We did CN last September for the first time and loved it. We also booked September 2012 in March 2011 because of the $300 resort credit for booking early. When we cancelled our 3 week January trip to Hong Kong we had to go somewhere for at least a week so we booked to go to Cozumel for the first time. Then I said we had to do another trip so we booked Couples for May.
Cozumel - January
Jamaica - May & September
On our second day in Cozumel we loved the diving so much we wondered what it would cost to cancel Couples in May and book Cozumel. It was a $400 penalty but we still did it.
Couples room, food & service - 9 out of 10. Diving 3 out of 10
Scuba Club Cozumel room, food & service - a surprisingly 7-8 out of 10. Diving 9 out of 10
So we made the change. Now this year is
Cozumel - January & April
Jamaica - September.
We won't give that up because we love CN and need to go at least once a year. So we'll do two dives trips and one to CN to be pampered.
Even saw Randymon's posting about the new 2013 rates + early booking bonus coming soon.
Also we've just booked airfare to Cozumel again for January 2013 due to a great special offer at SCC . We plan to do CN again in September but will need to find maybe a totally new place (Grand Cayman perhaps) for May 2013.
Life is good when you have so many choices of where to go on vacation! 3 times a year!
