late?

    Hi Renee, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question!

    After Nassau, Cozumel is probably my most-visited port from all of my Disney Cruise Line sailings. I really love the wide variety of Port Adventures that you can find there, from cultural and historical outings to activities that allow you to just have some fun in the sun with a frosty drink nearby. 

    Based on my experience, most beach excursions for Cozumel, including the Cozumel Beach Break, start either before or around 9 am. Because this experience typically lasts 4.5 to 5 hours, you should be back in plenty of time for your kiddos’ pirate makeover that night. If it starts to run a little long, I believe that there are taxis available at Playa Mia to bring you back to the ship earlier. 

    If you’re really worried about cutting it short and your kids would be interested in trying snorkeling, I would highly recommend the Cozumel Catamaran Sail Snorkel and Beach Party, too. I now do this excursion almost every time I go to Cozumel because it’s the perfect mix of activity for my family, with some snorkeling, relaxing at a fun beach and then a party when we head back to the ship. Plus, we’re typically back at the ship by noon or 12:30 PM, which allows us to have a great afternoon enjoying our ship’s activities. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan the perfect Disney Day at sea for you and your family! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
