Went up to Dallas and brought my granddaughters here to take a 4 night cruise to Cozumel. You might want to try it as it is really a good time for all. The seas were calm, thank goodness, as I get really motion sick. I hardly felt the ship. We had a balcony room. It is great to go, but, wonderful to be home.
I think my next cruise will be an adult one. This was wonderful to have a first time cruise experience with my granddaughters, but, so much was geared towards the kids that we didn't see any of the evening shows. Plus, we were pooped after spending all day at the pool. My kiddos didn't want to do the activities they offered on the ship.
I'm taking my first cruise in less than a month, it is Carnival but we're not cruising out of Galveston, I'd like to take advantage of having a port so close to home at some point. Glad to hear it was a lot of fun!
On the 4 night one out of Galveston, on Carnival, don't expect fantastic food. It is banquet quality. Their buffets were fairly good. I am glad I am not a drinker as drinks are very expensive. We lucked out with fantastic weather. It only rained in Cosumel, but, the rest of the trip was glorious. If you want to go out to the clubs in the evenings, they have activites for kids until 3 am. We couldn't stay awake that long, but, there were a lot of people in the bars and dance clubs. They had a family friendly comedy act in the evening that was good. All in all, going with kiddos on this trip was just long enough.
I might get to go! it says same port in and out, you dont need a passport (please check for yourself first...im not liable for what you do) so im excited. My brother is on a cruise currently. I think I will take my red glass marker and go find his truck!
Sounds like fun! We have taken 2 seven day cruises out of Galveston and the Conquest and we absolutely loved it. That was 5 years ago though and not sure I would take my little kids on one but maybe when they are older.
