Comments This is the dive that wasn't. We had booked a dive with Cristina to coordinate with our cruise ship's schedule. As of the date we left, we were the only ones booked that day. Despite our best efforts, we were 45 minutes later than we had expected due to difficulties docking in Cozumel. Unfortunately, Cristina had not told us that she would leave at a particular time, so we arranged for babysitting, were the first people off the ship, and made it to the marina (a $15 ride away) only to discover that she had left with other divers 15 minutes earlier. The marina operator called to Cristina's boat, who said that they would come back for us and would be there in 10 minutes, so we let our cab go. Several minutes later, they called the marina to report that they wouldn't return for us after all. We ended up stranded in a remote marina, loaded with dive gear, for quite some time while we tried to get a cab to return us to our ship. Moral of the story: cruisers should not try to book with Cristina!
