Don't pay too much mind to the Cozumel forecast a week out. In the tropics, there is almost always a chance of a storm, but they are often over as quickly as they began. You'll probably notice just about every day in Cozumel, about a week or so out, shows a 30-40% chance of a scattered or isolated thunderstorm. That basically just means it is hard to predict at this point. if it does rain while we are on the island, you will probably need to take shelter for a short while, and the sun will be back out before you know it.cholernik wrote: ↑Fri Jan 03, 2020 7:37 amIf living in the midwest has taught me anything it's that you can't predict the weather more than about an hour away, and yet, I still look at 10 day forecasts as if they're factual. It looks like thunderstorms are predicted for the day in Cozumel and possibly the return trip. So, I ask the experienced folk, what happens then? I'm guessing the day in Mexico is gonna be meh, hopefully the storm misses or is short. I'm just looking to chill on the beach or some nearby alcohol establishment, so I don't care to go voyage or do any of those shore excursions. And, if it's storming on the return trip, do the shows still happen on the pool deck?
Sitting here in Kenosha right now, I would tend to agree with you.
This was on a smaller boat, but the first 70K went to Cozumel and I recall it rocking very hard on the third night, as we started the return trip. I can't recall if that was the night Epica played in the theater but the boat was swaying so much that Arien's drumset started to slide away from him at one point.
looks like on the way back we'll be traveling with the storm, if there is one. I've never been on a boat this big so I have no idea what kind of impact that'll have. Might just have to get drunk to balance everything out
And THAT was an unusual storm. not too likely to be repeated.Downvod wrote: ↑Fri Jan 03, 2020 7:57 amOn the boat, there is also always a chance of rain. However, it isn't like Looney Toons where the rain clouds will follow the cruise ship the whole night. We may pass through a storm and have rain for a short while. This can cause delays on the pool deck, but i only remember one evening (in four previous cruises) where rough storms shut down the pooldeck for the whole night. That was on the last night in 2016.
Surely you mean 70000 mphof up to 70 mph
Yes I was serious...and don't call me "surely."
"Stick a sock on it!"
Yea, glad I saw his first set. It's not my exact kind of music--something is just off for me--so it wasn't exactly a two setter. I feel bad for those folk though
Glad I saw the Theater set, then. Did not make it to the pool deck. I like Emperor, but not that much
The pool deck was an awesome setting though. The steam from the hot tubs blowing across the stage, the full moon, the occasional rain. being right up front made it cooler, but, I do like Emperor that much.
