Weekly Cruise Ship Arrival and Departure Information

COZUMELINSIDER for over thirteen (13) years has been your online source for the weekly Cozumel cruise ship schedule! We were the original source for the cruise ship schedule as "back in the day" when we started Cozumelinsider, there were no cruise line schedules being published for the daily cruise ship arrivals online or for that matter, "anywhere". We have always featured the ship name, pier/dock name, arrival date and the arrival/departure times which makes our cruise ship schedule one (1) of the most complete of any schedules you will find available online today! So please pass along the word about our cruise ship page and we would be grateful if post our link on your favorite travel blog(s) and chat board(s)! Thank You!!!

COZUMEL has grown over the years to be one (1) of the top and busiest cruise line port of call destinations here in the Caribbean. Annually over 3.3 millions cruise ship guests arrive in Cozumel and we have a total of five (5) piers; three (3) cruise ship piers; one (1) freight pier; and one (1) additional smaller pier which serves the people ferries from Playa del Carmen! Daily Cozumel hosts thousands of cruise ship tourists that arrive looking for a fun-filled day on our tropical island paradise. During the high season months that run from November to April, Cozumel often plays host to 20-30 cruise ships WEEKLY ~ this equates to between 70,000 - 80,000 weekly island guests. So you can see that with these numbers, coupled with the small window of time in which the passengers have to enjoy Cozumel their shore time, it is imperative that crusie ship passengers attempt to "PLAN AHEAD" and "MAP OUT" their day's excursions in advance. This planning will ensure they are able to see/do as many of our wonderful sights and activities possible during these precious hours they have while docked in Cozumel.

THEREFORE, to ensure the most efficient use of your time and dollars in Cozumel we recommend you do everything you can to orient yourself to where you will be docking, learn about various transportation options available at your port of call location and pick out what activities or excursions you might be interested in experiencing! Please keep in mind, you again have very limited time so we highly recommend you do not pick 5-6 activities as it is just not reasonably possible to do all of those (and it will just stress you out running from location to location - not what we want for your island experience). We recommend you limit your activities to one (1) or two (2) selections and then plan your travel or activity route that will avoid "doubling back" when on your island journey. Many cruise ship passenger itinerary documents that are issued by the cruise lines will indicate which pier will be used in each port of call for disembarkation. With this information as a starting point, you may now begin mapping out your day in Cozumel, ensuring you get the most out of your vacation time (and dollars) while on the island!

Island Pier Information
Downtown Area Piers

San Miguel Pier

Pier Downtown San MiguelCozumel's oldest pier and is now home to the people ferries that transport passengers back and forth between Playa del Carmen and the island. Often times, if cruise ships are tendering passengers due to lack of space at a cruise ship pier, the San Miguel Pier is the tender point.

  • Located in the midst of central downtown plaza area
  • Taxis are always available here for transport anywhere on the island
  • Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and bars
  • Passenger ferry transports to the mainland for those wanting to visit for shopping, etc.
  • Ferry vessel docks in PLAYA DEL CARMEN for disembarkation


    Punta Langosta Pier

    Our third cruise ship pier has berths to support a total of three (3) cruises ships (2 large or 3 medium sized ships) simultaneously as well as play host to visiting marine vessels such as US Coast Guard cutters and large private yachts.

  • Located at the southern end of the downtown area
  • Taxis are plentiful here for transport anywhere on the island
  • Easy walking distance to central downtown shopping, restaurants and bars
  • Skybridge access to Punta Langosta Mall just across the street






    Southern Area Piers

    TMM International Cruise Ship Pier TMM/SSA International Pier

    This was the first cruise ship pier constructed in Cozumel and was has recently been expanded to accommodate up to four (4) ships simultaneously.

  • 5 to 10 minute taxi ride north to downtown area shopping, restaurants, bars
  • 5 to 15 minute taxi ride south to beaches, beach clubs inside the marine park
  • Taxis always available for transport anywhere on the island
  • Multitude of shops and restaurants inside the pier area itself

    Puerta Maya Pier

    This second cruise ship pier that was constructed in Cozumel was completely destroyed by Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Following a $50 million reconstruction, the pier reopened in the fall of 2008 with capacity to support two (2) cruise ships and plans for future growth. The rebuilt pier was designed to withstand a Category 5 Hurricane. Just recently in October 2015, the pier opened a 3rd berth after an additional $20 million expansion.

  • 5 to 10 minute taxi ride north to downtown area shopping, restaurants, bars
  • 5 to 15 minute taxi ride south to beaches, beach clubs inside the marine park
  • Taxis readily available for transport anywhere on the island
  • Multitude of shops and restaurants inside the pier area itself



    TransCaribe Frieght Ferry Dock Cozumel Car & Freight Ferry Pier

    For decades this freight ferry pier was located between the TMM/SSA International Pier and Puerta Maya Pier although most people never noticed or mentioned it since its length and size didn't compare to the nearby cruise ship piers.

    But in 2012 a brand new freight ferry pier and staging area was completed next to the lighthouse that sits between downtown and the two (2) southern cruise ship piers. The relocation of this pier for freight and vehicle transport alleviated much of the traffic congestion at the southern cruise ship piers.


  • 5 to 10 minute taxi ride north to downtown area shopping, restaurants, bars
  • 5 to 15 minute taxi ride south to beaches, beach clubs inside the marine park
  • Transports large commercial cargo trucks bringing merchandise and supplies to the island from the mainland
  • Transports passenger vehicles for those wanting to visit the mainland via car for shopping, etc.
  • Ferry vessel docks in CALICA for disembarkation
