Earliest departure IAH
Cruising RCCL out of Galveston and will be taking a some type of shuttle to the airport upon return. This is my first trip out of Galveston and I am not sure what time to book my return flight. What is the earliest I should think about leaving Houston?

Carnival recommends no earlier than 1:30 It is a little over an hour drive in ideal weather & with no accidents or construction.

I would never book a flight before noon.... Houston traffic can be a nightmare with lanes shut down for construction and backups. No kidding, better safe than sorry.

I would feel comfortable with anything after 12 noon, as long as I planned on carrying my luggage off of the ship. I would add a couple of hours if I planned to leave my luggage out the night before.

If you are like me and get stress I would book something for around 1:00 PM.
