  1. wow, I didn’t realize that! We ended up eating supper at Salt Grass Steakhouse. The restaurant is nice and we went early to get a window seat. My seafood was good but my DH was disappointed in the flavor of his Filet Mignon. He was really looking forward to trying some Texas steak so I am not sure if his expectations was set too high or not. We had breakfast at Miller’s Seawall and grill, that was the best breakfast we had in a long time! They serve breakfast all day which is nice so you don’t have to worry about what time it is when you get there. Our last night in Galveston we went to The Original Mexican Cafe. The staff at this restaurant was very nice and the food did not disappoint.
  2. I wanted to come back here to let everyone know we went to Tabyana Beach through Carnival’s excursion and it really enjoyed it! It was nice how the staff helped us with what worked best for us, they moved some chairs for us to sit in instead of the lounge chairs. We didn’t find the people selling their items annoying, you will have to tell them ‘no’ every time you walk by one and just keep walking but that didn’t bother us. The area and beach was so pretty we would go back to this place again. We really liked being able to go out multiple times snorkeling unlike when you do a boat snorkel trip. The local people will go out with you if you want them to show you some of the areas. Thanks again for sharing your information!
  3. We are getting ready to try our first cove balcony, hoping for the best! We have only done the regular balconies and loved them. Lots of good info shared here thanks.
  4. I have another question on Tabyana beach excursion with Carnival. Since the excursion does not include food and drinks, do you run a tab or pay as you go?
  5. that is perfect! Thanks for letting us know!
  6. do you know if you can Uber from the Galveston port to our hotel near Hobby without much problems? We will not be in a hurry to catch a flight so didn’t want to schedule a shuttle. I wasn’t sure if it would be hard to get one if we are not off the ship right away.
  7. Is stairs the only option to get to the upstairs restaurant?
  8. Thanks for sharing the menu! I am glad to hear you like their food at Saltwater, my DH wants to try some Texas filets while we are there. Once he gets his belly full of steak we will probably move on to another place for drinks, we are open to any suggestions. We usually like to watch the action on the beach and water when we sail out of Florida, but since this is our first time in Galveston I just don’t know what to expect since it is not as warm there.
  9. Can you elaborate on the name of the steakhouse? I had looked at the Saltgrass Steak restaurant but would like another opinion. I searched for Galveston steak houses but there are several so I am not sure which one you are recommending. We do not want to spend $100 on a meal for 2 though!
  10. Walking out the gate down the hill then back up it when we return is exactly what we can’t do😳. So we decided to just do Tabyana Beach since it is right by Infinity. I really appreciate everyone’s input on this!
  11. We decided to do the Carnival Tabyana Beach excursion. Since it is just the 2 of us we don’t seem to be as brave to venture out that far from the port on our own. I think the accident in Belize has impacted us some and we normally are with a group of people. I am really glad you shared the information on the other places, I have saved it in my notes. My husband will be with me but he tires easy so I do need to pay attention to where I am at😊
